What's up with Batum? Bill Simmons was saying rumors are this injury could be worse than 8-10 weeks, but he didn't have any details.
8-12 is the estimate. Torn UCL. But because he's not a pitcher he won't require Tommy John surgery. It should heal on it's own. Zach Lowe estimated he'll miss about 20 games.

I think it's Lebron's MVP to lose.

Anthony Davis is my dark horse for scoring champ, but I think it will be Lebron or Kyrie.

Simmons is my ROY pick.

Aldridge extension good for the Spurs? I love Aldridge but it didn't seem like a good fit.
Yeah, they were trying to get rid of him for a late lottery pick, I thought. It's weird to pay a guy $24M per year if you think he's only worth a #10 pick (and nobody was buying him at that price). I know salaries are crazy now, but the cap is reversing.

The Jazz cut Joel Bolomboy after his rookie year. He got 52 minutes, had 22 points, 17 rebounds, and 2 blocks shooting 56%. He also averaged 17 and 13 in the NBDL. What more do you have to do to get playing time? Honestly, what more could you ask from a PF in his first 52 minutes in the league?

We are paying almost 3x more for Udoh who already flunked out of the NBA and has proven for the last 8 years that he doesn't belong. Makes no sense.

Evidently Portis and Mirotic got in an altercation in practice today, that resulted in Mirotic ending up in the hospital.
I read a link that said it was a shoving match and Portis hit him in the face with a cheapshot. ***** move.

But it's not the first time a Bull punched another one at practice.
