    Surprised you didn't insert "Zeller injury" into that lyric structure. "We all witnessed a Zeller injury, a Zeller injury, a Zeller injury..."

    I thought they said soonish, like not long after the season opener.

    Seems like players usually get back pretty quick on a broken nose. I'm assuming he will play with a mask for a while?

    Roto wire has him out for Friday vs Golden State. Maybe the opener? He is no longer on an Injury report and is cleared to play but it seems they will hold him out anyway.

    If our success hinges on anything related to Zeller I might have to lower my prediction of 41 wins.

    Zeller will make a positive impact. Can play defense and is tall.

    You had someone else playing backup center?

    If the rest of the roster is healthy it probably doesn't matter much for 5 or so games. Nance can play backup center fine with Roco the emergency option.

    It's once the Blazers have another player out or Nurk missing time that Zeller absence would be an issue.

    Although with all the new players, coaches, and schemes if they can have everyone active there might be some benefits just to build synergy.

    Feels like the Celtics and the Blazers got a divorce and EK is alternating weekends between them, like his big brother ET did before.

    He has to be on the court. To those saying Nance can cover the center position? He has to be on the court as well.
    One thing about Kanter. He was an absolute Warrior! Give you meaningful minutes playing with one arm. Tough as nails!

    I like Nance, but he will be abused by true centers. He's too small. Zeller get well soon.

    Blazers IG just posted a pic of Zeller in a mask and practice jersey. Looks like he's at least semi-returned.
