"Initial exam suggests likely torn ACL for Denver's Danilo Gallinari, source tells Y! "Ligament was loose," source says. MRI Friday."
from Woj, ouch, that's a tough injury so close to the playoffs. Also that comment from the source just makes me shudder
Terrible news. Nuggets can recover, but its clearly not ideal.
Need a healthy Lawson, first and foremost. Gallo can be 'replaced' (I hate writing this since he is a great player and hopefully isn't done) by Wilson Chandler, who (imo) is better. The trick will be replacing Wilson Chandlers role off the bench. Corey Brewer will need to step along with Evan Fournier (and maybe one of Anthony Randolph and Jordan Hamilton).
Javale McGee will need to blossom if we are going to be conteders.
Hadn't been watching very closely the NBA season this year but jeez
The East is still garbage ,, 8th seed wont even be above .500
Heat should walk thru the East on way to finals
I don't remember the last time the 8th seed had a better record than the one from the West. Probably way back in the Bulls era. It's been so long now. I don't know why the East continues to be inferior.
