I just read that Earl tore his meniscus in his knee, and CJ suffered a calf strain and is to be re-evaluated in a week. I smiled while reading it.
As Jazz Nation knows, at this point, CJ Miles is a plague. I love the guy outside of the court. He’s hilarious. But, regrettably, his hilarity carries over into his ball game. Why Tyrone Corbin continues to give him playing time, I have no idea. It seems to lead me to question Corbin’s mettle when it comes to professional coaching, and leaves me wanting him to be fired so that some sense can be put into the lineup.
As for Watson, I rarely like a player off the court as much as I do Watson. He’s a hell of a guy (At least, he was until that little drop about “Assessing the situation with his agent” came up) And I loved his early season play. But lately, he’s been off. Not just a little, the guy seems to be a different player. He’s clumsy, clogs the offense and doesn’t seem to have the court vision he did before. Honestly, I believe that Tinsley should be monumentally above him in playing time, and Watson should get garbage minutes with Evans to wow the crowd on their way out, at least until his play begins to improve.
However, the problem this poses is lack of depth on the wings. Alec Burks will undoubtedly get a ton more playing time, which I’m infinitely excited for. The guy oozes potential. And Hayward will be more solid on the floor, with the necessity to step up because of his fallen teammates. But beyond Gordon, Alec and DeMarre Carrol (Who has been PHENOMINAL lately, by the way) as well as the guy we signed to a ten day contract (Can’t remember his name) we don’t have any guys to come in and rest the big guns, unless Milsap and Evans get moved to the two and three position.
Do you see this as a gift? Or a mess in the making?
