Darko To Return Against Minnesota - Probably

Via the local 6pm news broadcast on WMCTV-Channel 5, it was reported that Darko will likely play Saturday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves. They showed clips of Darko practicing today. Apparently the media attended the last part of practice. So naturally...

Ronald Tillery reports more about Darko on the Memphis Edge and provides some additional details...

(by the way, I like how the Memphis Edge gives Ron and other CA writers the ability to get information out quicker)

Team brass continues to say that Milicic will be a “game-time decision” when the Griz host Minnesota tomorrow. But all signs point to Milicic returning after a seven-game layoff.

“It’s fine,” Milicic said. “My conditioning feels good. I’m ready.”

Milicic re-iterated that he won’t play with the thumb heavily taped nor will he wear a protective brace. The 7-footer is left handed so he wouldn’t be able to catch the basketball.


So, Darko feels good enough to play. Love to hear that. We need someone to man up to Al Jefferson on Saturday night.

Now the question is whether Darko or Navarro starts? Your prediction?

Iavaroni may just start whomever the matchup dictates. I'll go with Darko against Jefferson.

Gotta go with Darko on this one. He has to come back with a vengeance or its going to be a long night. If he contains Al Jefferson, then we should take this one easily.

What about starting both? Then, bench Mike.

He is a proved 6th man, while JC is proving he's a starter.

One thing excites me most about this team is that MI has so many variants.

At this moment, in my opinion the best lineup would be:

Lowry (dreaming is for free)
JC
Rudy
Pau
Dark-o

I can make up my mind either way...

JC has earned his minutes lately...

but clearly Darko and Pau on the court together seems like the logical move...

hmmmm...i'm undecided....

if i was forced to pick, i'd guess Darko starts....
