    Default So..... guess who's hurt?

    And no, not Bender.

    But Tinsley has a bad lower back, and Pollard has a calf problem.

    We have no centers, so say hello to Samaki "I'm the 15th man" Walker.

    Tinsley already having trouble is not a good sign.

    Is this team really just not meant to succeed? I mean this could all blow over in a month, but I mean here we are two games in and already Ron did/said something stupid, and now we're getting injuries scattered across the roster again.

    I'm with you on this. I was going to start a thread on this subject.

    What's more important, really good players that say injury free, or great players that are always injured? This is just another reason we'll miss DD and JJ. (not to mention #31) What's up with Tinsley? Injured again? Jeez. What about Harrison? Injured. I could go on, but I won't....

    I wonder sometimes with Tinsely if the reason for all his Injuries is because he just isn't in that great of shape. In college where you only play 20 games a season its not too hard on the body but when you have to play 82 some bodies just won't hold up, either because of condition or just body type.

    We went through 10 years of the 90's where we were relatively injury free. I don't think we can complain or claim we are cursed. It happens. Give the guys a few days for their bodies to adjust. Playing a pickup basketball game, let alone an NBA game, you are doing damage to all kinds of muscles, joints, and vessels. Its not a low impact type of game. Give these guys some time to recover. I don't think you can fairly assess any damage at this point, two games into the preseason. Athletes as these guys are, nothing quite simulates a game situation and the stress the body is under during the game. These guys haven't played a true game since May-June. So give them time. Don't start writing people off just yet.

    the injuries are frustating as hell. but let's be realistic these guys don't want to be hurt. if they are hurt they are hurt, it's just something that happens. as far as we know no one is going to be out an extended period of time.

    I never assume it's because they're pussies or anything like that, I'm just sick of it happening like this. My positive energy was rallied around the idea that this year was going to be different than last year, but so far it's been deja vu.

    On the lighter side of it, the injuries will allow for some playing time for the guys that are least likely to get it. This will make them play hard to earn time while they have the chance. For this reason, I'm not worried. Let them heal, and don't rush them back.

    Each and every person would be hurt in this forum after playing only 10-12 minutes of NBA caliber basketball. Its not easy. We're two games in. Relax people. It takes time to condition. Relax.

    Ron Artest plays basketball and takes a few bad shots and its stupid. Jermaine goes 9 for 30 and its okay. Dont worry people on here just love to find things to hate on Ron for.

    So because a bunch of average people in real life wouldn't physically cut it in the NBA, I'm supposed to rest easy that for the second preseason in a row we're becoming a hospital?

    I think we should close this thread before the basketball gods decide to punish us more.



    We have Harrison,Foster,Pollard as the most concerning injuries.

    With Tinsley, Granger, O'Neal with the less concerning injuries.

    I'd say the bottom players will be fine, our major concerns now should be shifting to the Center position.

    You defenders are experts at missing the point. I don't give a damn about his stat line. Rick said he didn't play within the team's offense, and he's spending his time off the court talking about how he hasn't changed a bit, and basically implying he's still going to leap before he looks. That's what's stupid.

    Well right now these players in some sense are "average people". Their bodies simply aren't conditioned to playing basketball quite yet. It happens. Give you an example. If you were a writer, and you sit and write stories all day, well your hand gets used to writing all day. It doesn't cramp up. But then the writer goes on vacation for three months. He can't get back to writing every day when he comes back without expecting some cramps again. Its how the process of muscle building and tearing down works.

    That's not a great analogy because this isn't happening to every NBA team. I don't see the Piston's big men all going down. Or their starting PG. I could say the same for a lot of teams right now.

    I think the most concerning part is that the people getting these early injuries are the ones who always seem to get the late in the season injuries as well...
