NBA schedule action for the week of March 13, 2023
This week is the first of the NCAA basketball tournaments and both Kevin Durant and Luka Dončić are affected by unusual injuries. Some sports fans might think this is a good week to retire from the NBA.
Be sure to check out the hooper for college men and women, but it would not be wise to ignore the NBA for seven days and return to reshuffled tables without knowing why teams are in their current positions. There are only first-four games through Thursday, so there’s plenty of time to catch some NBA action.
Some key players will miss some time. Injuries will be the main reason, but that final sprint after the All-Star Game requires some load management. Yes, favorable seeding is important, but no NBA championship favorite will be able to win the trophy without a relatively healthy roster. That’s true no matter how tight the table is in the Western Conference
While basketball fans should certainly be indulging in the college game this week, there are many important pro games to be played. While Ernie, Kenny, and Chuck won’t be in attendance, NBA fans should be sure to at least keep up with the pros’ winners and losers.
*Disclaimer: It is the first weekend of the NCAA tournament. Nobody cares about your “load management” problems at the moment.
