Will Tayshaun Prince play in Game Three tonight?
“I will give whatever I can give,” he said. “It felt better today (Thursday), but at the same time, I didn’t go at game speed. I am not the type of person to give excuses about injuries because I know both Rasheed and Rip (Hamilton) played hurt for us this season.
“But this is the pivotal game, so if I am not getting anything going early, I will let Arron (Afflalo) and those guys take the load.” Via The Detroit News
Read into this if you will, especially considering all that’s been going around regarding Prince’s playoff non production.
He’s not injured enough to not start (remember the streak), but if he’s not productive he will let Afflalo play (injury or not). Sounds a bit like an excuse is already in play for Prince.
I don’t know about you, but I would love for Tayshaun to have huge game, we need him to, but with the injury and how he’s been playing lately I wouldn’t mind Afflalo and Herrmann for that matter to try to see what they can do.
Could Tayshaun be worried about being moved in the offseason? He may not be untouchable anymore.
