    I'm not saying that fatigue is the reason....I just know, from experience, that fatigue can lead to injury

    minutes/game:

    1 James Harden 37.1
    2
    Damian Lillard 37.0
    3
    Kyle Lowry 36.5

    minutes:

    1 Damian Lillard 1960
    2
    Ben Simmons 1926
    3
    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander 1918

    even a minor groin injury can take 2-3 weeks to heal....a significant groin injury can take 6-8 weeks to heal

    I won't want to watch CJ and Melo being options 1a & 1b; even for a single game

    good let it take 6-8 weeks shit. Dame deserves the rest. This season was done a long time ago. Dame has nothing to prove this year. He got his all star bid fuck it. Let’s tank it the rest way out and run this shit back next year healthy and ready to go

    Haha. I’m sure he’ll be great. But CJ too can be great. I think maybe watching so much iso has gotten to me a little bit.

    Grade 1 strains will take 1 to 2 weeks of rest before a person can return to exercise. Normal movement, such as walking, should be possible within a few days.

    Grade 2 strains may take 3 to 6 weeks to heal fully.

    Potentially 3-6 weeks?

    That's the season folks. Lotto here we come!

    Well looking at the positives

    1. At least Memphis isn't ahead of us in the standings. :blink:

    2. Nobody put up a career high on us. :wacko:

    Damn I jinxed Dame. The play before that I told my son “good thing Dame never gets injured or we’d be really f****d. :(

    Uh-huh. What is his current ratio of good games to bad games? He is years away from becoming a reliable member of the rotation.

    At what point do they admit the Melo experiment failed? He didn't just hit the wall - he went full bug-on-the-windshield. The gas tank is empty.

    The top 40 players are getting 33 or more minutes. Good players generally play more.

    Ok, you go tell Dame your brilliant plan and let us know how he takes it.

    If I'm wrong - great. You have to admit that his game is unrefined and that he needs to put on muscle. To my feeble old eyes, Trent and Little have a man's body while Simons looks like a high school kid.
