Is the big man gonna play or not? When will we get some sort of update?
Two weeks is Thursday. Stotts was on the radio this AM and said he'd be reevaluated at two weeks. He clarified that he's being evaluated this entire time off and they're watching how he follows the protocol the training staff set in place, but they would not run more x-rays until a full two weeks which would be Thursday. So I suspect we'll know something later Thursday or Friday. My thought: Or maybe they'll hold back some info to throw GS off.
There was an update today that he went through some sort of on court workout with stackpole.
THANKS. Let's keep these updates coming.
Hopefully they installed cameras in every room of his house to make sure he doesn't break protocol.
I bet he has a dart board with Malones face on it in his God cave (the Nurkic version of man cave).
Realistically I'm sure he's doing everything he can to get healthy
According to OregonLive:
"The center who resurrected their season suffered a non-displaced fracture in his right leg on March 28 and has missed the last six games. His postseason status is expected to be determined on Friday, when doctors reevaluate his leg."
Can you merge the other thread with this one?
If you follow the blazers on Snapchat there's one of nurkic warming up before tonight's game.
I'm hoping they installed extra handles everywhere in every shower he might employ.
In fact, I want him just floating in a pool of amniotic fluid like those "pre-cogs" in 'Minority Report.'
I hope they don't disclose his status, or try to keep it as low key as possible. We are a completely different team with Nurkic, fuck letting the Warriors know anything, let em gameplan for two teams.
Steve Kerr even said that it's tough to prepare without knowing because of how different we are when Nurk is out there. Said "They'll still run a lot of screens and flairs" but with Nurk out there everything is different cause they have to account for us running our offense through him.
Last night I was thinking to myself that this is the plan the whole time. We played so damn well with him, I mean Portland is a completely different team with him, enough to basically clinch the 8th spot before he went out, so then they bench him to try to throw off the Warriors. I'm also a conspiracy theorist so.......
Well, if that's really the case they should have him hobbling around on crutches instead of doing pregame workouts in plain sight.
True. If they were doing that then they might as well go all out with it.
They should push him to center court in a wheel chair paul pierce style before he goes full cuck norris on the worriors for 40 points 20 boards and 10 blocks and then impregnates their whole dance team
I have a good feeling he's starting game 1
