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.December 6, 2012 at 4:29 pm #50037
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.December 6, 2012 at 10:27 pm #50049
I’m starting to worry a tiny bit given his history, but they just don’t want to rush hm back. We’ve clearly struggled without him and the season goes down the drain if he makes whatever it is worse.December 6, 2012 at 10:48 pm #50052
Definitely not time to worry. The hope is that he’ll participate in shoot around tomorrow, practice saturday and play sunday. It was just a case of the Nets playing it safeDecember 6, 2012 at 11:24 pm #50061
It’s never too early to panicDecember 7, 2012 at 12:08 pm #50079
Not sure what to make of Brook not participating in shoot around this morning. I’m still trust trusting the Nets word on this one though.December 7, 2012 at 12:22 pm #50080
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?December 8, 2012 at 5:55 pm #50235
