Good thread. Thanks for this Nyce. This should help separate the conversations between talking about the actual prospects and talking about the lottery odds.

He's been questionable the last couple games. They held out Rui too.

What a GREAT Monday!

Minnesota won, Detroit won, Cleveland won, Toronto won (albeit they beat the Wiz)... and Houston is in a tight game with Phoenix right now. Hopefully they pull of the W!
Markelle Fultz, Jalen Green, Chuma Okeke, Jonathan Isaac, Wendell Carter Jr.
Cole Anthony, RJ Hampton, Corey Kispert, Mo Bamba. LET'S GO!

The worst thing is we had a 2 game winning streak and on Wednesday, we are facing Washington and we are very likely to win

Do you want me to add the full remaining schedule for each team or just something shorter, like games for this week?

Could you put those schedules remaining for our competitors in spoilers (except the headers) maybe, to lessen the scrolling? Thanks.

Including tonight, Beal has missed 5 consecutive games.

They keep calling him a game-time decision, but it doesn't really sound like he's super close to playing.

It's definitely a race to the bottom.....if you go by their respective boards....Toronto is definitely tanking.....wizards are definitely tanking.....as are Detroit and Minnesota.....All that and we're getting everybody back it seems next game....everybody's healthy....it feels weird to be conflicted about that...it hurts my soul that i'm actually not entirely happy that everyone is healthy

Don't the Wolves owe their pick to the Warriors? Why would they be tanking? I think they're just that bad.
