I am amazed that they even have a winning record with all of these injuries.. I can't wait to see them at full strength.. Keep winning!!

The Wolves unfortunately need to move on without Roy. This is a chronic issue that will not change. We should have went after O.J. Mayo, but for some reason the Wolves; as well as,many fans, were skeptical and decided to throw a boat load of money at a restricted free agent they were never going to get and allowed Mayo, who would have come on the cheap, to get away. Now he is Dallas' leading scorer, and a pretty good defender. We have only one option now. We have to sign Gilbert Arenas. If necessary, sign him to a 10 day contract and make him prove himself. We have to get a legitimate player for that 2 spot. We are taking an intelligent chance with Josh Howard, we should take that same chance with Arenas. I think this is a no brainer, unless we want Mo Evans... Like I said. No brainer!

Gilbert Arenas, is a name and nothing more. He has nothing to offer the Wolves unless they're looking a .300 shooter to jack up shots at the rim. JJ's foot is killing us, hope it gets better soon but even then I am not sure this dude can stay healthy and he has serious stays hurt forever itis. We need a good journeymen SG like a JJ Redick. A guy who can shot it when he's open and smart enough to pass it when he's not. But we need Rubio back and a healthy third guard to make a trade to get what we need. I agree we blew it on OJ, but Gilbert is not the answer. He is out of the league for a reason.

JJ has been fun to watch this year. Before he got hurt he was really playing well. Last year he would sometimes play out of control and have too many turnovers as he would go flying into the lane. Once he comes back and plays like he did prior to getting hurt, I would play him 5-10 games and then trade him. If he is playing well his trade value should be high. As much as I like watching him play he has too many times in a season where he is sitting in street clothes on game night. I can guarantee he will be out another 2-3 weeks later in the season. I would get good value for him before he hurts himself again. Look at last year as precedent.
