The recap of the day: Has Doc Rivers threatened?
It’s new and therefore very fresh, this is the recap of the day made on TrashTalk. Some like to get the news one by one, others prefer to have a big paper summarizing everything, so here you can see everything our pens wrote today but what disappeared under the radar, without forgetting our small contribution to social networks and the evening program.
What you can read on TrashTalk starting this morning
- Jalen Brunson has everything to make them happy: it’s clean, smart, talented and productive, the Knicks are already under a spell.
- Blazers lose against Miami… and Damian Lillard is injured: back to Earth for Portland, there’s only one undefeated franchise left this season.
- Four losses in four games for the Lakers: the alarm clock didn’t go off last night and the fire alarm took over.
- What if Victor Wembanyama ends up… at the Pelicans? The Lakers could lose their Draft pick in 2023. It’s really hard to be a Los Angeles fan right now.
- Speaking of Victor, the NBA will broadcast the Metropolitans 92 games this season: this time, for sure, the hype of the French phenomenon knows no bounds.
- Théo Maledon came out of his box against the Knicks: 15 pawns in 16 minutes, Charlotte is home to the French leaders.
- Ziaire Williams out 1 more month: knee continues to whistle, patience recommended.
- Karl-Anthony Towns wants to improve Anthony Edwards’ diet: it’s good, but he has a diploma as a KAT dietitian?
- Pascal Siakam’s season started well: 25 pawns, 9 rebounds and 8 assists per night, the king of the North enters the campaign.
- Remember Andrew Bynum: this force of nature was full of talent, but damaged by one knee and one more than doubt. Happy birthday Drew.
- DeMar DeRozan, from what was considered “the” player to All-NBA player: “I want to inspire those who have lost confidence in themselves”.
- Joel Embiid, Pascal Siakam and Christian Koloko wrote a page of history: three Cameroonians on the same floor, first in the NBA.
- Delon Wright out 6 to 8 weeks: blow for Wizards, who obviously have no right to be happy
Other information to remember this Thursday
- After suffering an eye injury during the first game of the regular season, Darius Garland has resumed practice with the Cavs. Nothing crazy, it’s just a shootaround, but it’s a first step toward getting back to the courts. A return could be made on Friday on the Boston side, although at this moment nothing has been formally done. (source: ESPN)
- We have news from Eric Bledsoe. If we are to believe Sporting, the former Clippers player took a ticket to China to join the Shanghai Sharks. However, we only learned at the end of the afternoon by TMZ that Bledsoe was arrested for domestic violence, accused of slapping his partner in the face. It’s hard to say how everything will evolve, but what seems certain is that we won’t see Eric in the NBA again.
- Magic’s infirmary continues to fill up. The last knock on the door? Point guard Cole Anthony suffered an oblique muscle injury, according to Shams Charania. Few details have been given on the duration of his absence, but between Jalen Suggs, Markelle Fultz or even Jonathan Isaac and Gary Harris, there are still many wounds in Mickey country.
Orlando Magic guard Cole Anthony suffered an oblique muscle injury and a timetable will be determined as he undergoes further evaluation, sources said. @TheAthletic @Estadyum.

- With four losses in five games, the Sixers are experiencing a major misfire. What would warm Doc Rivers’ seat? Obviously, if we’re to believe Zach Lowe (ESPN) and Bill Simmons (The Ringer), there are already NBA rumors about a potential coaching change in Philadelphia. Nothing imminent knowing that the season has resumed for only a week, but we advise the Doc to quickly find solutions because the pressure is obvious on his shoulders. Little important note, Daryl Morey was not the one who picked Rivers to replace Brett Brown at the end of 2020. We said it, we said nothing…
