    At least a lot of that time will be during the all-star break. So good timing from that perspective. This team just can't stay healthy though.
    Fred is clearly very injury prone though. That's another good reason why having him be a floor spacer and secondary ball handler is good. Keep him out the paint trying to do too much lol
    I relish negativity and disappointment. It is not healthy. Somebody buy me a pony.

    Fred gets pounded trying to score at the rim, on what would be a routine layup for bigger or more athletic PGs.

    True enough. Gulp.

    ...

    Anyone know the play where he injured it? Missed the game.

    Maybe this was known to be coming and influenced Lin's decision..

    Alright. Fred is out of rotation. He'll be back like in March. We'll be rolling by then. Sour grapes.
    GASOLINE!!!

    Exactly. I don't know. With Lin coming I'm not as distraught about this injury. It doesn't seem to be a long term thing, it didn't need surgery and it will give him a chance to actually rest and heal his other injuries as well. He would not have taken time off otherwise knowing him. Also Lin now being the primary point guard and having to kind of run the team alone is good for him. It will help him get acclimated to the team quicker. I'll give fred 4 weeks to come back cause he's going to need to practice before playing an actual game just to make so there are no set backs. So if he can gets 2 weeks of games under his belt before the playoffs I think that should be good enough for him. Maybe I'm just being optimistic. I don't know

    Jv's was a pretty bad injury that needed surgery though. So I'm hoping he won't be out anywhere close to as long

    The team has been saying he has been banged up for like the last 2 months. So who know really the dude hits the ground hard under the rim about 3-5 times a game.

    Fred looks like he lost a step or something this season, last season his quickness got him to the basket with ease, this year it's like watching a 6 year old playing against his dad, you know a rejection is likely the outcome.

    No. JV was to be re-evaluated in 4 weeks., not back playing in 4.
    If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

    Man, I guess we’re never going to have a fully healthy team

    He hasn't lost anything. Fred wasn't on any opposing team's scouting report last year. After being nominated for 6MOTY, he is.

    I think they said they will be evaluating Fred after 3 weeks as well. Not 100% sure though

    Welp I was right they did say that. So let's hope it heals fully after the 3 weeks.

    Unfortunately he is 340th of 383 players in FG% in the restricted area (min 1 attempt/game) at 51.2%.

    But this is basically the same as last year: 354th of 394 players and 51.4%. He just doesn't have great size or finishing ability.

    Fred needs to study some JJ Barea film to work on his small man finishing at the rim skills. Barea was at 65%+ for the last few seasons until he got injured.

    The bench losing Siakam was huge. He broke down defences with his movement, size, and speed. And even with that the bench offence stagnated at times. Without him they've played uphill in quicksand all year (especially with CJ shooting 30%).
