he might actually play in some of the remaining preseason games...

If the Heat were smart, they would just save him for the post season.

He'll play one game once a week for about 15-20 mins in the regular season. They can't just sit him until the playoffs because that would create so many problems in terms of rust, chemistry on the floor with teammates, etc.

Default Re: Oden had his first full practice... Is he really back?

I hope i dont see him in the preseason or even the first month. bring him along slowly. He can play garbage time in December. only until January would i start playing him 20minutes if he is ready to do so.

His body is fragile and so is his mind. If he sustains another knee injury, his body might recover but his mind will not

Default Re: Oden had his first full practice... Is he really back?

I HATE HATE HATE this idea that he should barely play in the regular season and then just play 20+ minutes in the Playoffs. If he's been cleared, feels great and apparently is playing like a monster around the basket, why not give him a shot? Start him out slow, like around 5-8 minutes a game, and if his knees are holding up and he's making progress, give him his time. My ultimate dream for this season would be for Beasley to break out, Oden to become a starter, and Wade to pour it on and just go ham. LeBron should relax and not have to worry as much about putting up insane stats night in and night out. Having LeBron at 24/8/8 on like 55% at around 35MPG would be ideal.

If I was on the coaching staff I'd opt to play him once every 3 games. even if he was "100%"
