    I hated to see Nerlens go down with his injury. But, things like this happen all the time… People get hurt through out the year! Why don’t Cody Zeller, Shabazz Muhammad, Next year Teddy Brigdewater and other players just sit out because possibility of getting hurt? They want to play the game!!!!! The playing scared game is alittle much
