Horford has strained knee. Should be ok for opener

This is some good news regarding frontcourt depth.




"Jon will be back hopefully in a short period of time after straining his left knee," Beilein said. "Right now it is too early to predict, however, we are optimistic he will return for the season opener."

I didn't say any of those things.  I just don't think a recently and oft-injured player needs to put in a ton of minutes before the season really gets going.  I just don't need him to get hurt in a game against Bradley or Western Michigan.

On another note, Caris LeVert is getting rave reviews from pretty much everyone who has seen him play. One insider on Rivals went so far as to refer to him as a future NBA player.

Beilein may have found another gem.

I think the last traditional "big" who was really good, stayed healthy, and whose existence didn't get erased was Juwan Howard.  Michigan has almost never been THE destination for 5-star bigs.  

During the years that they were a perennial BTC contender, they usually had a tall roster of decent players, but no real stars over 6-7.
