Well, I hope rubio's back doesn't keep him down too much longer. The team is really going to need him

Ugh, this hurts. I really hope that Derrick can play well over this stretch to either become a good impact player for us, or to up his trade value. If rubio can come in and play well he and derrick have shown they have a good chemistry....hopefully we can still sneak into the playoffs.

Derrick Williams is a beast. Now is his time to shine.

It took him a while to get going tonight but it was a promising start, at least. Not sure he'll keep it up, though.

No, thanks. I'd rather not jeopardize our locker room.

That dude is toxic waste. No way in hell. We still need a scoring guard more anyway.

To be fair to Royce, it's hard to jeopardize a NBA locker room when you've never been in one.

He might jeopardize our laptops though.
By the power of the Dark Side, free Kevin Love!

One good game for Derrick tonight. I hope he can build on this.

Adelman is a great coach and he knows exactly how a coach is to respond to that. However I wonder if we could get for a Kevin Love if there is any coach more apt to turn pieces into wins. I like this guy a lot and I think we need to give him more depth to work with. Adelman needs players.

Love was one of the main reasons Adelman came here. I don't think it would sit too well with him to trade Love. Kahn definitely needs to get another player here though.

It wouldn't make sense to trade Love right now anyway. His value must be the lowest since his rookie season.

Last time, Love fracutred his third and fourth metacarpal.

I did some quick googling (Which automatically makes me an expert on the subject and i'm a qualified hand specialist, obviously) and I came across this:

These fractures must heal properly to maintain good hand mechanics. This is especially true of the second and third metacarpals (index and middle finger), which act as anchors for the others.


So the third and second metacarpals are basically what holds the hand together for smooth mechanics.

Any way Love tapes his middle finger to his index finger and wears that protective cast and still plays? Obviously he wouldn't be able to shoot 3s that much, but it keeps him in shape and he can still grab boards and be a hustle player.

I think you answered your own question.

He should be taking the full 8 weeks to heal this time.
