Reath expected to play

Illawarra Hawks star Duop Reath is expected to play in tonight’s clash with the Perth Wildcats after a hip injury limited him to just eight minutes in Monday’s game.

The Illawarra Mercury reported Reath “trained in full” yesterday and he is “expected to play on Thursday night”. Click here for the full story.  

Morrison demands better starts

Perth Wildcats coach Scott Morrison has put the pressure on his players to find a solution to the club’s slow starts this season.

“There’s no sense tip toeing around it, it’s definitely an issue and it’s going to come back to haunt us if it hasn’t already. We need to get it fixed,” Morrison said via The West Australian.

Delly changing habits 

Melbourne United coach Dean Vickerman says Matthew Dellavedova is learning how to be his best self in United’s system, as he adjusts to a new role and style of play in the NBL.

“We are breaking some habits that he’s developed in his time over there (USA),” Vickerman said via the Courier Mail.

Breakers to build again

After a COVID-19 outbreak saw eight players contract the virus, New Zealand Breakers coach Dan Shamir has declared the club will do what it always does – build back stronger.

“It’s not the first time we have fallen. We need to build, and we will build again,” Shamir said via Stuff.

Injuries no excuse for Taipans

Despite a roster that is ravaged by injuries, Cairns Taipans coach Adam Forde is demanding a no excuses approach from his team.

“We miss them but we’re not sitting here saying ‘wait until those guys are back’. We need to understand what it takes to win. Winning isn’t supposed to be fun, winning is supposed to be hard,” Forde said via the Cairns Post.

Tasmanians in JackJumpers’ future

Tasmanian basketball legend Anthony Stewart believes more Tasmanians will play for the JackJumpers in the future, as further investment is made in developing players from the Apple Isle.

“You’ve got to look at the bigger picture which is that not many Tasmanians right now are ready for that level but with the JackJumpers, along with NBL1 clubs, investing in youth and trying to lift the talent level then it’s going to be an exciting time for the state moving forward,” Stewart said via The Mercury, who have named 26 talented Tassie ballers who could become JackJumpers.
