I actually agree with the Mavericks' policy of resting players on B2Bs (KP in particular), especially given that they are not in a position to contend for a championship.

After Durant's ruptured Achilles I think teams may have a different awareness, and are taking a longer-term view of injury recovery, in particular with what seems to be an inordinate amount of B2Bs in a COVID-compressed season.

As for the Nets "holding out" Durant, Harden, Griffin, and Aldridge:

1) Harden is 31 years old, overweight, and dealing with a pulled hamstring; he's injured, not just being held out.

2) Durant is 32 years old, and is coming of a missed season due to the ruptured Achilles, PLUS rehabbing back into game shape through COVID.

3) Griffiin is 32 years old, and experiencing ongoing issues with the knee on which he had a surgical procedure, and has alsp been rehabbing and getting into game shape through COVID.

4) Aldridge just retired with a heart issue.

None of these cases is really a comparable issue to resting otherwise healthy players.

Portland has had a really rough schedule. Think one of the toughest to finish the season. In the last week, super competitive one point losses to Celtics, Clippers, and Nuggets. Powell is fitting in very well, I think they have an outside shot of beating one of the top seeds.

Vooch and Lavine look good, and seemed to have mesh well. But too little too late to get into the play in. Theyll be fun to watch next season. But I dont have too much faith in Donovan either.

Havent really followed the heat. Oladipo hasnt been playing.

Nuggets were my dark horse to get to the finals before Murray went down. Aaron Gordon is the piece to get them over the top.

Pelicans' Zion Williamson out indefinitely with fractured ring finger

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — New Orleans star Zion Williamson is sidelined indefinitely with a fractured left finger, a major blow to the Pelicans’ run at a Western Conference Play-In spot.

The 20-year-old forward averaged 27 points and 7.2 rebounds in 61 games and the injury comes before the Pelicans opened a five-game trip against certain or potential playoff teams. The Pelicans made the announcement Friday before they played the Eastern Conference-leading Philadelphia 76ers.

The Pelicans said a timetable for Williamson’s return would be determined upon further evaluation. He appeared to hurt the finger trying to grab a rebound Tuesday against Golden State.

Pelicans vice president of basketball operations David Griffin ripped the NBA and its officiating for not doing more to protect their franchise player.

“I’m really frustrated because this was avoidable,” he said. “We told the NBA through every means available to us, through sending in film, through speaking to everybody in the officials department, everybody in basketball operations, that the way they were officiating Zion was going to get him injured. Quite frankly, he’s injured now because of the open season that there’s been on Zion Williamson in the paint. He’s been absolutely mauled in the paint on a regular basis to the point other players have said to him (they will) keep doing this to you because they don’t call it.”

San Antonio’s recent five-game losing streak helped the Pelicans pull within 1 1/2 games of the final Western Conference Play-In spot with six games to go. New Orleans’ second-leading scorer Brandon Ingram was out of the lineup with a left ankle sprain. Steven Adams (toe sprain) and Josh Hart (thumb) also were set to miss Friday’s game.

New Orleans’ road trip will continue at Charlotte, Memphis, Dallas and Golden State. The Pelicans’ lone remaining home game is their season finale against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Their playoff chances look much more daunting without Williamson.

“He doesn’t complain. He doesn’t yell at officials. He doesn’t flop. He doesn’t sell calls,” coach Stan Van Gundy said. “He’s the kind of guy that should get favorable treatment because of the way he acts, but that’s not what works. What works is yelling and complaining and flopping and selling calls. He doesn’t do any of that.”

Jose Juan Barea and Estudiantes have reached an agreement for the two sides to part ways according to Encestando. The former NBA champion had joined the team on January, signing a contract until the end of the season

Fortunately they didn't pay much for him. Pacers made out like bandits, trading the disruptive Oladipo for LeVert.

2 days after he bought a $7 million mansion in Miami. I think I read it’s the same muscle that he had surgery on.

Watching games on TNT just got better. Unfortunately Reggie is still there.

With the NBA playoffs days away, TNT and longtime analyst Chris Webber have reportedly parted ways.

The New York Post reports that Webber and the network agreed to a split on Thursday. The two sides did not conduct negotiations on a new contract leading up to the split, according to the report.

Webber had worked as a color commentator and occasional studio analyst at TNT since 2008. He joined the network shortly after the conclusion of his 15-season NBA career.

I kind of like Reggie. Never liked Webber as an analyst but he has gotten better. He’s still not good. He used to be terrrrible.

Webber would have been the best player-turned-analyst on Turner if he'd worked in the studio instead of calling games. He's pretty sharp and clearly admires the current crop of players, but he's too long-winded and soft-spoken for live action.

Reggie, Marv, and especially Shaq should all be canned too.

Marv was breathing heavy last night. Sounded like he had just run a marathon. He’s been off all season calling out wrong players and such. Might be time to hang it up.

You know I came on here pissed about the whole Oladipo trade...still a fair trade but I really undersold Olynyk. He's turned out to be a damn good player. His skillset for that size is pretty incredible.

I always chalked that up as Webber being relatively new but he's been doing it for some time now hasn't he? I really like him though. He really does a great job.

Shaq does suck.....but Shaq, Barkley, Kenny and Ernie is gold lol.

I noticed this out of Westbrook last night as well. it's like he's out of gas having just given 110% during the regular season. And this has been a common denominator for him during his NBA career.

Gosh...uhm...where have we seen this before? A guy spends the entire regular season chasing triple-doubles and individual honors, gassed by the time the playoffs roll around. Westbrook....Harden......Bueller? ...Bueller?

Well, in fairness to Westbrook, he was passing very well and getting the ball to his shooters, but they just couldn't get the ball in the hoop. He had a good assist number and it would have been better if they could make shots.

Yeah I was actually surprised how the Wizzards finished up the year considering the way they started and RW was a huge reason for that turnaround.

Honestly if his contract was cheaper I think he would be just the type of talent this team needs in terms of a guy who goes all out every minute of every game.

They could use someone like RW's energy and pitbull attitude on the court

NBA crew talking about how Drummond is struggling defending GS. Said he needs to bends his knees and get in a defensive stance. Sounds familiar. Lakers looking like a team that assumes they are going to win, but didn’t realize they actually have to play hard.

Besides Luka I think Curry is my favorite player to watch. Some of the shots he makes are just ridiculous.

Same, but then losing twice seemed highly unlikely.

Yeah, it will be nice to see CP3 once again fail to make it out of the first round.

Lebron is such a poon.

“Second thing I saw was three rims from being poked in the eye from that previous possession when I drove to the hole in transition. So I just aimed for the middle one. I’ve practiced enough, I work on on my game. I was able to through the man above and through a lot of practice I was able to drain it.”

What a massive floppy dildough.

I thought the same thing. He tries to talk it up like he made this impossible shot. It was a lucky shot with no pressure. If he makes it he makes this “impossible” shot at the end of the shot clock. He misses and nobody thinks twice about it because it’s not his fault it was the end of the shot clock, and nobody expected the shot to go in.

You would have thought prime Mike Tyson punched him in the face the way he was acting after Draymond fouled him. I love basketball, but these guys gotta quit acting like they got shot when they get hit with a hard foul.

LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James was found to be in breach of the NBA's health and safety protocols this week, a league spokesperson told ESPN on Friday night.
James won't be suspended, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, as the nature of the event didn't rise to a threat level of virus spread.

Oh great. Potentially 7 games of Cliff Troll (the walking short man complex) vs. LeFlop. I think they both managed to foul each other and flop on the same play. All we needed was CP pretending to get hurt at the same time as LeBron and we’d have had a rare double hat trick.
