[Introduction] The Rockets used an 8-man rotation strategy this season, but this strategy itself is stretched and consumes a lot of players
, If you unfortunately encounter a large area of injuries, there will be problems with player rotation.
This has been the case with the Rockets recently. Garcia, Harden, and Parsons have been sick or injured one after another, which forced Mai Shuai to increase the number of rotations.
The Rockets currently have Harden, Parsons, Howard, Parsons, Beverly, Asik, Caspi and Garcia in their daily rotation.
Garcia was affected by a bad cold and sat out the previous game, allowing Jones a chance to get playing time, but surprisingly performed well, which should help him enter the Rockets’ rotation early.
Garcia rested for a few days. Although his body has not yet fully recovered, he made his comeback in today’s game between the Rockets and the 76ers. He played, but Parsons may have a truce.
Parsons has also been suffering from back injuries recently, but there are too many injuries in the team and his performance is not stable, so he has not truce.
Today the Rockets are a guest in Philadelphia to challenge the 76ers, and tomorrow they will play back-to-back against the Knicks. Parsons said before that he may not be able to participate in both games. Today he played against the 76ers, so the possibility of missing tomorrow’s game is relatively high.
Compared with Garcia and Parsons, Harden’s injuries are much more serious. His waist, wrists and feet are all afflicted by injuries. Among them, the injuries to his feet are very serious, and sometimes he can’t even move.
In order for him to get better as soon as possible, Mai Shuai did not arrange all the training for him. Although Harden did not play today, he said that as long as he played, he would go all out and forget the pain.
“Once the game starts, I will focus on the game and help the team win, the adrenaline will come up, but after the game, I will feel pain,” Harden said frankly.
Not long after the start of the game, many Rockets players suffered injuries. Some people pointed the finger at Mai Shuai, thinking that his 8-man rotation mechanism not only made the main players play too long, but also consumed a lot of body, and was not conducive to the development of bench players.
Play and practice.
Excessive use of chief generals has resulted in increased injuries. There are lessons to be learned from such cases.
In the past two seasons, the Bulls coach liked to let the main player and several main substitutes stay on the court for a long time in the regular season. As a result, there were extensive injuries in each season.
So before the Rockets are flooded with injuries, quickly adjust the rotation mechanism.
