Will this actually be the first game of the season where every player on the roster is available?
That would be a significant milestone...

And the dream of fielding a full squad escapes us once more, perhaps to live another day, perhaps to remain forever out of reach.

If the dream of a full squad is out of reach, then all I wish is that the following four players stay healthy for the rest of the year:

JT
JB
TL
TT

If these 4 are healthy, I think the Cs can win missing anyone else.

It really is crazy how important both TT and TL are to this team. The team relies on both of them to be healthy because neither one seems capable of going much longer than 25 minutes a night. If one gets injured, it means a lot of Kornet.

Kornet is a decent regular season guy. In the playoffs, I suspect he'd get eaten alive.

Cs do ask a lot out of their Centers. TT and TL are pretty much always on the move when they are playing.

Or even worse GW. But really I think we need just about everybody healthy to compete with Milwaukee, Philly or Brooklyn.

TT is the least important out of the top 7 IMO.

A healthy Kemba and Fournier can move the needle.

TT is consistently OK-ish. not great, not terrible.
He's not "great" in the sense that he doesn't provide a huge scoring or space the floor or have Timelord's game-changing athleticism or anything like that, but he brings his lunch pail and sets picks for the Jays and snakes to the paint to clear out the big. It's a combination of that workmanlike stuff, which needs to be done to let the Jays flourish, and the drop-off to someone like Kornet when one of Thompson or Timelord can't play, that I think makes him just as important as Fournier, especially given Timelord doesn't have a track record of playing a ton of minutes per game. Think of him as Baynes without the man bun and the accent. Not "great" but still important.

Fournier leaves his man to wave his arm at the drive. He's been brutal again.

Not sure I've ever seen a team get tripled up in a quarter, but it's about to happen to Boston.

Unreal bad.. Has any team in NBA history had 1 player score all their points in the 1st (or any) quarter?
