    No Hayward tonight (ankle but probably just rest on a road B2B).

    I'm sure it being a road B2B had something to do with Hayward sitting, but still having ankle soreness can't be a good sign for him regaining his explosiveness any time soon, can it?

    Not totally unexpected (his injury is far far worse and more complicated than the Paul George tibial fracture or Lavert subtalar dislocation), but also not a good sign, I agree.

    I assume he has been getting follow up imaging and any easily fixable persistent issues are no longer present, but developing arthritis, bone proliferation, impingement and/or incompetent ligament scarring are common problems that could be long term. It would obviously be more reassuring if Hayward was pain free at this point, more than a year post injury.

    There is still definitely time for more improvement, and we may not have much certainly on his bounce back potential until the end of the season. But a high BBIQ point forward with well below average NBA athleticism and some upside as a shooter is an outcome that's still on the table unfortunately (not close to a max player of course).

    Eh, remember how the NBA dislikes folks sitting if they could play, so calling it ankle soreness gets the NBA off their backs and gives him a day off.

    Hope that's the case, though I think the Celtics had said Hayward wouldn't routinely get the second half of back to backs off. So if he's out with ankle soreness, I presume it actually is sore. If this had been planned for weeks, that's obviously preferable.

    That's true. But Rozier has knee soreness and it doesn't mean anything is really "wrong". Hoping it's the same with Gordon.

    I think the fact that they took the minute restriction off is pretty meaningful, so hopefully this is more maintenance than anything.

    And I remember the Celtics saying he wouldn't need those days off, but there's really no baseline for this.

    I appreciate radsoxfan's informed perspective and I agree that Hayward's progression continues to bear watching. However this is the second game of a road back-to-back right after ("Fuck") Thanksgiving AKA early in the season. Brad giving Hayward an extra night off not only gives him more rest but also allows Jaylen and the rotation some more minutes to work out their issues.

    On another note, I am stoked to watch the C's play Luka, especially one night after playing Young with the Hawks. Its still too early but I have a feeling that Atlanta is going to regret the day they traded away Doncic, even if Young becomes a good NBA scorer.

    Hayward out, Horford in. Dennis Smith out for Mavs.

    Al's back so I'm afraid Luka is going to go for 35 tonight.

    So this is my first time watching Doncic. He’s definitely not a great athlete by NBA standards, but he plays really fast. Like, he seems to be going full speed all the time...

    Mavs 4/4 from deep to start the game, and only up 13-12, because Tatum is SMOKING HOT.

    See that was a great decision by Jayson. No deferring. A wide open shot that he knows he can make.

    I like Tatum on Doncic more than Brown. His length seems to be more of a problem.

    I gave the coaches a lot of shit until recently for not getting him playing the right way, but things have looked a lot better recently. And he always brings effort on D and the boards.

    Great decision making by Brown there. They are looking pretty good thus far save for Jayson blowing that bunny.
