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?
