            So, looking at the sked, I think Kawhi sits 2 more games. We have 13 left, 1 b2b

            Lakers Thurs - play
            Pistons Sun - play
            Knicks Mon - load management.

            Interesting schedule note: after this final back to back coming up Sunday/Monday, we play off day-game-off day-game alternating until the end of the season. So, not a hard schedule, but no real breaks either.

            10 games left at that point. 2 straight vs Thunder next Wednesday and Friday he won't want to miss. then a a poo poo platter of Bulls-Knicks-Bulls. Kawhi will sit one of those games I think, either the road knicks or the road bulls. To me if he sits the 2nd chicago game he doesnt have to travel there, and not a lot of travel after that. After the poo poo platter 3 we have 5 games left, all 5 are against fringe playoff teams/borderline .500 teams. I call this "the 5 mediocres" He should play all 5 to finish.
            This would be truly shocking.

            I'd bet he gets at least one of the final 5 games off, and doesn't play 4 straight. He's been pretty consistently sitting every 3rd or 4th game. Missing two games of 13 would be quite a swing off that ratio. More likely he misses 3 or 4.

            Plus in those final 5 games, Raps have a chance to game the standings a bit if they have a preferred first round opponent by resting guys for a specific game or two. Not that I'd advocate for them doing so, but given their propensity for resting Kawhi anyway, it's likely tempting for them.

              Yeah, but we have a better record when Kawhi sits, so we play him or sit him if we're trying to lose a game? lol. It seems like Lowry tries extra hard in those non-Kawhi games. Probably have to sit both Lowry and Kawhi, and maybe one of Pascal and Danny if you want a surefire loss.

                  Not only did we get a spanked by a bottom feeder in a meaningless game, but Serge got in a fist fight, Lowry and Green both got banged up. My god, this is why we say get to the playoffs. It's like walking through a minefield to get there in good shape.

                  Good news on Fred though, we could use the depth for Kyle's sake desperately

                            This is why I don't get why you were against resting Kyle.

                            I don't even want him playing vs the Lakers on a sore ankle. The last thing we need is for him to aggravate it or overcompensate in some way and get more seriously injured.

                            We are not fighting for a playoff spot. It's risk prevention time.

                              I think if FVV was healthy, I think Kyle could rest, but still I agree with you. If they're publicly saying guys are hurt, then there's no point. We are pretty deeply entrenched in that 2nd spot.
