    It has been so long, I was looking at the roster the other day and forgot the Lakers (my team) had Morris and Waiters on the roster. Now they add JR Smith! Not one of my favorite Laker teams.

    From Rotoworld w/ Rotoworld comments:

    Markelle Fultz has passed the NBA's quarantine protocol. He arrived in Orlando earlier this week and now has the green light to join his teammates for practice on Friday. Fultz was tending to a personal matter not related to COVID-19 so he should be all systems go for the restart.

    is it just me, or does it seem like a lot of NBA players have had "family emergencies" during the last week? I just read that Montrezl Harrell has left the bubble....and the Clippers were already missing Zubac, Morris and Shamet.

    There are a lot, yes. The "family emergency" qualifies for fewer days of quarantine upon return, so it may be being abused.

    So Lou Williams claims he must exit the bubble for a personal matter and is in photographs @ a strip club. He should not be allowed to return.

    I don't know. That seems pretty personal. Also, Lou's whole game is irrational confidence. Surely you didn't think that only applies on the court.

    As per the agreement, Williams gets 10-day quarantine.

    He apparently visited the strip club for "its food."

    SAC is getting healthier these last few days (though they lost Bagley for the rest of the play-in games).

    To be fair, Bagley has been "lost" pretty much since he was drafted.

    Marvin Bagley III has stud written all over him. I am not sure which Bagley you are referring to. Per 36 minutes in his career, he is putting up 21 points to go along with 10.8 rebounds. Most of that damage was done at the age of 19. Yeah, I'll take Bagley on the Rockets any day the Kings want to rid themselves of his services.

    If he could play 36 minutes per game, that'd be fine offensive production.

    So far, he can't stay healthy enough to do that.

    He's also perhaps the worst defensive player in the league. At -1.12 DRPM, he's the worst big-minute player by far.

    Holmes and Barnes got in what they needed to today during the game.

    He's 20. I'll still take him on my team any day.

    Unless MB3 develops an outside shot, I think he's too much of a tweener. Good enough to post some stats, not good enough on the defensive end. He's an old style power forward in a league where bigs need to stretch and defend (like a good pair of underwear). I suppose he can be a rim runner with a stretch 5 on the floor, but I'm not sure he'll be a good fit as a lone big.

    He's also got balky feet/ ankles.

    That's not great for a big man.
