    So is Roy out?
    Ok Hornets, improving team on a back to back, need to step on their throats early and keep our foot there. Had three days to get our Royless/Lambless team in order.

    So is Roy out?

     

    The @hornets Injury Report: Hibbert (knee) & Lamb (hamstring) are both OUT tonight. Christian Wood missed shootaround w/ viral infection.

    Damn, would've liked to see Roy vs Joel

    Roy has been remarkably healthy throughout his career so it's concerning a non-contact issue is taking so long.

     

    Hopefully Christian gets a few minutes against his old team....he'd probably hyperventilate but still.

    Something was notably wrong with his gait as early as I can recall in that Miami game. Maybe this was an injury that carried into that game, unless you guys recall seeing something happen.

    On the radio yesterday, not sure if it was a Rick Roll interview (where he claimed his very good inside source said no Cody deal was being made, and it was just suddenly a new revelation), but it was mentioned how every season at the beginning of the year, Roy always has the same knee issue as he's getting into game shape. And how it always went away and was fine the rest of the year.

    Charlotte Observer had Embiid starting at center a few minutes ago, smh. I was thinking about going tonight, but I'd like to get a handle on who is actually playing for the Sixers. Both Embiid AND Okafor out? 

    Apparently Embiid didn't even travel. Embiid, Noel, Simmons, and Bayless are out. Okafor will play

     

    Christian is sick

    Shocking, shocking I tell you that the Observer had a guy that's not in the state starting tonight. I am not shocked in the least I am more informed because I watched ten mins of NBAtv last night than Slick and Fouler.

    Not since 2013 have I cared for the outcome of a baseball as much as I do tonight.  My entire sports worldview hinges on a few things.  1) Terrible Arkansas recruiting. 2) Arkansas media making excuses. 3) The Saint Louis Cardinals being the lone bright spot in an otherwise bleak sports fandom. 4) The Chicago Cubs indescribable lack of success, perennial suckage and being second fiddle to the Redbirds. 

    #1-3 aren't going anywhere, but I'm concerned that #4 is over.

    I find very little enjoyment in most of life's twists and turns. Though one thing I have always enjoyed is the Cubs yearly choke.

    I really need this tonight.

    Tonight we are all Cleveland.

    Kluber is on the mound, but in game 7 absolutely anything can happen

    Hornets start the game with the "Cody Zeller curl into the lane play" responsible for the Manimal posterization and multiple other youtube highlights.

    Man.
    Why are we letting the Sixers do this to us? Playing this team should be a gift, kind of like finding $20 on the ground.
