    I take no joy in his injury.

    there was a lot of speculation that Zion would make his debut tomorrow vs the Jazz, but it's looking Jan 22 is the day.

    Eh, first game back and the Pelicans are 9 games below .500. What would be the point in taking the risk for one game?

    The pelicans are playing their best basketball of the season right now (sure- damning with faint praise) and could make a run for that last spot. A tall task in the West to be sure, but they can do it. Zion is going to have to be reintroduced to the court gradually. We won't see a ton of minutes for another month.

    yep, sucked for those of us watching, but ultimately the right decision. he was already way over what the number of minutes they wanted him to play.

    538 says the Pelicans are the favorites for the 8 seed. That won't be true if they keep losing games to other contenders. I would love to see a Pelicans/Lakers first round series.

    I get why they did it, but the reality is the risk of injury in those final 4 minutes was no different than the risk of injury in any 4 minutes that he plays next game.

    You sure about that? Maybe that's true for a player in optimal shape, but for someone coming back from injury, there's such a thing as overuse.

    The Pelicans may be the favorite (a status they gained without Zion), but it won't help them if Zion goes down in his first week back because they are trying to force the issue.

    Well, if they let him play and he got injured there would be hell to pay. From a CYA perspective, it was the right move.

    ha ha what? The risk of injury is always elevated with fatigue.

    What percentage do you think the risk elevated had he gotten a nice rest in the timeout and played the final four minutes of timeout and foul ridden NBA basketball?

    Who knows, but he is a big big man, who is out of shape, and coming off an injury. They should have a plan an stick with it....no matter what is going on in a meaningless Wednesday night regular season NBA game.

    Raptors and Spurs both run out the 24 second clock on their first two possessions in honor of Kobe. I'm a Laker hater and I'm shook by this.

    The spurs are apparently continuing to honor Kobe throughout the first quarter.

    This 4th quarter with the ELAM ending in effect has been highly entertaining.

    Bummer. Ends on a free throw. Oh well, still entertaining.

    That was the best All star game ever. It usually devolves into an alley-oop contest, but this one had them fully calling fouls and contesting every possession by the end.

    The first-to-score x format is good, but flawed in that it's difficult to manage minutes for the bench in that closing quarter. A certainly fresh and bored Rudy Gobert certainly could have affected the outcome in the 4th quarter where the starters were clearly sweaty as hell and fatigued... not to mention Donovan Mitchell's signature move is to take over 4th quarters...

    I've got a feeling the 2020 Bucks will go the way of the 1994 Expos.
