I know the surgeon said it has nothing to do with his old injury and Avery said they aren’t going to be “super conservative” about Brook’s timetable for return, but is anyone else nervous about Brook’ being able to return and stay healthy? As we’ve seen in his absence, we really need Brook back on the court in Black and White.
Not concerned…YET. I know last season, they kept us in the dark about his injuries, but that was because we were trying to trade for Dwight Howard. This year, there’s no such trade were looking at for Brook, so I think they’re being honest and just VERY VERY cautious. It’s great news that the MRI and x-rays came back negative and that the sprain is in a completely different spot from last year’s injuries.
Definitely not time to be concerned and I’s be willing to bet anyone that he’ll be in the lineup Tuesday against the Knicks.
Yeah, Max, it’s definitely a little unsettling at this point. I have complete faith in the organization (though I didn’t at the beginning of the season) but even the most optimistic of people have to worry a little bit. It’s not like we’re holding Blatche out for a week with an injury…it is, after all, Lopez, a man who has trouble with this foot before and had season ending surgery on the foot too. What if he’s the next Yao Ming?
