Alonzo Gee to miss Hawks game

Due to personal reasons Alonzo Gee has not travelled to Wollongong with the team. Makoto Hiejima will return to the Bullets roster after recovering from his ankle injury
He looked very distracted against Perth. Bad family news perhaps?

I think he is getting replaced.

Feel for the guy if its something personal in his family or something, especially it coming at a time where his performances are being super scrutinised.

I hope it's because he’s been/being replaced.

I do not wish genuinely bad personal circumstances upon him though.

He's really only put in 1 good quarter or Basketball over this entire season.

"He looked very distracted against Perth. "

Someone sent him a link to the "who's going to get sacked?" article during the week

Not entirely sure what you guys were expecting out of him. In the NBA his role was a lockdown defender who mostly saw 6th/7th man minutes. He's never been a scorer

He averaged 10+ ppg a couple of seasons there with the Cavs but now that he's out of the NBA he looks like he's got one foot in retirement already.

Yeah well if he was mainly a defensive player in the NBA it would stand to reason that he would be elite defensively in the NBL and he is not. He is not a scorer or defender in the NBL and what he actually brings to the team is hard to even know. But if they're going for imports, just one more isn't going to get it done. Their Australian core is not strong enough. Not to be Homicide or anything, but a lot of these teams need way more punch than they have. Holt gives next to nothing as well. Brisbane basically need three new imports at this point just to be competitive. Yeah, I know I am saying that after a win to Perth, but Perth clearly went into Brisbane with low energy and were thinking ahead.

Last night against Perth was the first I'd seen of him, so maybe he'd previously looked a bit keener, but to me it seemed like he was putting in about 20%. Fair enough if he's had bad family news, but otherwise just not going to cut it.

Majority of these EX NBA players are down here for a paid vacation.
Nothing more

John Casey just said there is speculation Gee won't play again for the Bullets.

"Personal reasons"

Club speak for: you are getting sacked for playing like a bum, but we don't want to say that officially as we wish to maintain a good relationship with your agency.

He was getting a lot of pats on the back/chest from teammates yesterday. Maybe he has had bad family news and will need to fly home indefinitely?

Would match the news about a new import being on the way and Casey saying he might not play for bullets again.

Stop using this as an excuse for them losing!

The excuses for the Wildcats performance are ridiculous. Low energy? Thinking ahead? WTF LOL!

How about "but Perth clearly went into Brisbane with Gleeson..." :p
