    Clint Capela told a source that he plans on returning the first game after the All-Star break (3 more missed games). He said his thumb is 100%. He is working out like crazy and is not planning on going anywhere during the break.

    Players can sometimes exaggerate their return schedules or the team may change those plans, but that is exactly what Capela himself said today.

    Excellent news! Though some people here might still have preferred him to be traded for Thon Maker or something.

    We miss his rim protection and defensive awareness. I expect Harden’s assist totals to increase sharply.

    But did he agree to miss the appropriate amount of free throws?

    "Clint, we're going to need to keep your minutes under 2,000 for the season. You've lost your starting spot to Kenneth.”

    In all seriousness, this is great news. Let's make a healthy playoff push.

    Please just don't rush things back, if he's ready (medically, not him personally) then that's awesome.

    Nice the team is getting healthy finally and we’ve added guys that make our roster very versatile and talented across the Board.

    Morey trimmed all the fat and shed salary at the same time.

    If you told me we had green rivers shump and Kenneth off the bench and we’re under the tax before the season started I would have said no way. that’s to many talented players that make to much money.

    Morey the magician did it again.

    Let’s get it clint your the missing piece to the puzzle.

    Fingers crossed for keife Morris.
