I hope they do what they need to do so we can have him during the playoffs. 

Maybe we play him the same amount of minutes we did last year (I think it was only 29 per game or something), BUT cap his max minutes to something like 35 minutes in any given game.  With some "load managed" nights off every now and then, or at least that is what we SHOULD do.

Morant and Bane? Both looked good last night.

Almost feels like a rest night. They did seem fine last night.

Ja turned is ankle towards the end of the game from stepping on someone’s foot (maybe Russell, I forgot.). He limped on it, tightened up his laces, and kept going. Was a little hesitant and ginger on it at first, but looks like it loosened up and he was 80-90%. I’m sure today it felt a lot worse.

We are OBVIOUSLY built really well for the playoffs (assuming everyone is healthy) with a LEGIT 1 (Ja Morant) AND a legit 1a (Desmond Bane).  Jaren/Dillon split 3rd/4th option duties with Adams/BC/Aldama/Tyus knowing their roles too.

HOWEVER, not sure we have enough HIGH END scoring to maintain a high seed all season.  We don't have a ton of firepower if EITHER Ja or Bane is out -- at the very least until Jaren gets back.  

And, ZW is closer to being an X factor than a LEGIT "IT" guy anyway.

The REGULAR season is a grind.  Hopefully we don't get too beaten up and bruised by the time the playoffs run around.  We are ALSO not a team that gets a ton of stops night in and night out.  Our grit/grind comes and goes... usually relying on Ja/Bane (and Dillon) OUTSCORING the other teams.  I doubt we can rely on VIDEO GAME Ja Morant AND VIDEO GAME Desmond Bane every single night.

... so maybe our win total at the end of the season gets to be a bit deflated... so instead of a top 3 seed you look more like a 5ish seed.  Then at that point, you are too close to those play-in round teams.

I would give Jaren a little bit more time and find a better matchup for him first game.

Let Adams/Tillman/Roddy face Zion and JV.

Is it true that Zaire has also been upgraded to doubtful?

No he was still listed as out for last game. I guess we'll see for tomorrow's game soon.

Speaking of which, how's Jaren looking? A tad heavier, stronger?

I’m ready!

Had surgery on June 29th. They said 4-6 months. Will be 4 months, 3 weeks. Nice it was on the front end. AND, we are only 1/2 a game out of 1st place. I would have been extremely happy if someone told me the day it was announced he’d be out 4-6 months, we’d only be a half game out when he returns.
