    RW dealing with headaches?

    Had been wondering why he was not getting any playing time yet. cbssportsline said he had been dealing with headaches. Hope he gets that problem taken care of soon so he can go show everyone how good of a player he is!

    Only one of their three games has anything to do with headaches. He dressed for the first two. he missed the first week of camp and he wasn't that amazing in preseason. However, if it means anything...Terrence Jones hasn't played a minute either even though he was starting at the end of preseason.

    Pretty sure the Harden trade ruined any chance for Royce to get decent minutes in the next 2-3 months. Aldrich came over in the trade too and they've been playing him a little.

    If he does not get things together quickly, he will never get to show people how good he can be. The NBA is a business.

    I love Royce, but I don't think he was ready for the NBA quite yet. Best of luck to him though, and I hope he proves me wrong.

    Re: RW dealing with headaches?

    It's early in the season and any number of things could happen to impact his playing time or lack thereof, so I'm not too worried about it yet. I hope he gets the migraine problem under control, though. Migraine episodes are absolutely debilitating.

    Hope he gets healthy and gets some quality minutes, but as the op has said the NBA is a business.

    3 games into his rookie season, and he's already a bust. Classic CF overthinkers.

    I think he's redshirting.

    A lot of people who simply do not understand how the NBA works. Lots of high picks take multiple years to find a niche. A rookie not playing immediately is such a non issue it is laughable.
