!

Rick just said so on his radio show, saying it was much more likely than not he'll start the season on the IR.

God damn.

He's not saying it was worse than expected, just that it's healing more slowly than expected, if you understand the difference I'm trying to say.

Yeh I just heard the same thing.

He also said that Bender has a bone bruise, nothing more, it just takes awhile to heal.

Pacers may look at Gary Trent

So we start:

Pollard
Croshere
Artest
Miller
Tinsley

I assume...?

Yep, that'll be it, Shade.

Not sure about that. Rick may be looking for more scoring punch than that lineup offers.

Maybe by pushing Artest at PF and starting SJAX at SF.

We are going to struggle to start this year, for sure. Will Bender be on the injured list?

If JO is put on there, then there won't be any room to even place JB on the injured list. Foster, Johnson, and JO will likely take up the three spots to begin the year.

Well okay, but I meant is Bender going to play? Is he capable of playing with a bone bruise?

Hicks
10-28-2004, 09:33 PM
I thought you could have more than 3 guys on the IR as long as you only have 15 total players? Or does the extra guy(s) have to just sit out in uniform?

Hicks

With Bender, they're just going to let it heal up. Sounds like it should be good to go in the next 1-3 weeks.

And to think, earlier articles claimed how "in shape" the team was coming into camp.

I see about a 45 win team right there. Pacers aren't that good unless they have J.O and Artest both playing and healthy

45!?!?! I see about 30-31 with that lineup.

Yeah, with Croshere and Pollard as our starting frontcourt no way we win 45 games. Sure hope this isn't going to be a problem all season.

Guys, Rick said "more likely than not" that he will start on the IL. He didn't say, "Yeah, we're looking at him being out from the begining of the season until _______". He might be back in four weeks, who knows.

And look on the bright side: This could show how well Bender has improved. That is, if he's healthy.

Starting to rethink those courtside tix I sprung for Nov 5th at Boston.

Doug, I'm going in January!

This news about Jermaine would really upset me if the Red Sox hadn't just won the world series. Now it's just moderately irritating.

Note to self: Find out whatever happened to the wife and kids while you were watching baseball for the past month.

Injured list means 5 games. That's 2 weeks, tops.

2 Tix, courtside

That's $280

Ouch

Remember when we were dying to find someone better than Foster?

Now I'm getting a sense of how much we need him.
