No. Play Rotisserie format.

No

Tbh, I am enjoying the chaos.  Every manager has to deal with it. I like that this season, the top picks were not set in stone, and guys like KD and Kawhi mucked it up. Even Harden was not clearl

It will never be the end as we are addicted to it, but this year is terrible and needs more luck than ability unfortunately. It's not if the injuries/rest hits you anymore, but the timing. What good is having Harden and AD if you don't have them available for playoffs 😅

Bugs above made a very strong suggestion as to how to navigate the daily nonsense which I will try next season. Might be a good idea to also start your playoffs earlier to avoid the constant resting and phantom injuries that come up as season progresses

Kyle Lowry (rest) won't play on Wednesday

Karl-Anthony Towns (personal) won't play on Wednesday

Paul George (rest) won't play on Wednesday

Blake Griffin (injury management) won't play on Wednesday

Kevin Durant (injury management) won't play on Wednesday

And so on...

Where NBA is going ?

How long do sprained ankles really last? Feels like guys are sitting out longer for something as minor as a sprained ankle. Doesn’t the NBA have the best medical staff and nutrition out there? 
People like to lambast the players from the past, but they atleast would play even if they were a little dinged up. 
 

These new cats are sitting for a broken nail lol

 

then you have Kyrie who’s just randomly taking rest days

wow, that’s unbelievable. What the hell is injury management ? If he played last night and was deemed healthy , why is he sitting out tonight? Couldn’t they just limit his minutes ? 
Adam Silver needs to do something , these players want the most money but are barely out there playing.

Towns is attending a memorial for his mother, who passed away a year ago due to COVID. He should not be on this list.

to be fair, the schedule this year is beyond ridiculous. not doing these guys any favors

NHL more physical, more condensed and no one resting. Not a single star has sat and they are playing 3 in 4 nights weekly. If there were consequences this would stop but there's no one in charge

The league is a joke, they make more now than they ever have and play less, not to mention ripping off the fans who come to see them play and the TV networks who pay billions to these teams. Once they get rid of the cardboard cutout as commissioner it might change. This doesn't happen in any other sport. I wish these guys had the attitude of hockey players or football players

It is good for the NBA to show solidarity, especially when majority of the stars are mentally impacted one way or the other. However if I may be candid, corporations often have a marketing angle whenever they do anything

nothing to do with the schedule imo

 

at the end its pretty simple: why would you play 82 games if you can do it 50 times and still get paid the same? as long as there are no repercussions nothing will change. quite the contrary.. it's gonna be worse next year. book it.

I disagree. Sports is our getaway from the bad in the world and as we saw with ratings people aren't having it when the NBA gets involved in issues outside. If players want to sit out and they will go ahead but sports need to stay separate
