    HA well hope he's had enough recovery time by now! A gr8 situation in some ways, this pandemic offseason



    Wow. I knew he was good, and I've watched lots of Raps ball but seeing it all together like that... wow. Just wow. Who cares about Serge, sry tbh. Like sign both if possible but damn. Who knew MG was the key to unlocking Freddy boy?!?! Srsly who even needs Giannis at this point. We're already gr8. I mean take him if he's there but DAMn.
    The problem is in the playoffs when the opposition backs off Gasol, leaves him open and he won't shoot. Same thing with Lowry. That's when you need Kawhi.

    Just read this: "Of all muscle injuries, hamstrings have one of the highest recurrence rates, happening in an estimated range of between 12 per cent and 33 per cent of cases, according to a 2017 study." And this: "Prior (hamstring) strains make an athlete 2.1 times more likely to re-injure themselves, according to a 2012 study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, and recovery time following re-injury is often longer than what’s needed the first time around."

    Not what you want to hear, but this is probably why they are being conservative.

    I think that number is taken out of context from Nick. He basically said Gasol could play now but they are being super cautious with his leg because he re-aggravated it once already. Then said they would only be concerned about the timing of getting him back to get him enough reps to get in shape before the playoffs. Basically he'll come back when he's healthy and only in that final stretch would they start to even consider risking him playing at 95% health because at that point there is a rust cost to the rest.

    There was a follow up question about how many games Nick thought players needed to really get in rhythm before the playoffs and that's where he gave the 8-12 game number. It was not a prediction for Gasol.
    Okay this made me feel much better. I thought he had some sort of setback or something from all the comments I've been seeing.

    We dont have that go to 2nd scorer everybody wants, but now with gasol, siakam, Ibaka and Lowry we have 4 "third scorer types" that on any given night can go off for well over 20 pts and be that 2nd guy.
    Just reread this post from last year, and thought we could legitimately rephrase it. Keon was demonstrating second sight here.

    "we don't have that go to a 1st scorer that everybody wants, but now with Siakam & Ibaka and we have 2 "second scorers and with Lowry, Fred and Gasol we have 2 "third scorer types" that on any given night can go off for well over 20 pts."

    How many games over the last 20 have the Raptors had multiple double digit scorers, or even 20 point scorers? How many times have they had undrafted players score 20 or more points?

    Bet on yourself.

    When will The Spaniard..come back..the ball movement and defense is just in different level when he plays, I believe it's just load management 😉..he will be back soon.

    If he's healthy and ready to go then it would be great to get him back into game shape then shut him down for rest prior to playoffs. Possibly even hold off on starting him until the playoffs.
    Their last few games are mostly against cupcakes but playoff positioning may come into play as well.

    Looking ahead, March 14th against the Pistons is their first game back from Raps' last western conference swing. Would be very tempting to rest him until then. That's 18 games left in the season.

    Gasol might be our most important player in the playoffs, and that's with no exaggeration. No one else on the team can replicate his impact. I trust Nick and the med staff to load manage him as long as they want
    The problem isn't his impact when he's playing. It's that he may not play for large chunks of time if they bring him back next season. And if they do bring him back I believe they need to let Ibaka walk or else impact cap space for the year of Giannis' is a free agent.. So you're looking at possibly being much weaker at C.

    Yeah, I wouldn't expect to see Marc back until those 8-12 games before the playoffs. He's officially getting the Shaq treatment LOL. Hope Ibaka is able to get some rest going into the playoffs because he's going to get see a lot of time on the floor until the end or seeding is locked up.

    Signing Gasol on an overpay for next season is going to be a tough call if he's going to keep missing long stretches like this.

    I can't imagine an easier call. Obviously you re-sign him if you can get him on a one year deal.

    Easy call, since we'll be going for the 3 Peat.
