Not a lot of question marks for Seattle with a lot of guys already ruled out going into the weekend. One player to keep an eye on is Osvaldo Alonso, and coach Sigi Schmid talked about how the midfielder is doing in an earlier post.
Mike Magee, the reigning MVP, is the player to watch for Chicago, having missed the past three games. The team has a 1.38 PPG when he plays (2-1-5) and a 0.60 PPG when he doesn’t (0-2-3).
Here is a reminder of the injury timelines…
Rose (4-6 weeks)
Traore (4-6 weeks)
Remick (2-4 weeks)
Bowen (N/A, based on league protocol and recovery from concussion symptoms)
Lowe (N/A, not specified but just starting to jog again)
Parsemain (N/A, not expected back this season)
