More info on why OG has been out so long.  His appendix ruptured before his surgery and he also developed some infection complications so it was much more than a routine appendix removal.

Yikes good thing he went to a hospital probably be dead if not

Rockets made everyone available. Guess the narrative is they want LeBron? 

 

Lol, who structured Chris Paul's contract. That should be grounds for automatic termination. What a horrible deal

Warriors in 6. Think this will be a really good series. I've thought for a few years that Kawhi was a top 3 player in the league. I just think the Golden State is too good. I don't know the impact Durant will have but Curry, Green, and Thompson will step up. Think Iggy has a good series.

Who do you put on Kawhi and how do you defend him?

Raptors head coach Nick Nurse told reporters Thursday the 21-year-old is ruled out for Game 1 of the NBA Finals after being upgraded to questionable, but the plan is to activate him for Game 2 at Scotiabank Arena on Sunday, according to ESPN's Tim Bontemps.

Anunoby has yet to take the floor this postseason after undergoing an emergency appendectomy April 11. His appendix ruptured prior to having surgery which complicated his recovery.

Nurse stated earlier in the week Anunoby was "probably about 10 days away from playing."

The sophomore forward averaged seven points, 2.9 rebounds, and 0.7 assists in 20.2 minutes across 67 appearances this season.

They could sure use his defense

GS's lack of depth rearing its ugly head. No pity here.

Any team who is missing 2 or 3 starters (I believe Looney started a few games) and have other players banged up would look pedestrian.

GSW has to take the physicality to the Raptors to start game 4.

Lowry has moved onto my All Annoying All NBA team with Paul and Harden. The “tough until not” style of play is rather cheap. I don’t know how you jump into a player moving sideline to sideline, who is probably 20 pounds lighter, and flopping like you’ve been sniped is a charge. The begging for the ref to give an opponent a tech is petty too.

I’m shocked Green didn’t pick up a tech or fined. He was cussing out refs left and right in the second half.

My point is more that when you use all of your cap space to fill out your starting 5 with superstars, the downside is your bench is going to be bad. So if injuries hit, you're toast. They hardly have any bench players who would even be in other team's rotations.

EG selected as one of 20 players to participate in the 2019 Team USA Camp. The group of 20 players will be refined as the team prepares for the 2019 FIBA Basketball World cup hosted in China.
