“@JasonLloydABJ: Dion Waiters had an x-ray on his leg after the game. It was negative, but the deep thigh bruise still affecting him”
Waiters on his bruised thigh
"It's just sore man, real sore. ... It's got to take time on its own to heal, but the season is here. There's not enough time to add. Just keep working on it and try to get it better. Keep icing it and things like that. I've got to play through it. There's no way around it."
As someone who has followed Waiters at Syracuse he will not sit out any games unless forced to. The kid loves to play and will never ask to sit. Love his mentality and we desperately need it around our team. Great game for him tonight.
Defensively I think he actually had a decent game last night. He has the ability to be a very good defender he just gets too aggressive on the ball sometimes and too lackadaisical of the ball. Kyrie on the other hand is still really struggling in all facets on the defensive end. Varejao has covered up a lot of their mistakes thus far.
Oh i forgot davis had an concussion and was out for week lucky Waiters
Arch that + - stat is not a very good stat to judge a player...
For being a dumbass you use a lot of face palms.GregOdenBust Dion Waiters is not a bust dont get salty my man its okay just admit you were wrong. We will forgive you.

Go hard in the regular season, take a breather in the playoffs!
From Jason Lloyd...
Just rewatched 3Q of tonight's game. Saw couple minor errors by Waiters, nothing egregious.
I don't have time to watch the first half, but he took a couple of questionable 3-pointers early in the quarter and very early in the shot clock. He lost Sefolosha on defense a couple of times, and he was lazy going to get a bounce pass in the lane from Varejao that resulted in a turnover.
None of it was awful, but all of it together may have irritated Byron. It will be interesting to see if Byron is any more forthcoming tomorrow on why he benched Waiters for the fourth quarter.
