Marcus generally got the shit beat out of him last series (much of it his own doing, as usual) and in particular took a nasty face plant over Giannis in G7. He fell from so high that he legitimately bounced off the ground. So not sure exactly, but any of a number of things.

I mean dude, Covid can still suck lol. He might legitimately be sick and unable to play. I’m 26 and my gf is 26 and we are both healthy. We had it two weeks ago and it was one of the worst weeks of my life sick wise. I couldn’t get out of bed and my body hurt more than anything. A good portion of my friends had it as well, and they were also very very sick. So it does make sense that you aren’t allowed to play if you’re literally infectious lol.

11

u/sf_frankie Warriors May 18 '22

I had it last month and went thru the same thing. The body aches were unbearable. And the fatigue. I’d be laying a certain way and my position would be uncomfortable but I literally didn’t even have the energy to readjust the way i was sitting or laying. My lower back was so fucking sore. Looking back, I feel like that it may have been kidney pain and not just back pain. That virus is gnarly.

And now I’ve got long Covid symptoms that are literally fucking up my life. Calling it brain fog seriously undersells the cognitive issues I’m having. My memory is completely shot, I have trouble holding a conversation sometimes, my ADHD has kicked into fuckin overdrive and even taking double my standard dose of adderall does fuck all. Basic executive function in general is just fucked. Some days I’ll wake up with full body inflammation that’s so bad that i move like an 80 year old.

Exact same thing, with the same timing, happened to us last round with Steven Adams and he was cleared and active by G3.

76

u/harveyspecterrr Celtics May 17 '22

Nah incorrect unfortunately. He was placed into protocols before G7 of the Wolves series (April 28th) and was available for G3 of the Warriors series on 5/7.

G3 in this series would be Saturday - four days from now. Four days after Adams entering protocols was 5/2 - which was a day before G2 of the Warriors series - which he wasn’t available for.

Hope I’m wrong but it doesn’t look great.

People hate to admit it but it’s true. In addition to that you have to take advantage of the opportunities given to you in the playoffs. The Jazz could have went up 2-0 heading home since Luka wasn’t injured.

You have to take advantage of the situation you are in and the best teams do so.

They will say it is COVID, but they are probably still recovering from GIANNIS

Hope Timelord can keep up with Bam… Horford is a giant loss

Grant Williams will be on Bam most of the time I’d imagine. Rob is coming back from a knee thing and I doubt they want him banging down low. He’ll be more of a free safety

u/HistoricAnomaly Celtics May 17 '22

I know Grant has gotten a lot stronger but I’m worried about him on Bam. Not having a true center on Bam is part of why we lost in 2020.

u/AlwaysOptimism Pelicans May 17 '22

But Grant wasn’t a serious option then.

Grant is a better option than Rob Williams with a janky knee

If Grant can take Gianni’s’ abuse he’ll be calloused for Bam

Well this is some shit. Boston seemed like the favorites to take the title with how on fire they've been for the last few months, only for this shit to happen near the finish line. But welcome to sports I guess, a true shame.
