Man if you don't know who Triple J is by now that's on you... 

Something did change though - which coincides with his spike in production: Steve Clifford. Vogel wanted to play through Fournier and Gordon which is why the former had a career year and Aaron go

What do you guys think the estimated timeline will be?

 

I’m saying 4-6 weeks honestly. It looked pretty bad and the fact they’re gonna get an MRI to figure out the extent of the damage doesn’t sound too good.

X-Rays negative unfortunately don't tell us anything except that he didn't break it or dislocate it.

If it's a Grade-2 sprain or worse, he could be looking at a 1-2 week absence, possibly even 3-4 week absence if it's bad.

 

And for those wondering who the pickup is. It's Khem Birch.

His Per-36 last season: 60.0 FG%, 13 PPG / 10 REB / 1.6 BLKS

He likely won't ever get more than 25 minutes a night, but he's a great pickup for anyone looking for great FG%, about 10 PPG / 7 REB and 1-2 blocks

If you're a ball player, you know that with ankle injuries, its always about whether or not you can put weight on it right after it got injured.

 

You can walk through Grade 1 sprains and would typicall heal in couple of weeks

 

Grade 2 sprains will be very hard to walk with and would cost you at least a month

Nikola Vucevic (right ankle sprain) will miss at least the next four weeks of action.

Vucevic was spotted leaving Wednesday's game on crutches and in a walking boot, so we knew that he was going to be looking at a long-term absence here. If he is able to return around the four-week mark, that would have him back in action on December 18, which would be the mid-point of a four-game road trip for Orlando; although it wouldn't be surprising to see his absence extend beyond that four-week window. Mo Bamba and Khem Birch will pick up the slack in his absence, and it'll be interesting to see if Bamba's minutes restrictions are lifted.
