Hello Kevin Durant Goodbye, James Harden
One superstar is set to rejoin the nets, just as another is headed for a long-term recovery. Really, what could be more suited to this disjointed season?
Durant, who has missed the past 23 games with a left hamstring, is “likely” to play alongside Kyrie Irving on Wednesday against the Pelicans, but the Big Three will not go away at least again. One week since Harden was deprived of hamstring stress that was revealed Tuesday by MRI examinations, he will continue therapy and be reassessed in about 10 days, according to the team.
Netizens have commented that “there is still time” for a full team to be in good health at once and stop before the playoffs every turn since late February when Durant is absent throughout the NBA All break. -Star He averaged 29 points, 7.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists in 19 games and delivered the MVP candidate torch to Harden.
Seventeen games have been out of schedule since then and the message has not changed whenever Durant’s schedule is pushed back or when Irving has missed three games due to family reasons or when LaMarcus Aldridge made his debut on the show without Harden injured.
There are 21 games remaining, Harden, Landry Shamet (sprained ankle) and Tyler Johnson (knee pain), and Blake Griffin (knee) is not planning to play in both games when back-to-back is scheduled. Grand
So, here are the questions to ask when it comes to thinking of all of the fully assembled Nets recovering from injury and chemical development ahead of the playoffs. Is there still time?
The best scenario – unlikely if Durant’s turnaround is any measure for Harden’s – is 16 games that would be considered the same as the playoffs warm-up schedule.
“Just hope those guys get some rest, stay healthy and they come back and we’re ready to go,” forward Jeff Green said after Harden came on the pitch in the Knicks win over last day. Tuesday
The Nets may not have an alternative to “Hope” after using 25 different starter packs and 16 different starter sets. The longest streak of the same starting lineup is four games in a row.
“I felt like we were just starting to think – James Keeree, myself, and the lineup on the floor,” Durant said last week about the chemistry before his injury.
Even in the end, the group was in good health. But will they still be long enough to find a rhythm before the playoffs begin on May 22? With the top three seeds in the Eastern Conference but safe, the Nets have a few pitfalls.
But Harden expressed urgency before his injury, saying: “On paper it looks good. But we have to get out there and go on. “
The Mets’ hope for the dream of five aces – Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Steven Matz and Zack Wheeler – remained intact for three rounds through rotation over four seasons.
The Giants’ hopes for the filling of the offensive playmaker – Saquon Barkley, Darius Slayton, Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate and Evan Engram were shown for a quarter of one of the 32 games played in the Giants. The first two seasons of quarterback Daniel Jones.
Sometimes it wasn’t meant to be
“You control what you can control and it’s unfortunate,” said netizen sniper Joe Harris.
The Bucks’ nuclei (Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Jrue Holliday) and 76ers (Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris and Ben Simmons) will not learn trends in each other’s fields in the playoffs. And filling the injury loophole beyond the Nets’ confines is no match when the contestants lower their turn.
Harden Irving and Durant have played seven games together since joining forces. Harden, Irving and Griffin have played together three. Irving Griffin and Aldridge played together. Harden, Irving and Aldridge spent a quarter of one game together. Harden, Irving, Griffin and Aldridge had yet to play together.
The lineup started the anticipated playoff rounds of Harden, Irving, Aldridge, Durant and Harris not playing for even a minute together.
It’s possible that the Nets’ careful approach is a magic touch and a healthy lineup only needs a few games to hit the right chords. Talented Pure Enough – 41 Career All-Star Options – On the roster of lack of familiarity is a moot point.
“It’s a regular season,” Irving said, “so we do our best to find motivation to play every game at a high level. … I think we can learn a lot from each other. ”
So much to learn Very fast.
