With most of free agency through I decided to simulate the next season with everyone's current rosters, accurate as of 8-8. A couple issues: the rookies from both 12-13 and 13-14 seasons will count as the same class, players ages will be from the beginning of last season. Should make for a interesting ROY chase. The schedule will also be based off last years schedule. To begin the season my rotation looks like this:
PG Lillard (34), Mo (20), McCollum (15), Watson (0) SG Matthews (25), Crabbe (0), Barton (0) SF Batum (34), Wright (10), Claver (5) PF Aldridge (36), Robinson 12), Freeland (5) C Lopez (34), Leonard (10)
I will not be making any trades, I will not stop other teams from doing so though.
October 30th to November 30th
Robin Lopez develops a sore foot after the Mavs game and will be out 1-2 weeks. Minutes from Lopez distributed to Leonard (30), Matthews (32) Lillard (36), Williams (25) Nov. 19th
Robin Lopez returns, minutes returned to pre-injury levels.
Record at end of November: 8-8
Robin Lopez sprains his neck in the Kings game and will be out 2-4 weeks. Minutes from Lopez distributed to Leonard (30), Matthews (32) Lillard (36), Williams (25)
Record at end of December: 16-13
Lopez comes back! Leonard goes back to the bench, Lopez regains his starting role
Record at end of January: 20-25

Once the season ended I accidentally advanced to the post season and lost the schedule to see W & L vs specific teams.
End of Season Record: 42-40, out of the playoffs. Slated for 13th pick in the draft.
