    It's going to be so much fun when I'm right and everyone else is wrong (just like the last several years with the Blazers finishing above national expectations every single season). Will be a blast waving good-bye to the NBA's newest annointed one.

    Thank you. Gives others something to root against, too.

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    Harrison Barnes has tested positive for COVID-19. Barnes tested positive prior to the team flight to Orlando and he's currently quarantining at home, but he expects to join his teammates at Disney once he's medically cleared. He's primarily been asymptomatic and is feeling well, so he should be able to rejoin his teammates in time for the re-start.

    SOURCE: Harrison Barnes on Twitter


    The Blazers need him healthy for any hopes for the Kings winning one of the two games they have against the Pelicans. With him, they could win both. Without him, they will get swept.

    Barnes is the #1 reason the Kings went 10-5 after Feb. 3rd. He scored efficiently. He scored in volumes. He put pressure on the opposing Defense by both spreading the floor with volume and efficiency from beyond the arc while also getting to the free throw line at a decent clip. He distributed the ball at a very high rate for a scoring non-PG. He rebounded well and as a very experienced veteran, he obviously was a leader on the floor.

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    Multiple tips have been placed on the NBA's anonymous hotline to report protocol violations, which has resulted in some players receiving warnings. The NBA is enforcing strict social distancings and mask guidelines at the Disney World Campus, and they have provided an avenue to anonymously report violations in order to ensure their policies are followed.

    If you see something, say something! Normally a bit creepy, but in this case I certainly get it.

    Yes. Those scrubs the Blazers had to use were awful. We won't be seeing any of them in Orlando.

    So, Oladipo decided to play after he was informed that he wouldn't get paid. Same goes for the WNBA's reigning MVP.

    BTW the whole Rajon Rondo hotel outrage twitter thing is WAY overdone. I saw the pictures of the hotel room and that room is no better than the thousands of nights I have spent at Holiday Inn's and Hampton Inns over the years. Definitely not what I would expect out of a $300 a night Disney Resort that the NBA paid $150M for....

    They make up for it with selfies with Mickey.

    From Rotoworld w/ Rotoworld comments:

    James Harden has arrived in Orlando for the resumption of the NBA season. There were rumors that he had tested positive for COVID-19 but that does not appear to be the case. He'll have to isolate for three consecutive negative tests before he's cleared to join the team, but our money's on him being out there for Game 1 of the restart on July 31 against the Mavericks.

    SOURCE: Marc Stein on Twitter


    Nikola Jokic has officially joined his teammates in the Orlando bubble. Jokic tested positive for the coronavirus while in Serbia and some logistical issues delayed his arrival to the bubble, but he's posted multiple negative tests for COVID-19 and is officially on the Disney campus. He still needs to clear a physical before he's allowed to practice, though, so he'll be watching Tuesday's practice from the sidelines.

    From Rotoworld w/ Rotoworld comments:

    Dennis Schroder says that his wife is due in three or four weeks with their child and that he will "for sure" leave the bubble when it happens. It doesn't mean that he won't return for the playoffs, but it does mean that he could miss some time, especially with the quarantine rules for re-entry into the bubble. While he's out, both Chris Paul and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander are going to eat, big time.

    From Rotoworld w/ Rotoworld comments:

    Marvin Bagley and Harry Giles are the only Kings' big men available for the resumption of play in late July. "The only bigs we have out right now are Marvin and Harry," Coach Luke Walton said. "So They’re both getting a lot of reps and they’re both playing great. They look good, they’re moving well and they’re getting 100 percent of the reps right now." The Kings take on the LaMarcus Aldridge-less Spurs on July 31, so both players will be in play in DFS. Alex Len (COVID-19) and Richaun Holmes (quarantine) aren't available right now.
