I'm starting to worry about Timelord. Isn't back-of-knee swelling what knocked KG out back in the 2009? title-defense season? He was "on his way back" for months, and ultimately never made it. That led to Brian Scalabrine playing huge minutes during the playoff run.

I sure hope not. Garnett had about a billion miles on the tires by then.

I thought KG had a more acute occurrence (against the Jazz, IIRC) where he strained his popliteus tendon? Then missed a chunk of time before trying to come back and looking obviously injured before getting shut down for the season?

I guess I am viewing TL out here-and-there differently than KG's missing that bloc of time after the Jazz game. And TL doesn't look actively hobbled to me when he plays - KG was a shell of himself when he tried to come back that season. Unpleasant what-if flashbacks.

For all those suggesting these are vaccination outages - aren't the official league rules that once vaccinated you are supposed to quarantine for 7 days for Moderna/Pfizer (at which time you are considered fully vaccinated)? Wouldn't that knock the players out for longer than we are seeing?

This article says nothing about a post-vaccine quarantine. The CDC states there's no reason to quarantine after the vaccine and everything the NBA is doing seems to be focused on encouraging the vaccine. I can't see them going against the CDC recommendation and making life more difficult on the players that get vaccinated.

I had zero arm issues both times I got the Pfizer vaccine, or any other issues.

Looking forward to seeing Pritchard start at PG. If he gets in foul trouble, does Tremont Waters get some real minutes? I’m guessing Romeo will get the first shot at backup PG

I was at the game last season against the Kings when Buddy was lighting up the Celtics, and Waters did a decent job slowing him down. He also had a couple of nice passes.

I was stunned watching how bad he was in LA the other night. Maybe he redeems himself tonight.

Mine was sore, but I was able to play keeper in an indoor soccer game. Others I know couldn't lift it over shoulder height

The one position in soccer where a shot in the arm could be a problem.

Very cool to have the GM be color commentator. Do other teams get that experience?

a shame Marcus won’t be taking horrific 3s to hear the commentary!
