Apparently Tatum and Kanter can't go and Brown is still questionable. What do you suppose our rotation will look like? Im guessing Ojeleye and Smart gets the start, plus lots of Small Ball with Williams at Center. Im curious with how would Langford or Green look when playing with starters.

Great - I am going to this game, too. Hopefully Brown will at least be able to play. Even though we are certainly a better team than the Magic, we can only withstand so many injuries to our core before falling off a cliff. We will need a hot night from Romeo or Carsen otherwise.

Both Doc with Bradley and Stevens with Brown gave a young guy a chance to play with the starters when Ray Allen and Avery Bradley went down with injuries, respectively. It worked tremendously at keeping the starting unit effective and gave Bradley and Brown a tremendous learning experience and a ton of confidence and both players really prospered and developed after that.

Would giving Grant Williams or Romeo Langford the start and letting them play with the starters jump start their confidence and development if they start for a week or more? It could happen.

Now is Hayward's chance to lead the pack.

Kanter is our but both Tatum and Brown are questionable. Tatum hasnít been officially ruled out yet, though Iíd be surprised if he plays. I think Brown is more likely to play of the two.

So tired of these injuries. At this point, every time a player is about to return, I fully expect someone else to go down.

maybe it is just me, but I am more worried about Tatum being out for an extended period.  Groin injuries are bad...

I know the reports said he avoided a 'serious' groin injury, but those things are hard to fully recover from.

Didn't Lebron miss quite a lot of time last season with something similar?

I love this thread!  It is so true.  They seem to not be able to catch a break!
