I've looked all over the pacers website and it just has him listed as injured, but not for how long or anything like that. I'm wondering cuz I'm going to the game on saturday against the Bulls and Bender has always been my fav.

I've heard that Bender should be ready to play in the season opener. But things can change. He practiced yesterday, but in limit fashion. So it's 50/50 for that game, but I imagine he should be ready to go by Saturday. Although, this is Bender we are talking about.

Asked afterward if O'Neal's absence contributed to Charlotte's win, Knight bristled.

"What about Primoz? They didn't have Shaq, but we didn't have Primoz," he said.

As Ron would say, "He's not injured, you know, he just got hurt a little bit......"

I think he will play until shortly after the opening tip.

I think it's more likely than not, and I think he'll play about 15-20 min.

I'm thinking yes. Don't have any feel for how long, but I believe he will play.

Ok lets play a game here....lets guess how long Bender will last before getting hurt again...

I am going to say 13 minutes into game 1

Probably trips trying to take off his warm-ups as he is entering game 1 and is done for the season

1 min 38.22 sec . . . but that might be a stretch.

Serious prediction:

He plays 15 minutes in game one. Between game one and two we learn the knee has inflamed and he's out another eight games.

When he comes back, he plays well for three weeks and then goes down for another two months with a different type injury.

I would like to adjust my prediction to 0.00.00.

I bet he plays like 16 minutes and gets 11 points.

Somebody, wearing #24 and with a face like Bender's but a little bigger body played in the game.

Looked really agressive, too. No 'dear in the headlights' moments.

So no, I guess Bender didn't play. :devil: :D

I saw a guy wearing #24 pushing Tractor Traylor off of the block. The same guy was also defending Z. Did that Harrison kid beat up Lil' Jon and steal his jersey?

Will Bender be playing in next years opener? Apparently he is having arthroscopic knee surgery on his right knee in the offseasson :rolleyes:
