Will Robin Lopez Play Against Spurs?

The Suns say the big fella is a “maybe” for the series opener tonight. The Arizona Republic reports: “Suns center Robin Lopez is a ‘maybe’ for Game 1 of the San Antonio series after participating today in his second team practice and first full-court scrimmaging since going out with a bulging disk five weeks ago. ‘He was fine,’ Suns coach Alvin Gentry said. ‘He’s just making progress. Baby steps. He’s better this week than he was last week so I think that’s a positive.’ Asked if he played any full-court action today, Gentry said, ‘He did some. As I said, he made some progress. I wouldn’t count on him playing 30 minutes tomorrow, no.’ At all? ‘Maybe,’ Gentry said. ‘Who knows? We’ll have to see how he is after today.”‘

    What about just making his brother wear a wig and average 18 and 10 versus Mcdyess/Bonner?

    He’s key to their success in my opinion. Spurs will be much less dominant inside with him on the court.

    I like Joel’s idea a lot.

    Jarron Collins hasn’t been all that bad in his stead. Certainly brings alot of energy (for the 15 minutes of court time he gets..?) and has a nose for the ball offensively – Robin Lopez is the bigger/better player though. Let’s go SideShow!
