Darius Garland (neck strain) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Phoenix.​

Garland took a shot to the face on Monday, which required a trip to the locker room, and while he was able to play through it, it seems his neck has tightened up on him. We'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity level at tomorrow's shootaround, but if Garland is forced to the sidelines, Ricky Rubio should return to the starting lineup and handle the bulk of the playmaking responsibilities. Stay tuned.


I’m guessing he’s going to be out against the Suns.

I didn’t watch the game were the refs really that bad? We had a lot of freethrows
There were a lot of fouls that bailed out the Nets or were at a really bad time for us.

Well of course. Aren’t young teams supposed to be healthier teams?

I’m sorry….we’ll just have to agree to disagree. It’s clear you are just a fan of the three point shot. There’s nothing efficient about firing up a three pointer on a 3 on 1 break. You can’t tell me a lay up isn’t more efficient than a three pointer. And according to your statement of shooting 60% on mid range shots as opposed to a 40% shooter taking three pointers…..if that’s the case only Joe Harris and the Curry brothers are currently shooting over 42% from three ball land. So nobody else should be firing them up at a rapid clip. And I wasn’t talking about firing three balls late in a game down one! That’s an every day occurrence in the NBA at any point in time during a game. Again everybody has their preference of style of game. I have no problem with the three ball I just think it’s over and misused. I consistently see teams going 9-27 or even 8-32 from three land but continue to jack them up. That’s not efficient.
There are far fewer guys shooting over 50% from midrange than there are shooting over 40% on 3’s

I do agree that the proliferation of 3 point shooting has gone too far and is starting to affect the balance of the game. We need some rules changes, starting with moving the 3 point line further out and eliminating the corner 3
Dunks worth 2 points, midrange worth 3 points, past the line worth 4 points. Foul someone in the act of shooting a 4 pointer, they only get 3 FTs and if they make the 4 pointer, no free throw. Also Weiner dog races.

Everything is worth 1 point and somewhere in the fourth quarter we let a little bird loose that is worth 150 points and ends the game.

I'd rather Koby do this than what David Griffin is doing in New Orleans. Gifted a #1 pick to compensate the team's star going to the NBA Establishment. Got their best players not named LeBron in that trade. Got another Top 5 pick courtesy of the "gift".

Lonzo goes to Chicago and is (no pun intended) balling. Meanwhile, their star is looking much like that meme of him awaiting the pot of gumbo being cooked and their next best player is on everyone's list for a trade.

Griffin definitely got the LeGM assist, and Koby has done the best with what little luck the Cavs have been granted post-LeBron. With no "LeGM" help. Meanwhile the actual "LeGM" is looking like a ticking timebomb in LA.

Give me the silence and bare-minimum "media releases".

To be fair, Koby was gifted a #1 pick too by Houston and Detroit combined.

Not doubting you but do you have actual stats proving that. Because from I saw the other day only four players in the league are shooting over 40% from three land (two of them are the Curry brothers)
