    Timetable? Will he be ready for the playoffs?

    If not, I'm praying we get Denver now. No Gallo, no Faried, and no Lawson. 3 of their most important players.

    This sucks. I want to see the best teams at full health.

    With Gallo and Faried the Nuggets were probably the most fun team to watch. They'll still be watchable even without the two, but obviously not as much.

    I'm probably in the minority on this here, but I actually couldn't care less that it might help the Rockets advance to the second round. So, what. Beating a Gallo & Faried-less Nuggets team does nothing for me.

    ...And Anthony Randolph comes in to take his place. Denver keeps moving...

    Definitely agreed! Beating a team while you have your top players while the other team doesn't is not satisfying to say the least.

    There will always be a looming feeling that you did not really deserve the win... But still, a win is a win, and this is the NBA.

    Might have a bearing on the seeding as Denver has a back to back @Milwaukee tomorrow; lose that and they likely drop to 4.

    Of course Denver is like the Borg and seems to be unfazed by injury so who really knows.

    They can easily survive without Faried now that Ty Lawson is back. The have 3 creampuff games left and have to take care of business. I doubt the Bucks can beat them.

    They will need a fully-recovered Faried for the 2nd round.

    Too much basketball. Too many injuries.

    I think the Rockets would match up better against the Nuggets without Faried.

    Faried is a momentum machine.

    I'm with you. Denver can really turn it on, a fun team to watch (except when they play the Rox, which is [cue Clubber Lange voice] paaaaaaainful).

    The effects of the season, and stress of the upcoming playoffs is really starting to show now. Staying healthy is part of the game.
