Why wait all this time?

Lets hope for a full recovery for next season.

Do we get another big to replace him?....Boogie?

To your point, Stone, my initial question was the same. If he had gotten surgery when the injury happened, he would be healthy enough to contribute in this restart. Obviously hindsight is 20/20, and we didn't know at that time that we would still be playing regular season ball deep into the summer. But I have the same questions about Kyrie, and I wished we had gotten his surgery sooner as well. It sounds like we did the same thing with Nic, tried to let him rehab without surgery and wasted time instead of doing the right thing immediately.

For a replacement, I would love to see if DeMarcus cousins is healthy enough to go. If not, I was impressed with Amida Brimah last summer, and he knows our system.
