I agree blue looks better. Looks like they'll be running curry as the 2 guard

Probably start rose/curry/george/faried/davis

Basically when stars get on the older side they don't want to over-exert for the world championships. Also people with injury concern will drop out. Still plenty of stars to go around so it's not quite a B team but kind of an A-/B+ team

That's a bone injury through and through. Highly doubt there's any ligament damage at all. The funny thing about bone injuries is they look 10x more gruesome so everyone assumes they're way worse, but from a recovery standpoint you take a bone injury over a ligament injury every single time. Bone injuries are relatively easy to operate on and have far shorter recovery times. If George tore his ACL he'd be looking at an entire season out guaranteed. I'll bet you this is only a few months, and it's good it happened now because there's still some time till the season.

This is true. He will be walking within a couple days from now. But the initial shock of seeing i makes it look worse than it really is. As long as he has confidence on his leg, he could be back by all star break.

This... Sports misc doctors are surprisingly unqualified.

I think it's hard to make an immediate call like this just based on the one replay we've seen. Without actual x-rays and a legitimate diagnosis you have no idea how severe the injury is, and every case is different. He could make a full recovery in a few months, or 8 months, or his career could be in jeopardy. You just can't know immediately

Well if there's anything that we do know it's that he won't be walking in a few days... From what I'm reading it seems like 8-10 months is pretty standard for these kinds of fractures. Not sure how true that is, but I really do hope he can return to all star form.
