It's sounding like indeed Collin's hamstring has been bothering him and in this case it flared up to the point they decided to sit him.

So, it probably won't have a chance to fully heal until the off-season.

He's been able to keep his level of play pretty high, but perhaps it's contributing to throwing his 3pt shot off?

Garland, otoh, twisted his ankle badly in the game. We'll have to wait on the MRI's, but hopefully it wasn't a high-ankle sprain.

I think they decided to bench Sexton for a number of reasons like seeing who else they have that can step up in his absence and give Delly and BT some run for awhile. DG rolled his ankle pretty much the same way Kabengele did and Kabengele played so yeah I think they held him out and DG could have played as well but they didnt want him out there.

Yep, and that's with our defense trying to focus on slowing him down.

What we let Gary Trent do seemed even more egregious.

NOPE This is me calling DG soft compared to Kabengele but its probably just Kabengele needs a job and DG is overpaid or something simple, and if Sexton is actually nursing the groin still and played through it for a long ass time he is drinking the kool aid that the team can win a play in game and needs to sit out the rest of the season

I'd never assume such a thing. Not when they sell for $99 on eBay.

Which the Fi or the Garlyman lol
You would have better luck predicting the lottery than you would understanding the minds of NBA players when it comes to
getting on the court. DG stands to get himself completely fd if he goes out there hurt and makes it worse to the point he is unable to finish the season clearly his priority is his next contract. Kabengele obviously needs to fight through it or he might not get another shot to bet on himself but he didnt have to play either.
There is no way Sexton is sitting out without being held out.
