Does anyone think the league will shut down for a few weeks? It might not be a bad idea.

I watched the 2nd half and they made it a good game despite missing so many bodies. But, the Bulls had not played in a week and were also missing like 5 players.

At least they got Ariza back.

DeRozan had a monster game for the Bulls.

I have faith in Silver but part of me wonders if they don't just give in like the NFL did and only test if symptomatic.

A lot of G leaguers and Free agents are getting signed. The NBA and the Union are allowing teams to sign extra bodies to replace people out due to health and safety protocols.

The most shocking thing about that picture is remembering that Barkley wasn't an all american. And also knowing that every true Trailblazers fan winces when they see this. Also where is Ewing? Which All American team is this?

The 1984 draft where most of these guys were taken was one of the all time best, with '85 being no slouch as well. Then the cursed '86 draft happened...

How long will fans want to pay top dollar for NBA games with G league replacements. That is the question.

Ernie Johnson and Charles Barkley are in health and safety protocols and won't be on TNT's NBA show.

Candace Parker and Kevin Frazier from ET are filling in.

LeBron hurt his ankle bad. He will likely be out for weeks.

Ugly game tonight. And I thought the 2020-21 season was a struggle.

He was interviewed in postgame last night and said he’ll be ready the next game.

Yeah I should have amended my post. Every time I've seen LeBron writhe in pain previously, it's been a pretty serious injury.

THT: 31:23 minutes, 1/13 FG, 0/8 3pt, 1/2 FT, 3 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist

I'm actually kind of surprised they leaned on him so much when Anthony was healthy, because that's about as dreadful a line as I can imagine playing over 30 minutes in a game.

IT also played 25 minutes coming straight from the g league, and shot 1/11, 0/6.

Fizdale’s hands were tied with the limited bodies he has. With the changing lineups, injuries, Covid protocols, they simply cannot get on any kind of consistency going. I thought the big win against Dallas last week was a sign of something good to come, then boom Covid strikes.

I get it, but THT at least is supposed to be like a young building block for them, and with Anthony out I expected him to get some run even without everyone else being impacted by COVID. They basically decided to keep him and not Caruso before this season. It was only one night but that was not pretty.

I like how they mention he was a free agent.

Wonder if he was who Doc Rivers was talking about the other day.

Ah, Melo got ejected, no wonder THT got so much run.
