    So far Harden, Davis, Butler

    This was a big topic last year, so I thought a preemptive thread was in order

    It certainly hurts them and helps us. Am I missing anything else?

    but not LeBron or Rondo, sadly...and Hark might've helped out a bit last night.

    This thread is actually very useful if you'll keep track of this data and update it periodically.

    I think it's useful because it gives us a better feel for how good the team is really.

    For example, I don't take the Pelicans game into account when i try to think of: "has the team improved from last year?" or "What tier does this team belong to?".

    Useful in what way? Trying to convince POR fans that we are the luckiest team in the league? Or do you actually plan on also tracking how many games those same players miss against other Western Conference teams. If not, I don't see how this will be "useful".

    Butler isn't injured. Butler is holding himself out because he wants a trade.

    The fact that Minnesota hasn't traded him is on their front office. This has been going on for MONTHS. It's their own fault that he's still on the team and causing a distraction. It's not like this is some misfortune that has befallen the team. It's something that has been brewing since last season. Let's not pretend like it's the same situation as Davis being out.

    Regardless of who is playing and who is not, Blazers still have to win. The Pels game wasn't easy to win.

    What about all of the seasons we've suffered as a team and fanbase with countless injuries? The 2009-10 season, we suffered through 20 separate injuries, and that's not even including Coach Nate being out for four games after tearing his Achilles while filling in at practice since we were down so many people, or both Paul Allen and Maurice Cheeks dealing with cancer and altering the team's psyche. We went through some deep shit that year.

    Don't we deserve a season or two with pretty good to great team health?

    No one....so far anyway, is saying anything. Again, it was just a big topic later last season and the off season.
