It also says Jamal practiced today and may play Wednesday, but Bledsoe is not looking so good.

Sucks. I hope we at least have Crawford. We need him badly. Looks like Bledsoe is seriously injured?

When we play the Knicks we will be forced to put Hill on Anthony and that's a great thing. If Melo isn't playing then I guess that's better.

More than anything we need to stop their 3 ball. The Knicks love chucking 3s.

I'm more worried about Bledsoe than I am about Crawford and Butler. He's a game changer and if he's not healthy and effective, they could be in big trouble.

I too am more worried about Bledsoe than I am Crawford or Butler. Crawford is simply pure offense, he doesn't really pass or do anything outside of shoot. Butler is really fading fast in his career but Bledsoe is one of the main reasons why we beat Memphis last year in the playoffs. With his expanded role and growth, he'll be looked upon more as we wind down the season and enter the playoffs.

What i again want to know is why bledsoe has been playin sporadically if this injury is truly this serious. He'd be back by now if they had just let him rest. I think having 2 of 3 out is still bad.

Or day-to-day, which usually means at least 1 month.

im feeling a little uneasy knowing that hill will have to play a whole lot of minutes. i like hill and he defends, but idk if he can play the minutes he will be required to play.

Hill has been equalling his great defense with terrible offense

He seems like he cant hit the ocean... his jumper iz straight broken

I want both bledsoe and crawford back healthy badly

Yeah I'm not so sure about Grant playing more than 20 minutes. His shot hasn't been the most reliable- he's been getting a lot of layup attempts blocked, so just not too much explosion/hop anymore for Grant. He still makes smart plays though, so he'll help overall. But yeah Matt is going to have to play big minutes. Lamar can fill in here and there as well at the 3. We can also go with a very small lineup CP3, Chauncey and Jamal together.

Agreed. Barnes can play big minutes. And with Jamal and billups together, the floor is spread the best.

The most troubling part is,,is this one week our time or Clipper time. As I have said before,,Clipper time is like reverse dog years,,one week is 3 in our time.
