Psh, that has nothing on my league: * Mandatory weekly blood tests to ensure managers have optimal levels of electrolytes and red blood cells * Owners must pass a rigourous obstacle course (

When I die, I want Derrick White to lower me into my grave. Just so that he can let me down one last time 😭

out 4-6 weeks

 

Hmm, from the date he got hurt and was diagnosed I guess.  So 3-5 weeks?

Patiently awaiting his return and interested to see how he fits into the current version of the team.

Perfect hold in your IL. When he comes back, he will pick up right where he left off.

Meantime, you have an extra streaming spot to go trolling through the wire.

What do you think his numbers will be in these new Spurs after he is up to speed?

I am thinking he's pushing Lonny Walker back to the bench and is a definite upgrade.

 

Depends on what DeRozan's and Dejounte's output will be. The latter didn't perform well in the bubble, so Derrick had to take over. That trend has not continued. I expect Derrick to put up around 14/4/4/1stl/1blk. Pop's rotations will be interesting, though. The bench has been carrying them through a lot of games, and he'll be wary of messing up their chemistry. So, either Lonnie steps down into the second unit or Derrick turns into Manu v2.0

either way white is getting 30+ mins that's all that matters, his defensive stats alone make him valuable for a guard and could be top 50 per game by the end of the season if he manages to stay healthy. Also spurs will most likely offload Aldridge and DeRozan before season end so there will be lots of usage available.

It's 50/50 on the DeRozan/Aldridge thing, but yeah, this is pretty much the right take.

Is all this speculation from the practice video? He could be weeks away from actually playing and treated with kid gloves thereafter.  I don't see it this season for White

It's not some dangerous thing the toe issue so it won't be normal to treat him with kid gloves. It was just bad luck his injury.

Agree. He’s also Derrick White, not a franchise player like Kawhi or someone like that. Pop will play him when he’s cleared by the medical staff
