Nobody cares to be honest, NBA doesn’t care, 2 negative tests, and you are back.
FYI, NFL changed it to 1 negative PCR test today because 24 rams players were out, I think the NBA will follow, but I doubt it makes much difference, just 24 hours

The difference is that we used the hardship exception which allows the team to exceed the 15 roster spots if they have at least 4 players who miss at least 2 weeks and at least 3 consecutive games.

Do we already have 4 players who have missed this many, or might we have to keep guys out to meet the minimum.

I think injuries count, so Ariza and Nunn would count towards the 4.

My Lineup prediction for tomorrow is:

Reaves-Rondo
Bazemore-IT
Ellington-Monk
LeBron-Melo
AD-DJ

Obviously can’t play that bench lineup together because that is a terrible Defensive lineup.

Finally, Westbrook misses a game. Thought the dude was gonna play 82 games or something. Only good thing I could say about him is that he's been very durable.

I don't know that we are catching any breaks if a bunch of our folks are in protocol too LOL

EDIT - well maybe it's even now lol


Taurean Prince has also been added to the list of Minnesota players entered into the league’s protocols.

Injuries do count. Howard and THT have missed one game, soon to be two. They were put on the list on the 13th or 14th, meaning they could return the 27th/28th.

I was just thinking how it’s sad for a team with Lebron and AD to be talking about catching a break

Just like with Dallas missing Luka lol.

Lakers shouldn’t feel sorry for anyone considering that we have been the most injury-bitten team so far this season with players missing weeks of game action, with that said I wanna see the Lakers smoke the T-Wolves tonight...

This is the first game without RW. It would be very comical to see us blow out the Twolves tonight...

P.S. I don't believe RW is the cause of our slow start. It is the defense and turnovers.

I posted in the injury thread that he is there with the team in Minnesota although it was unclear if he was going to be available for the game.

LOL

Ariza has been upgraded but they've already said he's not playing they only upgraded him so I guess they can meet the roster requirements on the bench.

Trevor Ariza has been upgraded to questionable to make his season debut tonight in Minnesota, per the Lakers.

This is the exaggeration with the fear mongering. “Shut everything down!” “Apocalypse!!”

The vaccine works. Wow! I guess this is how the young cats in the 1920s felt after getting flu shots in the next decade or two

Edit: I wouldn’t rule out Ant making a LGSRS. Come on NBA, tweak the rules…one negative test before game time. Don’t “LeBron” Ant!

I told you guys that all these players entering the protocols is a short term thing... if IT ends up playing well he will be a great depth guy off the bench and then you can put Rondo in the coaching role.
