    EG looks great when he is at his best. I'm so sad right now and worried too. Rivers has to start, but we are going to miss EG's defense in particular. Fortunately, House is playing very well. Green should continue to be ahead of Ennis in the rotation.

    I don't want to trade EG, but this injury reduces his trade value.

    The knee cap is a huge concern. We all know that Tillman is extremely focused on the knee cap and would not add one cent of the knee luxury tax.

    Eric was just transforming into a super saiyan. Back to piccolo status.

    Hopefully its is something minor. He is scheduled to have a MRI on his knee tomorrow. Probably will miss the game on Monday against the Memphis. Time to bring back Brandon Knight from RGV. Lets hope he find his game fast.

    Let him or Gary Clark to play few minutes is ok. We can start Green, Austin rivers or house

    Nah, Michael Carter-Williams is a better Yamcha comparison. Piccolo fits for EG. (Takes off DBZ nerd glasses)

    That's an overuse injury.

    If he is getting an MRI it means they are looking at the soft tissue so probably not an issue with the bone I'd imagine (fracture). But so many things can happen when you hit your knee - hopefully the MRI is just precautionary and they aren't expecting any kind of meniscus or ligament tear.

    EG was very fluid out there in this game. Almost like last season's player. When he is at his best, he is a near All-Star. This sucks. Get well soon Eric, we need you to be healthy and at your best.

    That's harder to recover from unfortunately.

    I'd take that over any kind of tear

    So they most likely just want to run Harden, Capela, and Tucker into the ground then? Cool.

    Dude, you know it doesn't work that way. Played out the same unfortunate way last year in the Playoffs. Old teams need a lot of luck to stay healthy. This one has been particularly unlucky the last two years.

    I thought MCW was more a Yajirobe kinda guy than Yamcha
