Re: Los Angeles Lakers [28-28] - Embiid suffers broken foot

Postby Kevin on Wed Aug 26, 2015 7:56 pm

Embiid suffers broken foot, will miss 4 to 6 weeks


Image


Joel Embiid didn't play in his entire rookie season because of a stress fracture on his right foot. Now, in his second season, he is averaging 12.7 ppg, 8.8 rpg, and 1.8 bpg, not bad for his debut season following a comeback from a major injury.

He was playing well for the Lakers when he joined the squad in mid-December and even had a 30-15 game in January. But it seems like his debut season is going to be cut short by yet another injury. According to the Lakers' staff, Embiid's foot which he had surgery to repair last year has been re-broken.

Embiid is expected to have surgery to repair his injured foot some time over the next few days. His timetable on his recovery is estimated to be 4 to 6 weeks, depending on how well the surgery goes and how it heals.

Once surgery was considered an option, it shouldn't have come as a total surprise that a break could have been a possibility, but it's disappointing nonetheless. If Embiid's foot is already so weak at age 21, it's hard to imagine how he'll hold up by 30.

Even though the young big man showed his determination to come back on the court and help the team, he is very unlikely to participate in a basketball game this season. The only possible way is if the Lakers actually get to the playoffs but even that idea seems wild and far-fetched for Lakers GM Kevin Parker Sr. When asked, GM Parker said to the media:

"Joel missed his entire rookie season with an injury. This year, in his debut season, he's suffered sore knees and foot but still played through it and look where it got us. His health will now be our top priority this offseason. We need him next year for us to be contenders."

Monthly Recap Part 2 of 2

Image


Green = Team Leader in..

________________________________________________________________________________________________________



Team Monthly Report


What went right:
• We won 5 straight games before the All-Star Break!
• We, at one point, were above .500 and was 2 wins away from the 8th seed.
• Randle still is improving his game and is close to leading the team in points per game.
• Mudiay has now won 3 of the last 4 Rookie of the Month Award and is on his way to being named the Rookie of the Year.
• Stanley Johnson seems to be getting used to his 7th man role in the team and is back to his contributing ways.
• DeMarre Carroll is back and he looks good. We can finally play some perimeter defense on the remainder of the season.


What went wrong:

• Joel Embiid goes down with a broken toe and will be about for 2 to 3 months.
• Sim Bhullar does not seem happy with his role in the team and has actually announced that he is going to test free agency this summer.
• Still no progress with Porzingis. His late shot release makes it hard to shoot over tall, quick players.
• Nick Young’s role has now been downgraded to the 8th man of the team because of his continuous struggle contributing to the team.


What to expect next month:
I just checked the calendar and I already know we are going to get owned this month. First opponent of the month? Cavaliers. There are only two teams that is below 500 that we are going to face next month and those are the Nuggets and the Timberwolves. Expect some loses, Lakers fans. Just…… hold on. :lol:

Player Reviews


Shabazz Napier

I was a big fan of him before he played in the pros and even though we’ve seen him play in the NBA, I think he still hasn’t shown us what he can do because of the crowded Miami backcourt. I do not plan on retaining him for more than 2 years, though since I have massive plans when Free Agency begins.


DeMarre Carroll
The Junkyard Dog. When I saw him at the bottom of the Free Agents list, I quickly signed him a deal because I know we’ll benefit in the future. We’re not trying to win it this season so I really don’t care even if he’s out of the whole season. I just want him back when Year 3 begins so we can go back to our winning ways and finally contend for the first time in years.

Randle vows to play better to help Lakers reach the playoffs


Julius Randle has a little bit of something to say to the media on a Lakers Podcast. The young forward said that he'll step up his game and be more dominant on the low block this upcoming weeks.

"My brother Joel (Embiid) is out for a month, maybe two at best, so I got to cover for him. I promise that I am going to work harder and contribute more to the team now that I'm the only physical presence we have down low."

and when he was asked about his fatigue and overall health, the forward replied:

"Well, at the start of the season, I complained a little bit because of the minutes that I was getting. Coach wanted me to play for almost the entire game but I just can't. But now, I know I can do it. I just have to believe in myself and keep on doing what I've been doing since the start of this season. I'm not worried about being injured, I just want to showcase everything that I have so we can finally come back to the playoffs."

The young forward averaged only 8.9 ppg and 6 rpg last season but has seen it grow exponentially this season. Randle is now averaging 15.7 ppg and 10.0 rpg, paired with 2 bpg.

It's so hard to keep this type of thread updated. Still good work you have done here. I plan to recreate your Lakers in my association to face my Kings. I have a few one more season to get through to get this past draft class. Maybe I can draft Myles Turner or one D'angelo Russell for his passing.

Randle switches to the 5th spot


Julius Randle seems to be very confident when he said to the media that he'll be sliding in that Center spot previously owned by rookie Kristaps Porzingis. Porzingis, who is 7'1 in height, replaced Embiid a week ago for the starting spot when Embiid broke his right foot. Porzingis will now be sliding to the Power Forward slot.

Randle has been far better than Porzingis and is actually a candidate for the Most Improved Player Award this year for all the efforts he's put through this season. Randle is currently averaging 18.2 ppg and 10.7 rpg this season while Porzingis is only averaging below 5 ppg.

When Coach Byron Scott was asked about the rotation changes, he said, "Randle's just stronger and more skilled down low than Porzingis ever was. Zinger is a stretch four and he should stay that way. Meanwhile, Randle is a monster on the boards and with his post-up abilities, he can dominate matchups."

I've been making him the star of this team instead of relying on rookies like Mudiay and Johnson and vets like Kobe. I still need to figure out how to get him to average 25+ ppg without attempting more than 20+ shots too :lol: .

A young team with a winning record. What I want to see from this thread is what will these guys do in the playoffs.
Are they to young? Are they ready? Can they suprise the entire league?

-Julius Randle is balling out of his mind right now but is he Franchise player or just a flash in the pan.

Monthly Recap Part 2 of 2

Green = Team Leader in..

________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Team Monthly Report


What went right:
• We made it to the playoffs!
• Embiid comes back next week!
• Randle is a lock to win the Most Improved Player of the Year
• Mudiay and Oubre are battling for the Rookie of the Year
• Randle, at one point, was a candidate for MVP!
• We are leading the league in Assists and FG%!


What went wrong:

• Embiid missed a lot of time because of his injury
• Carroll hasn't been contributing as much as I would like him to.
• Napier and McRoberts' morale are so low


What to expect next month:
• WINS WINS WINS. Embiid is back and Randle's been playing great so far. Let's just hope he continues the way he plays with Embiid on the court


________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Player Reviews


Kristaps Porzingis

I've been on that Porzingis hype train since I saw him. I hope he does develop here in LA, though, with Embiid and Randle.


Rashad Vaughn
I don't know why but I just like developing rookies and seeing how far they can go. At first, I was skeptic about Vaughn since he went undrafted in my association even though he got drafted in the 1st round in real life. When I signed him, I went straight to the gym and tried playing him and soon I fell in love with his shooting. He can shoot deep threes and he comes up big in the clutch.

not sure why but this is what his contract looks like in the roster that I used.

btw, he didn't straight up say that he wanted to opt out of his contract, he did only say that he wanted to test his value in free agency this offseason.

The mixture of youth on your squad while still having a veteran presence with Kobe is A1. Hopefully you can make some noise in the playoffs.

out of curiosity, what font would you guys want me to use on future articles? I've used alternating fonts from TNR to Georgia then Calibri and back to Times again. What's the best font that's readable for most of you? Also, the points scoring is about to start this offseason so I'll try and PM everyone who has declared for the draft. Ciao!

Game 1

@ San Antonio

Spurs take first blood in 2OT; 101-104

Image


The Lakers have reached the playoffs for the first time in so many years and they are going all in against the Spurs. The Los Angeles Lakers and the San Antonio Spurs face each other in the quarterfinals and it ended in dramatic fashion.

The Lakers started out slow in the first half of the game, with Randle and Embiid having foul troubles. San Antonio destroyed the Lakers with their three-point shooting. They made 14 of 24 shots, unlike the Lakers who didn't make anything beyond the line going 0 out of 14.

4th quarter came and the Lakers cut down the 16-point deficit and saw the game go to overtime when Randle dunked Kobe's missed three-point attempt. Consecutive turnovers and bad decisions made the Lakers lose in double OT. They ended up with 28 turnovers on 6 quarters in total.


Player of the Game: T. Parker (32 pts, 11 asts, 3 stls)

Other Notable Performers:

Lakers:
J. Randle (34 pts, 14 rebs, 7 asts, 4 blks)
E. Mudiay (18 pts, 8 asts)
J. Embiid (12 pts, 20 rebs)

Spurs:
K. Leonard (17 pts, 2 rebs, 1 blk)
A. Williams (10 pts, 9 rebs, 2 asts, 3 stls, 2 blks)
P. Mills (15 pts, 4-4 3PT)

Series: San Antonio [1 - 0] Los Angeles

Re: Los Angeles Lakers [47-35] - Game 2 @ San Antonio (Duncan-less Spurs)

Postby Kevin on Thu Nov 12, 2015 8:18 pm

Game 2

@ San Antonio

Lakers take advantage of Duncan-less Spurs; 92-77


Image


The Spurs announced two hours before the game that they will be resting Tim Duncan because of a minor sprain in his ankle that he got when practicing, which means the odds are in the Lakers’ favor tonight.

Los Angeles destroyed the Spurs in the paint, scoring 62 points compared to San Antonio’s 26. The Lakers also held a favourable advantage in rebounding where they garnered 16 offensive rebounds and 32 defensive rebounds, totaling to 48 rebounds compared to the Spurs’ 32.

It was a close game going in the 2nd half but quick, decisive runs by the Lakers bench players like Vaughn and Johnson gave them a 15-point lead after the third quarter.


Player of the Game: J. Randle (23 pts, 13 rebs, 1 ast)

Other Notable Performers:

Lakers:
S. Johnson (20 pts, 4 rebs)
K. Oubre (17 pts, 5 rebs, 2 asts)
J. Embiid (16 pts, 11 rebs, 2 blks)

Spurs:
T. Parker (26 pts, 3 rebs, 6 asts)
M. Ginobili (16 pts, 6 rebs, 3 asts, 2 stls)
K. Leonard (16 pts, 6 rebs, 2 asts, 2 stls)

Series: San Antonio [1 - 1] Los Angeles

Your frontcourt played really well with Duncan not in the paint. Who is checking Parker though? He has gone off the first two games.

It doesn't matter who I put against Parker. Mudiay's always in foul trouble because of that sleeky bastard. :lol:

But the thing is, he's been shooting poorly ever since Game 1. He shot 43% in the regular season but he's now shooting at around 28-32% FG. He's just attempting too many shots, that's why he's having high scoring games.

Re: Los Angeles Lakers [47-35] - Game 3 vs San Antonio (Somebody got injured!)

Game 3

vs San Antonio

Leonard sinks in floater to get 2-1 advantage; 78-80

Image


The Lakers started slow, shooting at 20% in the first quarter with Mudiay, Oubre, and Randle not making any shots. The Spurs however came out firing on all cylinders as they plowed down the Lakers in the first quarter with 7 three-pointers, 4 of those were a part of a 12-0 run by them.

Fortunately, the Lakers came to their senses late in the 2nd quarter where they battled it out in the paint. They managed to cut the Spurs' 15-point lead to just 4 at the end of the 1st half.

Early in the 3rd quarter, Lakers Center, Joel Embiid, seem to have suffered yet another injury on the floor while he was going up to get the rebound. He was assisted off the court and carried to the locker room by his teammates.

4th quarter came and we see both teams trading baskets. The Lakers depended on Rashad Vaughn and Stanley Johnson for contribution versus the duo of Mills and Green. Minutes later and they are now tied at 78-all with just 40 seconds remaining. Kobe seemed to be the go-to guy for the Lakers, whilst ignoring his shooting for tonight as he was 1 of 8, when they tried to make all the plays for him but sadly, he came up empty after 3 different plays and 3 offensive rebounds by Randle.

The Spurs took advantage of the situation and read what was supposed to be the last play for Kobe and Leonard successfully stole the ball from the inbounds play after. The game ended with a buzzer-beating floater by Kawhi Leonard to seal the win for San Antonio.


Player of the Game: K. Leonard (26 pts, 6 rebs, 2 asts, 1 blk, 3-4 3PT)

Other Notable Performers:

Lakers:
E. Mudiay (15 pts, 3 rebs, 3 asts, 2 stls)
S. Johnson (12 pts, 3 rebs, 2 stls)
J. Randle (11 pts, 9 rebs, 3 asts, 2-10 FG)

Spurs:
T. Duncan (8 pts, 9 rebs)
T. Parker (8 pts, 2 rebs, 9 asts)
M. Ginobili (8 pts, 4 rebs, 4 asts)

NOOOOOO not the buzzer beater. That is THE worst way to lose a playoff game especially after all those misses at the end.

I knew as soon as I seen the title that it was Embid that went down. He always seems to miss a whole bunch of games.
