Davis sitting tonight for a winnable home game.
This isn't going to help the Nets one bit.

I was not his biggest fan, but he is in a terrible situation. That roster is trash, he's the only wing or guard that the opposition needs to pay any attention to.
On the lighter side, the NBA is evidently thinking about a 4-point line.
"And he was fouled so he'll be taking four free throws"? Or a 5-point
play. "A close game but they won it 200 to 198."
I guess Major League baseball would look into moving the fences in to
the edge of the infield dirt. "It was a pitchers' battle 42-38."
Bye bye tradition. Man, when I was in college and we'd play nickel-dime
poker into the night in the fraternity house, if anyone even said "deuces
and one-eyed jacks wild", I'd pull my ante back out for that hand.
So I take it you would have pulled your ante if someone called Baseball? If you're not familiar with it, it's a 7 Card Stud game where 3's and 9's are wild and an upturned 4 gets you an extra card. We also used to play it the same way but as 9 card stud instead. I think it was called Blind Baseball but when I learned it from an Army buddy, it was called Baseball Night Game. There's also a few other similar games to those, Football (3's and 6's wild, upturned 2 gets you an extra card) and Woolworth's which uses the 5 and 10 for wilds but I don't recall what the bonus card was.
I used to hate wild card and extra card games or anything but traditional poker but over time I realized that the options (gimmicks) gave the wilder players more chances to screw up so I grew to love them. I especially liked any version of 7 card stud that resulted in 1 or more losers having to match the pot as an ante for the next game - games such as High Card Guillotine and Black Mariah.
Barrett looks like what I thought he’d be. High volume free balling type.
I’ve been wrong on Ja so far. I would’ve taken him #2 easily but I thought he’d be a huge project and take time. He’s very under control for an explosive rookie PG from the Ohio Valley.
I was very confident about both Ja and Trae being what they are now.
Clint Capela was evaluated for a concussion.

Source: Rockets center Clint Capela is expected to miss Friday's home game against the Pacers. Capela was evaluated for a concussion after a collision when he drew a charge late in Houston's win over the Clippers on Wednesday.

Caris LeVert has undergone surgery to repair damage to right thumb and is expected to miss several weeks.
This is a blow to the Nets.
The surprise team in the NBA thus far for me is the Raptors with an 8-3 record. They are without some key players due to injury including Kyle Lowry and the departure of Kawhi Leonard.
Siakem became a true superstar. 27pts 9reb 4assists per game through the 11 games. Kinda chuckling about the folks on here that equated Siakem to oubre.
Toronto is a good team. They did win the title after all. Yes, they had Kawai, but they must have had good players to get that far.
IMO, the surprise so far is still our Suns.
They also lost Danny green. Those are two big pieces.
Biggest surprise is still the Suns.
Yes they are and they've parted ways with some other key players too over the past few years but still, they've made the playoffs for 6 straight seasons while averaging 53 wins per year. And they trailed only the Warriors for best record the season prior to Kawhi and Green.
