This is Not Science--Medical or Otherwise

I know the Blazers keep defending their trainers, doctors, and medical staff as the best there are.   For all I know that may be true.  The rash of injuries might not have to do with poor advice, poor training philosophy, or poor injury rehabilitation.  It really could be coincidence.  I'm not one to say.  But the way Roy is being brought back is absurd and strains credulity.  One day the plan is 15 minutes per game, zero minutes on the 2nd of a back to back (a plan that has already been ignored, playing him nearly 33% more minutes/game on average right out of the gate).  Now the doctors are saying he can play 25 minutes per game, 15-20 minutes on 2nd of a back to back.  In 4 games the medical team has jumped from a total of 15 minutes in back to back games up to 45 minutes in total for back to back games.  A tripling of total minutes for two games in a back to back.  This feels totally arbitrary.  There is no magical formula of course on how to do this but it certainly doesn't seem cautious, conservative or prudent.  Regardless of the medical staff's surgical and diagnostic prowess they and the coaching staff seem wildly cavalier and inconsistent with regards to Roy and minutes played.  It looks unprofessional to me.
