Well, I agree that he is probably going to be the best player of this team. At this point, I think JR is playing best.


I'll take Ball overall, but I'm glad to have both. and Jules

I've been hot and cold, but his improvement this year has squashed all doubts.

It's a shame both Ingram and Ball both got hurt in the middle of them rolling.

I'm glad we have about 3-4 guys to argue over who is our best prospect seemingly every other week.

On a side note, the KD comparisons are really unfair. He was the original unicorn, a dynamic two way Kobe archetype with 5 extra inches of height. If anything BI's playing style is closer to Lebron being primarily a slasher and playmaker, but he's gonna need to develop a protein fetish before he can even sniff those levels of play.

I doubt he plays until next Friday at earliest.

Just going off how cautious they are with the young guys. Itís at the expense of winning a couple of more games but that seems to be their philosophy for this season.

I read on twitter that we wonít know his status until pregame


On March 5 they said he would be evaluated in about a week, so that should happen in the next couple of days. He wonít play tonight, he hasnít been checked out.

Maybe the diagnosis is so minor that they probably know about it and arenít in a hurry to put the re-evaluation status to the public, if he was gonna be out for a while one would assume someone would say it by now.

How would they know that if he hasnít been re-evaluated? Which he hasnít been.

I don't understand why they handle the reporting of injuries the way that they do. Seems like this would be a good under-promise/over-deliver situation. Tell fans that you think it's gonna be a 3-4 week injury, re-evaluate him in 1, and then everyone's happy if he's back in 2-3 weeks.

It's not about the fans. It's about forcing the opposition to prepare as if a player might play. Make them spend some futile effort.

I agree with it.

I'd much rather them be overly cautious. And we don't know it's "overly" to begin with as we don't know the inside details.

Because it was never a week long injury.

It's overly cause even before Lonzo came back, he said he was ready and could play right now but the team is just waiting t'ill after the break. I bet if you ask Brandon, he would tell you he can play right now. Their logic probably was "Oh the Cavs are down 3-4 guys, we can buy ourselves a game by resting Brandon here".

Hate to break it to you, GT, but the injury reporting in sports is not for the fans - it's for the gamblers.

If it was up to the coaches, they'd say nothing and make opponents guess who was going to be out there. But sports leagues have known since the early days of horse racing that gambling (legal & otherwise) is a huge boost to interest & viewership, and much of the info out there (injuries, lineups, etc.) was initially published for the benefit of bettors.

We'd all like to see BI play, but I'm glad they're cautious. We're pretty much locked in at the 11th seed. There's no reason to press on through injury.

I've been hoping they can make a push for 40 wins, but at the end of the day it's just an arbitrary number as long as we're out of the playoffs.

I would hate for BI to play before he's completely ready, but I'd love to have more firepower when Denver skulks into Staples.

They need to sign Bynum to a 10 day contract.

It's frustrating to see the lack of depth on our team with BI (and Hitman) out. In all honesty, unless it is a blowout, I don't want to see the likes of Ennis, Wear, Zu, or Caruso touching a court, but they've seen some major minutes as of late. Frankly those guys haven't played too bad, but I'm still holding out a slightest bit of hope at an 8 seed, and I don't see it happening if they are playing meaningful minutes.
