Who is the pick up here? I would assume Ingram. 

 

If hes not already owned, yeah pick him up. I only play in min 12 team leagues so hes already owned everywhere.

Yeah, that what I ended up doing once news broke and I saw this video (Zion's Knee) I was scared away.

I did the exact same thing.

 

Hope he is able to contribute at some point this season for those who have him.

I don’t think we are close to Oden territory yet.

 

the red flags were already there before Oden was drafted.

 

Hopefully this is a blip on the radar and he gets healthy and finds a decent weight to play at that doesn’t put as much pressure on those knee’s.

Why did they blatantly lie to us? “Miss few weeks”, “got lucky, it’s nothing severe.”

His weight is so overblown. He looked just fine and played extraordinarily. He'll be alright.

His weight issues are not overblown.. Nobody is questioning his ability to be effective on the court. The concern is that his weight won’t even give him a chance to stay on the court for 82 games. 

For owners this is a huge blow and I find it unlikely that he will appear in 50 games this year. It’s hard to trade him after this news.

This sucks.

 

Losing weight doesn't mean he necessarily becomes weaker so worrying for his style of play i don't think should be the case. He has fat to lose first, doesn't have to come from muscle. And you have to think if he is lighter he will be faster and jump higher. If they do it the right way it will only help him.

9th-10th round. Only if you have an IR spot. 


With IR spot he is falling that much? 
 

Wow.

Out for two months. Will take another month to get back to full speed, so he will be back to full speed by end of January. Is it really worth spending say a top six pick on a guy who will only give you value come the playoffs (and even then the Pels can easily shut him down during that period to manage his health)

Probably the same spot as Oladipo. Difference is Dipo is already recovering and on track to beat his timetable. Zion’s situation still has a lot of question marks. I see the 2months as best case scenario

I really wonder what his weight will be like after a 6-8 week layoff. Since it's his knee, he can't even hit the treadmill.

You can swim, bike, and diet.
