As seen in the Injury Thread…

Per McTen (Press Release at link)

Kyle Kuzma was in visible discomfort during his postgame media session last night. He is listed as doubtful for the PHX game. LeBron James will miss his fourth straight game after a brief two-game return from the high ankle sprain.

Crazy part is that for the most part PHX has matched up well with us this year dating back to the preseason.

Going to be interesting to see if they take that route. They are 3 games up on the Clippers. That’s a lot of tanking to do right before the playoffs.

We've only had two quality wins all season by my measure, and one of them required Lebron and KCP combining for 13 threes.

I'll take anything at this point. Anything to have some idea as to this team's potential.

I think so, we're basically 2-3 games behind cause we lost the tie breaker to both

As soon as the Lakers lost both games @Dallas, it was going to be tough to get a top 6 seed.

Now with Lebron sitting out more games to get healthy, 7/8 is like 99.8% guaranteed.

Must Lose.

Need two more losses (today and vs NY) plus a PDX win vs Houston tomorrow to lock up #7. Then Lebron comes back and they can start winning again.

Play-in followed by PHX in rd 1 much better than 6 seed and Clips in rd 1.

Must play a competitive game and give best effort. Get acclimated for the playoffs. Win or lose doesn't matter.

It's pretty obvious to me we're tanking right now to avoid clips in the 1st round. If we had a legit chance to get the #5 slot everybody would be playing.

Im not even sure we can bear them even if they are trying to tank.

They might have to play 4 players

When is DS due back? From what I saw, it's 10-14 days quarantine...Whether it's 10 or 14 days is a pretty big difference.
