Smart's questionable and Teague is out.

Tonight's guard rotation could be interesting.


with Teague out, I expect Smart will play.  expect a lot of Pritchard tonight.  god help me if they have to resort to Edwards or Waters on the court.


Edwards will do ONE thing , guaranteed....shoot alot .....a whole lot .....and mostly likey miss most of them .

It's Payton Pritchard time.  Let him do his thing.  Predicting 15, 7, 5, and 3 steals...

Yeah, it's reminiscent of the 2012 season

If Smart is out, who starts?

Pritchard, probably.

Or hell, maybe Brad will go Triple Towers on us with the R Williams/Theis/Thompson front court.

Please play Waters. He can at least make a 3 from time to time. Also play strong 1 on 1 D/steal the ball

Of course we have to lose both of our guards at the same time. On top of not having Kemba, just when we were starting to show some semblance of competency on offense.

If Pritchard gets into foul trouble as fast as he did last night, we're in big trouble.

Obviously we'll see a lot of Pritchard, something like 35+ minutes, and with Waters getting some minutes too.  But might be a chance for Nesmith to get some minutes too, since Jaylen will probably get more minutes at the 2.

But if the game is close, wouldn't be surprised to see some big lineups with Tatum running the point for at least a couple of minutes at a time. 

Tatum/Brown+ some 3 man combination of Ojeleye/Nesmith/Grant/Theis/Thompson/Time Lord.

Is he out? I thought he was questionable.

Tatum was questionable for a thumb sprain last week and played and played well. Same could happen with Smart....that is unless he has been determined to be out and I haven't seen it yet.

I think we're going to see a good dose of Nesmith today. Excited to see how he does
