    Of course Collins and Nurkic will be back. But what about other injured players like Kevin Durant or Kyrie Irving? Could any of them be back for a playoffs that starts in mid May? This certainly helps the Sixers who are waiting on Ben Simmons to heal.

    Will Collins for sure be back? When was he expected to return?

    Yeah, there's no way this scenario doesn't fuck someone over or give someone an advantage they wouldn't have had otherwise. Just think about how Milwaukee must be feeling right now.

    Milwaukee probably feels good about it. Giannis can recover from his knee injury.

    Clearly I'm talking about if the season were to be over...

    Actually it wasn’t clear as you were mentioning advantages teams may have because of the season suspension.

    If it goes on for 3 months we would have a lottery pick and still have a chance to make the playoffs

    Or teams getting fucked over... Are we really arguing about this?

    Doesn't take a brain scientist to figure out which category Milwaukee would fall into.

    They can call the members of the 94 Expos for sympathy.

    We gonna have our guys back soon. This is more time for Zach and Nurkic and this break is perfect for us to heal and finding ways to improve our defense

    Players are going to start missing game checks. Wonder if any will be strapped for cash due to unexpected stoppage.

    which is another reason why CJ's immediate reactions to this news pissed me off. dude came off as a classic entitled athlete who is so far up his own ass.

    i know you can't say anything, but that pissed me off for you.

    Nurk Fever suspended! When we play Memphis again both Nurk and Collins should be available

    I think the standings now will be the standings at the end of the regular season. NBA will suspend season until the start of the playoffs. My 2 cents.
