    Why would there be an update? They said he had a bruised knee. As far as I know, talk about him needing further tests was just speculation. If he just has a bruise, then the thing that would determine whether he can go tomorrow would be how it feels and how that impedes him. They won't know that...

    Most of those guys weren't regarded for their production. They were regarded for their potential. Seriously man, you're missing the script. Why do you think listing a bunch of freshman who were hyped but busted argues against picking a 23-year-old that was anti-hyped because folks assumed he had a...

    You're not helping your case. "Sometimes players bust" -- we know that. Sometimes players don't live up to their potential, and sometimes even if they do it ends up not being worth it. I didn't say Clarke should've gone in the top three or even top 10. But the Spurs drafted at 19. He was easily...

    Not really though. Most players are in their physical prime in their mid to late 20s. Like yes, Clarke could get some degenerative condition that saps his muscles at a young age. But it's completely reasonable to assume that he'll follow everyone else's curve. That is not the same thing as saying...

    K Crazy. It's not hard to see when that fifth-year senior was pretty clearly the second-best player in college that year. Sometimes you just outthink yourself and try to zag when you shoulda just gone straight.

    That's not the way it works. When Sam is 23, Clarke with be 27, and four years of Spurs seasons will have gone by. That's a lot of opportunity cost, and that ignores that Brandon will be in his physical prime. Age really isn't all that important. Wiggins is still younger than Derrick White. I get...

    I get that you're the edgy Pro-Spurs fan, but I think you should look at what I'm saying rather than looking for a place to get a shot in. A 12/6 rookie is actually really good, especially for one who isn't starting and getting tons of touches. To put it into perspective, his TS% is higher than any...

    You don't overpay for Poeltl to keep from losing an asset. That's sunk cost. He's good enough to be on the team, and I'd be okay re-signing him. But his RFA status and overall meh-ness makes him one of the lowest priorities in the off-season for me. I think if White can develop more of a killer...

    I just don't think that's an opinion. They don't work that way. Their defining move was drafting a center when they already had a HoF center. They literally don't care about that and are perfectly happy to play guys out of position if need be. They'd be much more inclined to draft Wiseman and start...

    I don't agree. Walker's best quality is that he can score from angles most players can't. He could stand to take contact better, but he shouldn't be trying to be Westbrook. Using the backboard is fine and smart (since goal-tending rules still exist and all that), but he has to get better at making...

    I think they know talent trumps all. Just with Murray, Walker and even White wouldn't stop the Spurs from drafting an elite guard, the Spurs will draft Wiseman without considering Poeltl. That's even more true given that Jakob will stilll be a free agent when the draft happens and could end up...

    Don't think it was precautionary. He asked out. I think it's possible there were two different injuries rather than just one that was exacerbated. But at the same time, as I said, they showed him walking unassisted after being seen by the trainer. That doesn't suggest a serious injury. Even though...

    It sucks that conservatives and liberals are so comfortable being arm-in-arm right now. I understand it though.

    I think they lacked composure in large part because White's injury. But they also had to deal with the pressure of a must-win game combined with the way the calls were going or seeming to go at the time. I don't think it's simply a matter of missing White.

    Really like Isaac as a player. But he hasn't lived up to his potential, in large part because this isn't close to his first injury.

    I think people are overstating the way the team struggled when White went out. The Spurs gave up their first-quarter lead with White the game. They kept missing shots for long stretches. White missed a couple but Walker just go so freaking unlucky on so many of his attempts. Dude should've had 15...

    I think the play-making will be fine as Walker, Johnson and White continue to grow. I'd like for the team to get another PG to actually run the second unit, but they don't need to draft such a player. I also think having a guy like Toppin will open up play-making for other players because he's...

    At this point, Sam pretty much has to be a legit All-Star to make him the better pick than Clarke. Brandon's already a good NBA-caliber rotation player and still have room to improve. I'm obviously hoping Luka makes that jump, but there's something to be said about just picking guys who are good...

    If the Blazers lose today, the Spurs would control their own destiny. Portland can't tie with SA, and even though Phoenix can, the Spurs should own the tie-break over them. Memphis has to lose out, though, because even if they split and the Spurs win (and Portland loses a game), the Grizz would...

    I don't think they'd let him walk out of the stadium if they think he tore his ACL. You certain CAN walk with a torn ligament, but they usually want you to keep weight off it because the lack of stability can lead to further injuries.

    It's not about news. It's about the fact that they don't call tears contusions. They're two different types of injuries. If you were like, "I think it's an ACL", then I wouldn't had an issue, because the way White reacted seems like he knows something bad happened. This game is too important for...

    Bro, do you know what a contusion is? You don't actually need an MRI to tell the difference between a bruise and tearing ligament. Now he might have both, but no, they don't by default call ligament tears contusions pending MRIs.

    They're saying contusion because he has a bruised knee. It it was something like a meniscus or ACL, they would just call it an injury.

    Well that's good. If White just banged knees, he'll probably play at least by Thursday.

    Walker's gotta make some of those. Every little bit of contact is making him miss. Teams will eventually stop reacting as much to his drives if he can't become a consistent finisher from that distance.
