Well I said likely.
Looking at what happened to Cousins, If I were the Pelicans, I wouldn't risk another injury to a top 5 player in the league. Yes, the Pelicans are in the tight playoff race, but playing back to back to back takes a heavy toll on a player.
AD owners should hope for 3 consecutive games with minutes in the lower 30's. Sheesh I''d take that any day.
AD has 4 games in 5 nights this week. Realistically speaking, it's logical for AD to play 3 games in 5 nights than 3 games in 3 nights (unless we expect AD to play 4 games in 5 nights...Great job NBA). Good luck to all.
