Wiseman is shooting better on 3's than 2's so far. Not sure, what going on in GS. Should be easy enough to get easy shots for an athletic 7footer.

Edwards continues to be high-volume and ineffecient like his back-court mate D'Angelo Russell. They've now lost 4 in a row.

Ball is looking better, albeit he's not starting.

Haliburton has been getting a lot of hype, but he too isn't starting.

Patrick Williams hasn't matched what he did in his first game.

Hopefully Okongwu and Okoro will play soon.

Reportedly Nesmith has struggled to figure out where he's supposed to be on the floor and his 3pt shot isn't falling, so Boston has few minutes for him. Having drafted and wasted 2 picks on Danny Green and Joe Harris, I suppose there is an art to developing a player like that on a winning teams. Heck, Jason Kapono led the Cavs in 3pt shooting as a rook and we still couldn't find him minutes and didn't bother to protect him in the expansion draft. Those guys all had a lot more NCAA experience too.

yeah iot's way too early to get into draft grades imo but Wiseman getting starter minutes on the Warriors is pretty telling imo of what they think of him going forward.
Edwards is what he is and it obviously is transferring but hell thats what they expected from him a player who can get his own shot and defend
There are no valid legal arguments that people have any right to not wear masks in public at this point. Being asymptomatic or unaware if you are positive, does not make you exempt from any obligations to ensure society is free from your germs.
