This could be a blessing in disguise. We'll miss MKG's defense but it will give Jeff Taylor some much needed playing time. Also, MKG will be shooting with just his right hand in practice. That could pay off tremendously down the road.
It's interesting that MKG and Anthony Davis played on the same college team, went 1-2 in the same draft, and have the same injury and are expected to miss the same amount of time.
