If Ennis is out and Bacon is starter, then only 4 more games to be the leading starter.

Must lose game!

Sounds like they may be tired Monday night against the Pistons. 4 games in 6 nights, in 4 different cities.

Ennis' calf is sore. He should just shut it down. No sense in risking an Achilles injury.

I wouldn't mind Wagner back on a non-guaranteed league minimum deal next year.

He's not completely useless.

Chicago may tank the rest of the games, since Lavine and Vuc are both out now.

Some disgusting basketball being played by both teams right now
I still believe in Magic!
Okeke / Isaac / WCJ front court for the future.

I don't think so, would suck if it doesn't convey this year, but next year is also fine, very unlikely someone with current odds gets too 3/4 two years in a row.

Also getting WCJ and dumping Aminu still good right now.

It'll certainly make lotto night more nervy for sure!

I dont understand this PF/C combination. I think Wagner would fit well with WCJ and Hall with Bamba.

A Bamba and Wagner frontcourt gives you two outside shooting big without interior presence on offense. Hall and Bamba might work better. Hall brings the motor and toughness and allows Bamba to float outside.
