Yeah, he was clearly gassed with no legs the other night and it was very noticeable. We're getting ready to hit the roughest stretch of our schedule. At this point, I'd consider DNP-CD'ing him for a few games just to rest his body and mind. He could possibly benefit from seeing the game from the bench as it happens rather than game tape after the fact. I'm just afraid of playing through fatigue leading to unnecessary injuries that can thwart his career permanently. It's a big leap he's made from Europe to the NBA and now from being second fiddle to Melo to being the #1 option night in and night out. Teams are coming hard at him. A little time off can help him regroup. Meanwhile, start Willy in his stead. We'd be soft on the interior with a Kanter/Willy front court, but we'd gobble up rebounds on both offense and defense like nobody's business.

So let's just ignore the warning signs because he was supposed to prepare for this grind over the summer? Got it.

I really dont get why they force KP play? He have 0 impact on the court. Give him a rest, no point to make him suffer. And make us suffer. He can get an injury like this.

I don't understand how Porzingis is posting up behind the defender on almost every play. The coaches don't see this and try to correct it??

You can tell what this team is missing...It's a PG who can get into the paint and attack the defense. Jack tries as much as he can but that's not his game. He's a pick and pop passer. Frank looking like his ceiling will be Anthony Roberson. Glue guys have really out performed where they are supposed to be. I'll keep saying this. Not having Hardaway is killing the team. They need him back. KP is trying to do it all but he can't. Good effort but not enough as the season fades away.
No longer sick and tired that Kurt wasn't hired.

Indeed we have 2 turtle point guards who can't break down any defense to save our lives. For the love of God please cut sessions and bring in Burke and hope Tim comes back asap
