    They are going to cut Oreo Cookies, and Rollie Pollie will make the team.

    Wouldn't an injured player be exempt from being cut or counting against the roster?

    You think ?

    I don't see him being cut just because of this , however if he was on the border, how can he improve his stock on the bench?

    Also now, you don't get a fair comparison of Greene vs Hunter and the others. Greene probably was going to make the team before this anyway, but it would have been nice to have everyone healthy and each player given the chance to beat the other out.

    I certainly want Rawle on this team, but I would prefer him to win the spot outright.

    Why Not Us ?

    I think Greene will make the roster. Pacers obviously liked what they saw from him last season while on the Celtics, so he'll make it

    I think that he will make it anyway. A broken finger will heal, and so you pick the best player.

    Also maybe he'll be healthy by the time Tins goes down!
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    I'd be shocked if it isn't Greene and Powell.

    I know Rawle is showing potential to be good, but why would we keep him when we got 4 other players that can do/play the same position better then him.

    Greene and Powell will be kept.

    I doubt they'll cut him just because of this. It was only a left pinky on a right-handed shooter. Should be 100% before Thanksgiving.

    Sounds like Greene has made the team

    Pacers training camp
    Broken finger puts Greene on sideline
    October 13, 2006


    Ordinarily, an injury to a player fighting for a roster spot would be regarded as a severe setback.

    Orien Greene, however, has made such a positive early impression with the Indiana Pacers that CEO Donnie Walsh encouraged him to take care of the fractured pinkie finger on his left hand rather than risk further damage.

    "We've seen enough," Walsh said he told Greene. "The right thing to do here is get your finger fixed."

    What Walsh and coach Rick Carlisle saw in Wednesday's preseason victory over New Jersey was Greene leading a fourth-quarter blitz that overcame a five-point deficit and resulted in a 103-89 victory.

    Greene -- claimed off waivers from Boston's roster in July -- had two points, two rebounds, five assists and two steals in the final period, when the Pacers outscored the Nets 30-11.

    Team officials couldn't detect when he suffered the injury. He did not attend practice Thursday, and is expected to be out about three weeks. The Pacers open the regular season Nov. 1.

    The Pacers have four other point guards in camp. Greene, however, appears secure.

    "We need depth at the point position, we need the ability to guard, the ability to bring in an athletic element and an element of tenacity," Carlisle said. "He's a good player offensively, too. He's got a good feel for the game. He's worked hard on his shooting.

    "We really like him; otherwise, we wouldn't have claimed him."


    Williams breaks in

    The progress of first-round draft pick Shawne Williams has been somewhat lost amid other stories surrounding the Pacers' training camp.

    The rookie, however, had a reasonably successful debut against the Nets, finishing with seven points, five rebounds and two blocked shots, with just one turnover, in 20 minutes.

    He was admittedly nervous in his six-minute appearance in the second quarter, but settled down quickly after converting a three-point play off a fast-break layup.

    "When I got that first bucket I came down (emotionally)," he said. "I was uptight at first. But I've been a hooper for so long, this is second nature to me."


    Daniels out, Edwards back

    Marquis Daniels, who sat out the second half of Wednesday's game, is out indefinitely with a sore hamstring.

    Daniels, who made a last-minute decision to play against the Nets, scored four points in four first-quarter minutes, then sat.

    "The good news is, it's not severe," Carlisle said. "We think he can get through this in a couple or three days if he gets rest and treatment."

    Center John Edwards, who had been out with a sore back, practiced for the first time Thursday and should be available for Saturday's preseason game against Utah at Conseco Fieldhouse.

    Christ... one preseason game and Greene breaks a finger, Daniels has a sore hammy. Let's wait for game 2 when Powell sneezes in the locker room and simultaneously ruptures his spleen while giving Tinsley the Flu.

    This is really why he's almost uncuttable anyway. He's the only above average perimeter defender we have aside from Danny, who can't guard the little quick guys, and Darryl Armstrong, who's 38 years old.

    Who cares if he broke his pinky. He's not here to score anyway.

    Daniels is really good defensively especially against smaller players.

    Reading the comments from Walsh tells me that Greene wanted to keep playing because he wanted to make sure he made the roster, but Walsh told him he's made the roster and to sit out and get his finger right.

    Right....Maybe if we didn't add 27 new players this summer I wouldn't forget about key players and possible startes.

    But probably it's just because I'm dumb.

    Regardless, we still need Orien's defense.
