    The type of injury Bayless has is a lingering one. His hip just gave out on him. Out of curiosity did you see it?

    *knock on wood* I don't want to jinx anything but given the schedule over the last 30 days (16 games), I don't think it is unreasonable to expect Bayless to sit more than he plays *knock on wood, hope I'm wrong*
    Ya i saw it. Thats why i said he'll be out atleast another week

    I hope you are right.

    Every week is 4 games.

    When bayless is on the floor i feel more confident this season. The guy can single handedly bring your team back from huge deficits. I want him back next season, whether its starting or off the bench

    Calderon can't continue to play 45 minutes per night. And I really wouldn't mind shutting him down for the year with 10-12 games left (i.e. next week to 10 days).
    Forget that action - ride calderon in to the ground until he:
    a) beefs up his stats for off season value
    b) re- injures himself to the point where he is done and you are left with Forbes at starting PG *ahem* lottery

    Oh man. No offense but sucks to be you - and any other fantasy manager with a player on a sh!t team jockeying for draft position over the last 10-15 games on their roster.
    I think he may have made the mistake and thought of Udrih???

    I thought Jose would be more likely to blow out his hip with all the minutes he's been piling on. Happy that there's some form of relief now.

    Default Nice signing

    Not a huge splash but a move that makes sense.

    Given Bayless' injury we probably wont see him again this year, since the team probably doesnt want this to turn into something that lingers.

    Also I like the fact that Uzoh is young, he could turn into a good third string point guard for us, better than starting Forbes at the point if you ask me. Plus we have nothing to lose in this deal.

    It's the rest he's gotten from a long period of time, in other instances, he plays for Spain internationally, and there isn't a lockout every season giving out 2 extra months of rest.

    Like Matt said, Calderon's injuries have taken a halt because of the rest, next season could be a different outlook.

    Looks like Bayless will miss the remainder of the season:

    Just realized this was already brought up in another thread. Anyways, maybe uzoh then sticks around till the end, or another pg is brought in depending on his play.

    good signing.

    I like the 10-day contracts. tank-mode on without forcing calderon and demar into injuries.
