Brandon Ingram’s MRI revealed a left groin strain. He’ll be re-evaluated in a week.

 

 

Better safe than sorry.

 

Heat and rest along with light stretching (in a couple of days).  He'll be fine.

Yeah, no.  Kuzma is doing exactly what he wants: shoot.  Defensively, he's not even in our top 5.  As long as he shoots well, he's good for us.  When he struggles scoring...

Playoffs are highly unlikely so there is no reason to play the kid early

Kuz is forcing shots, he stopped going to the basket.

Yeah, I got it.  I was pointing out that the only capacity Kuzma fills in is offense.  Defense needs a lot of work to get where ne needs to be.

Not sure you're getting what I'm saying.  Kuzma is the closest thing we have to a selfish player out there on the court.  Most of our guys don't mind sharing and have embraced the new culture.  Kuzma is still trying to play like it's summer league.

 

I don't mind what he's doing on the offensive end...as long as you're open, it's always been my motto that it's a good shot if you can make that shot.  Problem with Kuzma is he thinks he can make every shot and he misses opportunities to make the pass that leads to the pass.  He sees only one move ahead.

 

That wouldn't be as much of a problem if his entire game didn't depend on how well he's playing offensively.  His defense suffers when his shot is off and he is much more engaged defensively when he's on.

We needed him to do something out there at SF in BIs absence.
That's the end of it.
I don’t need you to break down who Kuzma is for me, twice.

I ignored the obvious.  Maybe I shouldn't have.  It's kinda crazy to say "we need him to do something when he's on the court" and not explain what.

 

So I broke down what he does and doesn't do for us because there was no way you were throwing out such an obvious statement (Kuzma needs to do something) as opinion...that wouldn't make sense, right?

Why don’t you just tell me what Kuzma does again.
That would make sense

Oh no...how about I just tell you he needs to "help us" when he's on the court...that would be informative, right?  LOL...
