    At around the same time, Jeremy Crawford said the opposite about a long rest. Since he’s the rules expert, I think that this post should be removed from the site and Jeremy’s should be left up. Or a disclaimer could be added, noting that this answer is incorrect.

    Actually, Mike even got the answer correct two years earlier.

    In general, Mike’s answers are “as far as I can remember” or “I don’t have the rules with me,” so they should always be taken with a grain of salt. Jeremy’s will always be correct, since he’s the rules guy.
