    I saw both FVV and Marc on the bench last night but did not see Serge. Is he travelling with the team?
    They said they all are with the team and Nick even said that all 3 would probably be back sometime over the road trip. I think serge is either working out in the back or scarf shopping

    Alright I don't enjoy piling on but saw this on reddit and it cracked me up: "Nurse explaining the McCaw minutes":

    Ibaka had sore right knee and might play against Warriors, Gasol is saying he is feeling better but no timeline, FVV was upgraded to questionable last game so maybe they'll play soon

    He went with a 7 man rotation last year? News to me. I think there was one single game where we shrunk to 7 players, one game in the Philly series. There was a solid 8 man rotation playing significant minutes throughout the entire playoffs otherwise. Lowry, Green, Leonard, Siakam, Gasol, Ibaka, Powell, VanVleet. All of them played in 23-24 games, and averaged at least 15 MPG.

    There will be an 8th guy in the playoffs. 7 is too few. Right now that guy is McCaw, from every sign we have. It shouldn't be. And maybe it won't be. But it would be nice to have an indication of that soon.
    FVV minutes in the Philly series were lower, but, it was definitely an eight man rotation. The Five starters with Serge, Norm and Fred off the bench.

    Looking at this years squad and assuming we are healthy, we have Kyle, Fred, OG, Pascal and Marc as the starting five. Then off the bench we have Norm, Serge and using last years rotation as a guide, Nurse would want another ball-handler / guard type for 8th guy. My guess is...PM?

    i mis-remembered i guess. i am getting up there. totally cut norm out of the rotation. i still feel like when it counted he wasn't playing much, averaged 11 mins in the finals.

    we're fucked i guess.

    Loved watching FVV guard curry in the finals would be funny if his first game back he had to deal with Fred hounding him all night.
    Also be interested in Wiggins success vs the raps traveled with him to California but or is that stayed back in minny.

    maybe in reg season? in a high stakes playoff series i would be surprised. he went with a 7 man rotation last year. hope the starters plus norm and serge are the only heavy-minute players come playoff time

    Even fully healthy, we are getting McCAW'd. Might as well get used to it.

    No game is going to be easy if we're still down Gasol, FVV and Ibaka
    ^^^This. Without these 3 everything is a dogfight. (Case in point the Hornets and Suns games)

    These zombie warriors have actually won two of their last three games, and beat Denver yesterday. I'm interested to see how quickly Curry is able to get back up to speed.
