... (letís assume the most optimistic scenario for a moment), then hereís how the team shakes out.
The 4 and 5 spots are covered by Brown, Riley, Hill, and Nwuba. For better or worse, thatís it. I think we will be alright there.
The 2 and 3 spots will be covered by Wilkes, Ali, Smith, and Bernard. This is the most experienced group with only Bernard without significant PT from last year. But, itís thin, and all but Wilkes have question marks.
Alex O should return. Unfortunately, he returns to perhaps the most solid group already, and by then the team may not need his veteran leadership as much. If 3 of those 4 ďpan outĒ, he may not even play much.
Question marks grow as guys drop out, and there is no guarantee that the injury bug is done. In fact, with so many first year players, Iíd harbor a guess that those kinds of kids are the most likely to injure themselves.
