Lynx guard Danielle Robinson's injury has playoff implications

Quote:
The high ankle sprain point guard Danielle Robinson suffered in the Lynx’s victory Thursday at Las Vegas might not heal in time for the postseason, which could force the Lynx to make a personnel move when setting the playoff roster.

The team will have a decision to make when setting the playoff roster, which cannot be changed after it is submitted to the league. If there is confidence Robinson could return during the postseason, they could keep her on the roster. Or they could sign a free-agent backup point guard.


Sucks for DRob. Though not surprised when I saw Colson walking around last night. Interested to see if anything happens.

They have Whalen, Wright and Jones at PG. Do they just stick with 11 for the playoffs?

Are there different rules for playoffs than the regular season? I don’t get how the Lynx can make any further moves if their cap is full.

They can’t make any trades, because the trade deadline is past. All the current contracts are guaranteed and they presumably have no cap left with the brilliant signing of Miyem.

I don’t like the desperation Reeve is revealing. A desperate-feeling Reeve (2012 Finals) does not bode well. Even if they’re able to add a player now, the odds that player can help you any better than what you have now with everybody used to playing with each other is minuscule.

These are the players that Reeve the GM gave Reeve the coach to work with. She got what she wanted, now show some confidence in these players. This has always been a weak part of Reeve’s coaching game. Overthinking and no confidence in the bench.

I think Minnesota stands pat with who they have. If they make it, Robinson should be available for the 2nd round depending on how bad it is.

And if they signed someone on short-notice, Reeve wouldn't play them anyway. TWright, then Whalen, then Jones, then Augustus, then Moore would be the point guard options. So what's the point?

Time for Alexis Jones to step up this year (or she'll be stepping out next year).

Okay, that clears roster space, but did they actually leave enough cap space to hire somebody for up to a couple of weeks?

Wagner would be a feel good story, but I doubt Reeve is interested in that.

I’ll give Reeve props if she is slick enough to sign Musina, the most intriguing prospect who was never given a chance. Doubt she’s in WNBA shape or would contribute any more than Zandalasini did last year, but at least they could lock up her rights unless there’s a loophole against that.

Could Anna Cruz be waiting in the Wings? Hopefully it’s not that French PG draft pick. Baric? Ish.

Schimmel? Reeve liked her during her draft year. Those feelings have probably faded, but if Reeve is looking for three point shooting magic in a bottle, Schimmel might be the one to supply it. She loves the big moments.

I was surprised Colson was cut this year, so I’ll ad her as somebody who might actually be able to help the team.

I used to push for Chelsea Hopkins because she was the Westbrook of overseas ball, but I haven’t been feeling her lately.

Maybe I’ll think of more later if they haven’t announced a new signing soon.

It’s appropriate now. Stop keeping secrets. This is supposed to be a real sport with real information divulged.

She gave an interview last year where she said that she was bullied her whole WNBA career for being straight. It didn’t go over well and people were especially outraged that she estimated the lesbian percentage of the WNBA at 98%. It’s probably the reason she was left off.

Terrible job by the Lynx or whoever created the top 20 list...Wiggins should definitely be on the list...Whoever made the list is just being petty.

Was it ever stated anywhere what the criteria for this list is? If they didn't say on-court production (as a member of the Lynx), then "Top 20 Players in Minnesota Lynx History" can mean whatever they want. 😭

So what is Brunson's status for postseason?

In a way, it may have been beneficial for her to rest, and if the Lynx lose their next one, maybe they more or less give everyone the night off on the last night, figuring a rested Lynx has a better chance of winning two games than a tired Lynx team does of winning one.

Hard to say, but by PER, the Lynx only had two above-average players this year. Not saying PER is perfect, or even close, but that does explain a lot.

As Kevin Pelton indicates here - https://twitter.com/kpeltonWBB/status/1029787367589081089 - the Lynx probably aren't going anywhere outside of 7th after last night's result. Brunson won't play again until Tuesday in the first round, at best.

D-Rob signs contract extension. Guess she's Whalen's temporary replacement.

Guess they won't have to core her. Megdal's spreadsheet shows her already signed through 2019. Seems odd they would have her sign an extension if she is already under contract for next season.

Reeve better have signed her at a discounted rate, maybe 105K?

Signing Maya to an extension should be the #1 priority, and yet we get one of the excuses for Howard not being signed as the first signing. I hope this isn’t an indication of another brutal brutal off season.

Looking at back at all the articles about how great and important the Tanisha Wright signing was, I wonder if Reeve would've gotten rid of Howard anyways if Renee Montgomery stayed:

"This is a veteran we thought was a must-have for our offseason. Even if Renee [Montgomery, who signed with Atlanta] came back. Tanisha gives us our best chance to win this year.”

So much for that, unless she becomes big in the playoffs. Because (though to be fair, Reeve probably has made every player look worse than they actually are this year) Wright is statistically worse this year than 2014 Tan White. All Reeve had to do was not think she had to replace her 34+ year old bench players with any more 34+ year olds (give the younger players a chance, especially Howard, and not be cheap giving her an extension), and everything would've fell into place for the Lynx to be better a lot better than .500 this year.

Miyem and Kizer are better. Didn't you see their amazing production in the playoffs? Smile

I can't wait to hear how Reeve and the Lynx Propaganda Machine spin this, since Reeve obviously didn't want Howard that much, or think she is that useful, because in sports if you really want someone, you keep them at whatever it takes (not low-ball an offer, etc), since the Lynx had enough money to re-sign her. And I didn't see anything this year that showed me the Lynx would've been doomed and go, say 18-16, if they had anybody other than super-hyped signing Wright as a backup guard—younger players, or someone cheaper (I didn't know Wright was an expensive signing when the signing news originally occurred).

Isn't there some law that says that if RebKell's fans are smarter than you, you must get fired, because Amber Stocks got fired when the Sky fans proved to be smarter at running the Sky than her, so can Reeve get fired because Shades (and I) never wanted to trade Howard?
