    I think this aint too bad if you look at our schedule. I hope fields is ok and comes back shooting the lights out. And i'm relieved to find out that lowry doesn't need surgery and that he'll be back in 1 -2 weeks. My dumb ass friend told me Lowry is going to get surgery on his knee, i'm going to kick his ass tomorrow.

    I guess we're all officially terrible people for putting Fields down. Apparently his hand would involuntarily clench and spasm. That sucks man.
    I betcha the spasm out was about the size of a certain silicon sack.

    Glad I picked up Calderon off waivers though
    now he gets all the chances in the world to quiet some people. hope he does. and casey needs to give ross some playing time already. feel bad for quincy.

    Two potential bright sides to this unfortunate bit of news:

    1. Maybe Fields's shooting problems will disappear along with his injury (or at least, be reduced).

    2. I looked at our schedule over the next two weeks (which looks like worst case scenario for Lowry's return). I think we can go 3-4. We play Boston, Orlando, Phili, Charlotte, Detroit, San Antonio, Houston and then Lowry SHOULD be back for Memphis. If he isn't, we can probably chalk it up as 3-5. But that would be worst, worst case scenario.

    Just by looking at teams I see as being better/worse than us, I figured we lose to Boston, Phili, San An, and Houston (and of course, Memphis if we play them sans-lowry), and we beat Orlando, Charlotte and Detroit.

    Knowing the Ratptors, they'll probably lose to at least one of the teams I consider to be worse than us, and beat one of the teams I consider to be better, but either way, if we can come out of this within 5 games of .500, I think we'll be okay.

    Things could be worse?
    charlotte is playing really well of late and philly is struggling. houston is winnable. lin playing like crap.

    No, it'd be like Nate Huffman. Toronto would void the contract, Fields would sue, Raps would lose and look like idiots in the process. Let's not even joke about anything remotely similar to the Huffman debacle....

    Hopefully Kleize takes the opportunity to blow up. If Calderon and Kleiza can impress it would really add value to our team; be it trade value, or some much needed confidence in our depth.
    I hate Dom! I don't understand why he's soaking up so many minutes..

    I was 98% joking (hoping for a quick/successful recovery)... but 2% likes the renewed financial flexibility... lol

    Turns out my joke was 100% correct. Watch the video and when he holds his hand up and twitches..... you see what I'm saying.

    OH man, if there's ever a time that we need someone to step up, it's going to have to be Derozan... cuz honestly, I don't know if Bargs is up to the task... or maybe is he suffering from some sort of injury too? (sorry, being lazy isn't an injury :P)

    The injury is huge for effecting his game. Can you imagine making a fist anytime you tried to shoot the ball prior to your release? It makes sense how constantly on the forum people have talked about his awkward release. I'm surprised he was even able to shoot 23% with his hand like that.

    I did a consult for the exact same surgery

    2 - 3 weeks in a sling
    2- 3 weeks physio

    and then add to that whatever he needs to get back to playing condition.
    That's why I say be happy if he is playing regular minutes before the All Star break

    the twitching can drive you nuts...makes you think you ALS, Parkinson's all kinds of stupid shit goes through your head....(never google your symptoms)

    I actually had a good friend who had a similar thing. It was some sort of muscle weakness - like Fields said - and it was extremely hard for him to shoot.

    He was a great shooter too. He had textbook form, always had the pocket ready for a catch and shoot, and now, his shot is just plain ugly. He never ended up getting it fixed, for the muscle is now to the point where it's not strong enough to get off purely on form. Whenever he shoots, he brings it up to the point of release, but before getting the shot off, instead of following through, his wrist sort of flicks to the side, and a couple fingers aren't followed through.

    So, basically, his follow through looks like peace sign like this: "V", but instead, the fingers end up like this: ">". Not to mention he throws his arm out like an idiot. So, imagine a Derek fisher/Josh Childress shot with that follow through. I don't think you'd make very many baskets.
