Peja sera encore absent ce soir face aux Lakers, Posey va donc débuter dans le cinq ce soir encore.
Selon Hornets 247, Paul pourrait revenir dans les 10 jours à venir. Ils disent aussi qu'il sera prêt à faire tout ce que lui demande Bower et qu'il aime ce qu'il fait depuis qu'il est à la tête de l'équipe.
"In the past week, Paul has increased his workload. He was on the court for almost an hour before Sunday's game at Arco Arena. He is working out during morning shootarounds and before games, but he said his sore ankle still prevents him from making cuts.
Bower said Paul is making progress and is following the plan that has been specified for his rehabilitation.
"We continue to wait until he's able to run, cut and jump, " Bower said.
Neither Paul nor Bower would issue a timetable for a return, but it could be within 10 days, based on the amount of work Paul is doing now . . .
. . . When he returns, Paul said he will adjust his play to fit Bower's system. The Hornets are initiating more plays on the perimeter, with Collison making quicker passes than in Scott's Princeton offense, in which Paul dominated the ball and the team primarily relied on pick-and-rolls. Paul only played for half a game before he went down with his ankle injury in Bower's debut as coach against the Portland Trail Blazers.
"I'm in practice every day watching the offense, and I like a lot of the new things we have, " Paul said. "Hopefully, when I come back, I will fit right back into the system, and we don't have to fit into what I do."
