Nemanja Bjelica (left mid-foot sprain) will be inactive for Friday’s game against the Heat.
Bjelica had surgery on that foot in March and this isn’t great news for him. For Gorgui Dieng, a struggling luxury stash, who could theoretically be slid into two backup buckets of minutes, this could be a game-changer and he’s worth a speculative add to see if he can get out of the doghouse. Keep in mind that for Dieng that department has been pretty, um, rough.
Update: Darren Wolfson is plugged in and offers this assessment. If it holds up then Dieng will have to elbow his way into minutes, which was always the case but takes a little bit of relevance away from this development.
FWIW, source close to Bjelica: "(It's) not bad." Sure Thibs will address it postgame. https://t.co/6faoG1PrOh
