I know we need Odom but what can WE do? When Chauncey and Hill get back I think Negro will play Hill at the 4 like he did a little in the preseason! I don't know how Odom expected to return to the 2010 form when he didn't even practice in the summer! If anything he's regressed!

I totally agree at the moment. Just because he has the title "franchise player" doesn't give him a free pass. The only game he looked good in was against the Spurs, other than that, he wasn't the same BG. I know he has a bad elbow and I'm happy to see BG try to play through an injury but the point of playing through an injury is to play close to norm. Fact is; Blake has been somewhat of a liability and if his elbow is effecting him and the Clippers that much, he needs to sit out for about a week. It's better he sits out now than if he aggravates it later and has to sit out longer in a more crucial part of the season... Right now based on performance our top players have been Paul, Crawford, DJ and Bledsoe ahead of BG. Don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on Blake. He needs to sit out and come back healthy. A healthy Blake is unstoppable.

Who would u put in for Blake? Odom? Turiaf? Turiaf is old and a little injury prone which is why we save him usually for the 3rd quarter, Odom still not good! I wish we had Thomkins and just watch him fire away from the preimeter! > Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_04 Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_04 Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_04 Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_04

Odom or Turiaf stsrting for a week now is better than Blake aggravating his elbow even more in Dec or Jan and forcing Odom or Turiaf to start for about a month at a time we need to keep the momentum moving forward.

^ From what I understand of his injury, it's painful but not in any way degenerative... as in he can't "make it worse".

If Blake is OK playing through pain, I'm OK with it too. He draws so much attention that just his presence on the court opens things up for our team.

His elbow is filled with fluid, It's not like he can get more fluid, it's not of those things where you aggravate the muscle/tendon or bone!
