Hinrich's concussion came a few games ago against the Pacers. He should be good to go I think by Tuesday because he seems to be progressing well based on reports i've read. Noah I think is going to be a day by day thing honestly so it'll be a wait and see approach for us in terms of whether he plays Tuesday or whenever.
He was referring to game conditioning though. You don't get that back in practice, supposedly.
How do you know he was referring to that? If Thibs speaks openly about something, i believe he said "we're worried about that" after he said "[Noah]'s completely deconditioned" then there's probably more to it than him just not being in game-shape.
I really hope Noah can shake this injury bug he has, but if not, when is it time to think of trading him?
We all love his defense, heart and chemistry he has with the team, but he can't stay healthy. I hate the thought of it, but if this continues you have to think about it, right?
Noah's probably always going to battle minor injuries. It's hard for 7 footers with his motor & athleticism not to.
This is why we need another frontcourt player, but I'm not all that worried about him. He just needs to get in shape and I'm sure out of the gate, Thibs will limit his minutes until he feels healthy again.
Noah is all done, I can't believe he's out again. Same with Hinrich. We need to trade them both for Tyrus Thomas and Jackie Moon, two bonafide every day high intensity players. Also, if Deng doesn't start the season scoring 40 a night he sucks too in which case we should trade him for a washing machine. Finally, if you see a possum running around kill it, it's not a pet.
It's anyone's guess what Thibs means by 'deconditioned' but whatever. I haven't seen anything ruling him out completely for Tuesday's opener so i'm gonna stick with the 'wait and see' approach i mentioned earlier. I was thinking along same lines as Doogs as well in guessing what thibs meant.
