That doesn't say there's been a setback, just that he's not back yet. And again, he wasn't expected to be.

He only played 20 minutes tonight, and that was without Kyrie available.
True. But some real rest and recovery time after going NBA speed for awhile might be just what he needs too, yeah? There is no way NBA guys get full recovery during the season, and it can make a huge difference.

I heard Scal and Mike talking about it but nothing more. Seems odd for a guy who is the best player on the team and a presumed all star not to be out there when the game was still relatively close.
Nets Daily says it was a teachable moment as he wasn't getting in proper rebounding position. I like Russell but Kemba would fit really well with the Nets.

He only played 21 minutes last night, but it was because he had to leave the game in the first half to get 2 stitches in his hand. So, he only played 9 minutes in the 1st half. If he didn't get hurt, he would have gotten his usual 25 minutes or so.

This is the third game this season where both teams had over 100 FGA in a non-OT game and the first time OKC wasn't involved. If I weren't so lazy, I'd look up the refs.
