Trent will play more than Simons, but he’s also more proven. Now is Simons time. Third year in the league, second in the rotation. No excuses, he either steps up or the team (should) moves on from him.
This is absolutely true, but it is still Trent and Hood who will be taking over for CJ. Simons needs to step up as well as he needs to spell Dame, but Trent plays the same position as CJ. Trent is the one who is looking for a big contract this summer. In my mind, he has much more to prove if he wants to get "paid".
Was talking to my friend who studied sports med and orthapedics. He thinks 4 wks is super generous. Even if it heals, it will need strengthening that could push it to 6-8 wks. The reccuring thing is another worry.
This team man.....
ok great...you've discovered that people posting on the internet...such as ourselves....are not always consistent thinkers, or posters. Let's see if we can gauge who commits the most egregious sins of inconsistency. That gauge can be pinned at the top of the meltdown thread
after that exercise, maybe we should consider why it is that this Portland roster is almost never healthy; that "completely healthy Blazer squad" seems to be a mirage.
What are the odds to lose Nurk and CJ in back to back games?
it sounds like it was non-displaced, so maybe all that happened was that it increased inflammation
maybe less than the odds that these things come in three's...yikes!
So what you're saying is there's a chance Melo gets hurt next?
I think the 4 weeks is just when they check up on it again.
Probably, realistically, Nurk, Collins and CJ are pretty much out until March at the earliest*.
*pulled directly out of my arse, but based on the Blazers bad luck
Everyone is ignoring the obvious solution: Have Nurk carry CJ on his back as a single player.
Lis franc injury.....that completely derailed Chien Ming Wang career as a promising pitcher for the Yankees. That makes me nervous. Other players have had better results afterwards and I'm sure the treatment has advanced. Still.....ugh!
Please blow it up. Dame won’t do it but get him out of his misery and trade him. Trade cj. Trade Nurk. Let’s rebuild and do it right
Is the water in Oregon calcium deficient? The water here in the midwest is super hard and I constantly see calcium deposits everywhere. Maybe this is leading to brittle bones. Legit question.
Seriously don't people get sick of watching the same rerun over and over and over?
If you haven't seen this one before, I apologize for the spoiler. Dame will play 40+ a night, he will carry this rotting corpse into the playoffs where we will be unceremoniously given a gentleman's sweep out of the first round. People will applaud Stotts for "doing what he could with the roster he had" and Neil will talk about how good this team will be when it's healthy next year. Blah blah blah blah and then he'll draft some diamond in the rough shooting guard in the second round next summer.
Exactly. Then it buys another year for Stotts. Just blow this shit up and let’s do it again.
If this team didn't have bad luck they'd have no luck at all!
