If you're in the business of rooting hard for Sixers wins like your life depended on it, this is bad news. If you belong to the Jrue And Evan Development Is All That Matters camp, this is bad news. But if you love watching Nick Young do hilarious things, or you're Mike Baumann, then this may not be all bad.
Jrue Holiday did not practice today with left foot longitudinal arch. X-rays were negative. He's having an MRI. #sixers— Christopher A. Vito (@ChrisVito) December 13, 2012
And then the kicker:
If Jrue Holiday can't go Friday at Indiana, #Sixers will go to Evan Turner or Nick Young at point guard, said coach Doug Collins.— Christopher A. Vito (@ChrisVito) December 13, 2012
Obviously being without Jrue Holiday for any significant time would do catastrophic damage to this team. They aren't very good to begin with, then you're taking away the best player on both sides of the ball. Jrue is responsible for the highest percentage of his team's points in the league. Losing him and you may as well play touch football.
Nick Young though. Man, I couldn't imagine a more hilarious venture than watching Swaggy run the point. It's highly inevitable that it's going to be Evan Turner, but I'm not going to let this NICK YOUNG POINT GOD feeling escape the clutches of my heart. I'm all aflutter.
Royal Ivey isn't traveling to Indiana with strep throat, either. So Sheep Wayns figures to get some time too. Maybe Spencer Hawes will run the point. I hear they're interested in signing Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje to play every position but small forward. They'll stick with Damien Wilkins there.
With any bad Jrue news, we become inches away from Operation Tankadelphia. The schedule becomes brutal, no Andrew Bynum, no Jrue Holiday... I'll be over here doing body shots off Shabazz Muhammad's navel.
