I was out for a couple of weeks, missing Gordon's injury, although I was back just long enough last week to watch the Clips lose two games in Texas. So I've been a little out of the loop, but I feel caught up after seeing the two recent victories.
What seems strange, however, is that Milph really seems to be avoiding any mention of Kaman and his return. I know that there was a Ralph tweet or something, but going two full games without saying his name once or showing him on the sidelines is a bit odd, no? Obviously his status is uncertain, but there are two ways to go with it. Either he's coming back in the near or more distant future... or the rise of DJ as a solid defender and capable starter, who is playing well and showing strong improvement, means that Kaman is more expendable and tradeable than ever before.
Enquiring minds want to know. Lots of discussion, of course, about Gordon's timetable for coming back. He's now listed day-to-day, and plans to join the team for the pre-All-Star break portion of the road trip. Though the LA Times said that the new listing is as much a clerical issue as anything else. Again, this discussion is all the more odd when put against the silence about Kaman, who was projected, indefinitely, as "not coming back until February." Okay, so now it's February. Where is he and what's going on? The Clippers have taken care of the relatively easy home portion of the schedule. Getting big bumps from Gordon and Kaman returning to the lineup would make a big difference.
