DeAndre Jordan tested positive.

He has ruled himself out of the restart.

Huh?

It is a month away. I mean, I get you don't want to waste time getting swept out of the playoffs but jeez man. You will be good to go in a few weeks and immune.

There will be more and if this thing goes ahead the basketball will be awful, at least initially.

I honestly don’t know if I see myself getting invested in any of these games. Maybe one pops up but so many ? marks that I will likely hold off until the playoffs

I mean, I see a few great angles right now but betting a game now is like bowl season... Gotta wait injuries/suspensions/draft eligible sitting out. Only this is the virus and guys on non contenders trying to sit out.

Someone please explain to me why one of these teams doesn’t pick up Jamal Crawford for the playoff run? Dudes still a walking bucket and id think he could contribute off the bench, no?

Maybe due to eligibility rules for the playoffs? It may be a situation where he would be able to play the games leading up to the playoffs but would then be ineligible for the actual playoffs.

There was another situation with a guy who was traded and he isn’t eligible for playoffs or something like that. I’ll see if I can find what I was reading.

I thought they were going to be more lenient on that with this stuff? Maybe it's only if he's replacing someone.

Here’s some more info on it, looks like Crawford is eligible to be signed and play in the playoffs...


There are only a few restrictions on the substitute player pool until Aug. 14: A player must not have been under contract with a team outside of the U.S. during the 2019-20 season, and he must not have been waived after March 1. That keeps players such as DeMarcus Cousins, Jamal Crawford, Gerald Green and Isaiah Thomas in play as substitute options.

Any player signed as a substitute will be paid a prorated minimum contract equal to 20 days of salary. For example, JR Smith will earn $289,803 with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Once the play-in games and/or playoffs begin after Aug. 14, only players with zero to three years of service are eligible to be signed as replacement players. That pool of players includes Dragan Bender, Jemerrio Jones, Jonah Bolden, Tyrone Wallace, Henry Ellensonand Amile Jefferson. However, Isaiah Hartenstein and Allonzo Trier are not eligible because they were waived after March 1.

One more important note here: Teams are not allowed to sign temporary substitute players. Once a player on the roster has been replaced by a substitute -- no matter when that substitution occurs -- he is ineligible for the rest of the season.

just baffles me a team hasn’t picked him up. maybe he only has interest in west coast teams but he’d be a great fit for the Sixers imo who need help stretching the floor and he could even give Simmons a break from running the point.

Is that who it was? I couldn’t remember and couldn’t find what I read but posted the other blurb from a different article.

I just looked up Green and that’s not the situation I was thinking of. Green’s situation was different because Houston traded him which is why he wasn’t able to be signed again by them.

Lowry dropped some weight

Marc gasol dropped a lotta weight, gasol could be a big help against most teams, but I wonder if it hurts them vs philly, he is one of the guys that's given jojo a lotta trouble

It wasn’t Green...

Must have been different stories then, this is one I meant

It may have been Crawford (and anyone else in his situation) I was thinking about from the article I read. I say that because it was initially only players who were on an NBA contract this season at some point who were eligible...but that has been changed to include last season as well.

Still doesn’t explain the eligible to play in the play in games but not the playoffs, but maybe I’m just crazy and making stuff up I thought I read, lol.

Its weird, also dumb

Its clearly a once in a lifetime situation, just let em play anyone whos willing, no ones gonna go there to have no chance at a title even if they make playoffs

Just seems nba and mlb making it so hard on themselves

Yet somehow nhl just came up with return go play and extended their cba for 6 years

The NHL is equally dumb though, maybe for other reasons. First off, having the draft lottery before the playoff teams were set was the dumbest thing they could have possibly done. It was unnecessary and couldn’t have turned out worse. Second, it’s still taken FOREVER to get back on the ice, there’s just no way it should have taken as long as it did. They don’t get too much credit for being the tallest midget, they’re still a midget.
