Lisch ankle fracture

To be re-evaluated in a month's time. Big blow, he was looking in the best form since his Hawks' days. Probably our best perimeter defender, also.

Damn, If only they had a next star who has already been drafted and played at the world cup and would be a starter on every team in the NBL to step in.

alexkrad, it would be even more special if the person stepping in was like, from Brazil or something.

That's really disappointing news as I agree that Kev has been in awesome form... Luckily for the Kings it was a player that there are ample reserves for and hopefully they find a proper PF so Kicks can sit on that lazy arse of his...

Didi is no Lisch, shot something like 4 from 24 over weekend.
Kickett is the back up five man, doing well, the rotation of Tate, Moller, Newley through the 3/4 spots is working very well.

Didi is not the defender Lisch is. He's got good length and can disrupts things, but he's not even close to Lisch overall in that category.

And @ Wookie, in defense of Kickert I've actually been really surprised at his defensive intensity this year. Still gives up too many boards, but he's actually been pretty good around the basket and came up big especially in the last home game vs NZ I thought. His shot hasn't been dropping like it used to, so it's really needed if he's going to have any place on the court for us this year.

Yeah that sucks, really going to miss his leadership, defence and shooting. Kings season fell apart two years ago the last time we had a lengthy Lisch injury.

I am sure the league will give them some special injury replacement rule. Can they borrow Lamelo for 2 months?

Yeah Didi is no Lisch.
Kings might lose one game over the next 2 months instead of none.

I would love to see a player swoop

Naar Andersen

for

Walker Bruce

Kings Andersen retires as a Champion again, Naar playing with Lisch and Ware
Hawks get small Forward in Walker and a expienced PG in Bruce

They have the luxury of adding an import as a replacement.
Jeremy Kendle would be ok for short term.
Ware, Newley, Tate,Moller, Bogut.
With Kendle, Didi, Kickert, Bruce, Hunter and Kuany off the bench.

Kings travelling very nicely, they would have local training players who could just step in for the short period. Defensively Lisch big loss and offensively to but they have depth, look like a very unselfish team. Didi, Newley, Tate and Moller should be able to cover the void.

"I would love to see a player swoop"

Firstly, there are no trades in the NBL. Secondly, why would the Hawks make a trade that makes them significantly worse?

I am just saying there's a lot of players in the league not playing or just 5 mins or less

I see the hawks wining the swoop, Walker and Bruce would be cheaper than Anderssen, so its more a salary thing

I thought Adelaide were the only team that could swoop?

Because the NBL revolves around Sydney. Apparently.

LOL @ the swoop reference. #SwoopCity

This truly sucks, I was really enjoying his start to the season and worst of all is that Kev will be fresher come playoff time than the rest of the league, an absolute blessing in disguise there.

Manu Fieldel just trolling.
He is a nobody.
How moderators don't block him and his moronic friend Perthworld baffles me.

This forum is going downhill I feel bad for regular contributors MACDUB, Paul, Mystro, Isaac, J Toft, Zodiac and my personal favourite Koberulz.

Let's bring in NBL SWOOPS! Imagine that big dope Daniel Johnson just sitting on the bench unsuspecting when a magpie enters the arena and makes a beeline for his noggin

The magpie may swoop down on DJ but will back off once it catches a glimpse of his intimidating wing tattoos.

Fresh undoubtedly. Match fit? Nah.
