Artest, Bibby to return Wednesday

Ron Artest is now saying that he, along with Mike Bibby, will return to action from elbow surgery on Wednesday against the Raptors.

I saw him shooting with nothing but his left hand at the open practice but it says today that he shot with his right hand, OH HAPPY DAY!!

Must be true, if it's a rumor you read on Hoopshype.

I will believe it when I see it. Honestly, I would rather Artest waited and made sure he was fully healed from surgery rather an come back early and mess things up by trying to do too much. It won't hurt anything if he waits another week.
This space needs to be filled with a new sig...but I'm too lazy to make one.

Two weeks, it's just arthroscopic of an elbow to remove a few bone fragments, not very invasive at all. Theus' originally thought 2 weeks, and its exactly 2 weeks. It really shouldn't be a big deal.

We should let them adjust for a few games and get used to Theus' system...Especially Bibby... If we starting to click early, we could be a dangerous team IMO....

Great news for the ones who still think the Kings have any chance of making the playoffs, i think its difficult but can happen. u need definitely a trade, cause francisco garcia, udrih and salmons too good for the bench, maybe exchange one of them or bibby/artest for a big man.

Let the smallball begin! Be interesting to see what kind of damage we can do to our draft pick this year, haha.

Yeah, we played a smallball lineup against an ELITE team like the Mavs and looked what we did to them...We scored at WILL and made defensive stops when needed....(Except that Harris 3 lol)

To be fair, small ball historically works well against Dallas, mostly because perimeter guys can contain Dirk just as well as big guys. But heck, I'd be fine with it in the regular season regardless.

Yeah, true. But yeah, I will be fine if we use the small ball lineup into our advantage....

There are advantages for sure, but we also played the same basic lineup in the last game. Hey if we are trying to win and score a bunch of points, like I said before, put John at PF even more than now, no PF can stop him. Now I can see why the Suns really wanted him!

Yeah! I noticed that Garcia was playing the PF position as well....I was laughing when Garcia tries to box out Dirk...

From the looks of it our main rotation when healthy is going to be: Bibby, Beno, Kevin, John, Cisco, Artest, Miller, and Moore off the bench or in more limited minutes than now. Artest may play more C than every before too. We'll see what happens.

Say bye bye to Douby, Hawes, and Justin for sure though.

Say what you will, but Garcia DID do a pretty good job on Dirk in the 4th quarter.

Dont take that way, I was just joking around...Garcia played Dirk good especially in the 4th quarter when needed...

I can't wait for this game. Got Bibby, Miller and Bosh for fantasy, should be a great game.
