    Exactly the way I go about things.

    Oh, look who liked your post... Now that I think about it, that's literally how everyone on the forum is! Mixed with a ton of tongue-in-cheek stuff.

    Lillard Preparing As If McCollum Will Miss Rest Of Regular Season

    March 19th 2019 at 10:01am CST by Luke Adams

    After suffering a left knee injury over the weekend, C.J. McCollum is expected to be re-evaluated this Saturday. However, Damian Lillard told reporters last night that he’s not necessarily counting on his backcourt mate to be back anytime soon.

    As Jason Quick of The Athletic relays, Lillard wants McCollum to get back to 100% before he returns and is mentally preparing for him to miss the rest of the regular season.

    “I don’t want him to have to rush it. And when he does come back, I want him to be himself and be healthy,” Lillard said, per Joe Freeman of The Oregonian. “So, in my mind, we’re going to finish the regular season without him.”

    The Trail Blazers remain in a tight race for home-court advantage in the first round of the postseason. Currently, the team holds the No. 4 seed, with a 1.5-game cushion over the Spurs and Thunder and a two-game lead over Utah.

    While Portland would certainly like to have McCollum back in its lineup as soon as possible to secure a top-four spot in the conference, it makes more sense to hold him out until he’s fully healthy — especially since the team’s schedule isn’t particularly brutal down the stretch. Outside of two games vs. Denver and two vs. Detroit, the Blazers don’t face any opponents above .500 the rest of the way.

    Perhaps the ideal outcome for the Blazers would be to get McCollum back a few games before the end of the regular season. That could allow him to shake off the rust before the playoffs begin while potentially returning in time for what could be a crucial home-and-home set against the Nuggets on April 5 and April 7. We’ll have to wait to see how McCollum’s recovery progresses, however.

    The great news even if he can't make it back this year, is that there shouldn't be anything long term from this injury. I really hope he can make it back for the last few games, but as long as he doesn't feel rushed and they can wait for him to get 100% I'm happy.
    I loved how Dame played last night too, I thought he might go into hero ball with CJ out, instead he went into I'm going to get every guy out here involved mode, they covered for CJ with using everybody who had some of minutes.

    So my thoughts: It makes sense to get CJ back in April, but if he is not ready until the lakers game and if our seed gets locked up by then, why even bring back in meaningless games? I would only want to bring him back at 100% first and if we need his help to lock up a better seed. So I hope he good before the Memphis game at least to give him about 2 weeks rest. This rest can also be good for the other guys and get a chance to step and prove themselves.

    The only reason would to be to knock off some rust and get a rhythm back before playoffs.

    If he is cleared and healthy it would be nice to get him back for a few games to get his game back and get in basketball shape. Obviously won't be able to do much cardio with a bad knee.

    Oh yeah if he gets healthy, then bring him back. I’m just being a little worried that is all.
