Darius down to 225

From Mike Barrett's blog:

Speaking of Darius, he continues to workout at a frantic pace, and was going through drills with trainer Jay Jensen on the other court during the games Wednesday. He hasn't been cleared to play, but is running now with the team during conditioning drills. Miles, who topped out at 259 pounds following his micro-fracture knee surgery, is now down to a slim 225.(emphasis added) He has high hopes for a return, but still has a long road ahead of him. There are varying degrees of micro-fracture surgery, and Darius' was on the very serious end. Say what you want, you cannot fault his effort in attempting to get back into shape. I've seen it every day.

This has me thinking. A 225 lb. Miles is much more effective than the "Buffet of Badness" he was before. If Oden is truly down for the count, maybe Miles could come in as a 3rd or 4th option on offense.

I'm not a Miles fan in the least, but just trying to make lemonade out of lemons....
