What are the odds someone from the West sits out the All Star?
Dwight Howard has been having ongoing shoulder problems, though will play soon
Chris Paul has been experiencing ongoing knee problems, though is expected to return eventually and is the captain of the all star team
Tim Duncan recently sprained his ankle, though the tests were negative. Poppa is the coach but he has known to sit out his players. Duncan also admitted not wanting to play in the all star game if he wasn't chosen in.
Blake Griffin recently strained his hamstring. But he will be day to day.
** That is 4 out of 5 starters. You just have to imagine that there must be some possibility that in the next week one will still be hurt or get hurt further. I mean, I'm not talking about for the whole season. I'm talking about a few games. What do you think?
