Well, hello Patrick McCaw. You could very well spend the next three-plus months as the NBA’s most-scrutinized rookie. And McCaw just might Custom NBA Jerseys be up for the job.In the wake of the knee injury suffered by Warriors star Kevin Durant in Washington last night — and with the fears that the MRI on his knee will force him to miss the remainder of the regular season, Kevin Durant Jerseys and perhaps more — McCaw will take center stage. Already, coach Steve Kerr has been trying to work McCaw into a consistent role in the team’s rotation.In the Warriors’ last six games, McCaw has played an average of 20.3 minutes. Now, with the Philadelphia 76ers Jerseys injury to Durant — who has also spent this season trying to mentor McCaw — McCaw could find himself shoved into the starting five Buddy Hield Jerseys of the team that is favored to play in its third straight NBA Finals. Kerr wanted to play McCaw more to ensure he is playoff-ready. That trial by fire figures to intensify now. The Warriors will pick up forward Matt Barnes, but still, the focus remains on McCaw.McCaw is not only a rookie, but he is a guy who was passed over in the first round of the Gordon Hayward Jerseys NBA draft out of UNLV altogether, falling to No. 38 overall. That was a surprise to many around the league, who had McCaw pegged as a late first-rounder, but he was, in the end, nudged out of the first round by the five Kristaps Porzingis Jerseys international players taken in the first round outside of the lottery.
Las Vegas bookmakers are dubious about the outlook for Kevin Durant, but even if the star forward is not back for the playoffs, the Warriors will maintain their status as favorites to Paul George Jerseys win the 2016-17 NBA championship.Golden State began the week at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook as heavy 5-to-11 favorites to win the title. When oddsmaker Jeff Sherman got to his office Wednesday and read up on Durant’s injury, he made a slight upward Stephen Curry Jerseys adjustment to 1-to-2 odds. A few hours later, the Warriors’ price was lengthened to 5/8.“The more we looked into it, the Warriors say they are pleased with the prognosis but he’s getting re-evaluated in four weeks, so he could end up being out Lauri Markkanen Jerseys much longer,” Sherman told Omnisport on Wednesday. “So it’s sounding more and more like into the playoffs is more probable than an end-of-the- regular-season return, so we adjusted it a little further. It sounds later rather than sooner. … “There’s a chance Derrick Rose Jerseys he misses the rest of the season including the playoffs,” Sherman added.With the tweaks to the Warriors’ odds, the prices on other Western Conference contenders moved in the other direction. The Spurs, currently the No. 2 seed in the conference, were adjusted from Dennis Smith Jr. Jerseys 8/1 to 7/1. The Rockets moved from 25/1 to 20/1, the Clippers from 30/1 to 20/1, and the Jazz from 80/1 to 50/1.In the East, the Cavaliers’ odds were tightened from 5/2 to 9/4, the Celtics from 25/1 to 20/1, the Raptors from Klay Thompson Jerseys 30/1 to 25/1, and the Wizards from 40/1 to 25/1.Let’s put things in perspective: 5-to-8 odds at this point of the season are ridiculously short and mean a bettor has to wager $160 to win $100 on a Warriors title.Even without Durant, Sherman Jimmy Butler Jerseys does not see Golden State relinquishing its four-game lead over San Antonio in the West.“They’re still going to be large favorites at home,” Sherman said. “They’ll still win their fair share of games even under these circumstances. It’s hard to make up that 2017 NBA Draft Jerseys many games with about 20 games to go.”
