I don't understand ! Rudy never had back problems during his tenure with the Grizz. He was out 2 years ago for his shoulder. Not really out for anything else. He was averaging 20 points and 6 reb for the Raps. Was his game altered in Toronto? Hope he gets back to full recovery. Really really sorry for him and Toronto.

back spasms, AFAIK.

Consider shutting him down cuz we have essentially nothing to play for the rest of the season and the effort out there over the last stretch of games has been appalling from him and many of the other players, so why not?

One day these teams will stop paying superstar money to players who put up avg production and pull a few game winners out of their *** on occasions. Rudy was never worth a max deal.

agreed. I never wanted him. We should have canned BC long before he even proposed the deal.

The Raps won't be much worse off if at all, which says alot about the guy they are now paying $18m+ to.

May as well let him get healthy. It'll open up some minutes for Ross on the wing which I'm happy about.

Whos the fantasy pickup for the playoffs as a result of this Raps fans? Anderson?

Definitely. Fields and Ross will get a boost in PT but probably wont produce much. Anderson should be a lock for 12-14 pts with a couple threes with Rudy out.

Yea I figured Ross and Fields would get more PT but put up modest numbers and be more hustle/intangible guys. I might swap Beal for Anderson for the playoffs to get that 3 pt production.

Its the right decision. Raps aren't making the playoffs, so time to give more time to Ross and others to build their value.
