    If you are planning on winning games like Casey is for the sake of your job, do you play a guy who is crippled? Honestly do you?

    Last time fields played he missed a 2 dunks and 3 wide open like hes out on an island 3s.... you panic and bench his ass let him continue working with Sterner and Mckhenie in the mean time cause everything else is there which would be great for this team. till then though we got salmons.
    He was more crippled last season when he got more playing time lol

    I still like Fields.

    I see him as somewhat of a Bellinelli:
    Doesn't work with the talent level of this team, but a solid player.

    Looks like Fields will get some court time depending on how things go:

    When did that Nerve Damage happen ? Was it before of after he signed with us ? It must have been after because if it is as you putting it and would take years and years to heal, than he would have failed his physical exam.
    With entrapment it can come on very gradually. First your pinky is a little numb...then it progresses...people just assume they have a pinched nerve or whatever and keep playing...but the very shooting motion itself effects the cubital tunnel, which is what your nerve pathways go through in the elbow...which then causes a constant irritation, inflammation leads to even more symptoms. Every shot he takes effects those pathways.

    https://www.pinterest.com/pin/225320787579769560/

    you can see in the posted diagram how every time you take a shot that pathway is activated.

    Landry Fields has 1 of 3 paths

    1.) Shot is never the same due to some of the damage being permanent.

    2.) Damage eventually heals but takes a long time to get his shooting stroke back

    3.) Damage has already healed but confidence and form have been altered durastically

    If it was 1 they would shut him down from all practice

    If it was 3 you would hear stories about all the hours he is putting in with a shooting coach.

    It's likely 2...but alas I'm not a doctor just a guy with the exact same ailment who two years later has phantom pain and numbness in my fingers.

    Some of the comments on this thread are quite overboard.

    Landry Fields can't shine if he's not being given playing time, did no one remember the good things he did in pre-season and to start the season? His defense is very good, he's got awesome basketball IQ, good slasher, good passer, he's a perfect team player. I wish he would be used more, he's got a lot to give.

    honestly i don't know why we're playing vasquez over fields. fields is basically vasquez but doesn't try to play hero ball.

    Fields is no point guard. Vasquez led the NBA in total number of assists last year. Apples and oranges on the comparison.

    Well no shit. Fields has never been used as the main facilitator. But clearly we've seen him in flashes doing this earlier in the season when he was still being used and he was doing it well.
