I've had all kinds of ankle rolls, from a slight tweak where you can tape it and keep playing, to a devastating tear of all 3 ligaments where my entire foot (ankle to toes) turned black from blood pooling under the skin, and having to be on crutches for weeks. This one is on the lighter side. I'd guess a week before I can walk without pain, and probably 2 weeks before I can consider playing ball again. I'll certainly be able to to some upper body workouts, and maybe some core stuff pretty much immediately.
Nick, is that you?

Injuries suck, dude, especially ones that make walking awful. There are weight machines that work your lower body without straining your ankle, just gotta be creative.

Like what does CLE even do until the end of the season? It feels like every move that they've made were duct tape fixes on a sinking ship.

As a short-time subscriber to the Athletic (they had a free trial deal a little while ago), it's awesome and I wish I could justify the cost.

Well at least LBJ can say that he got a ring in Cleveland and hopefully he can find somewhere fun to be until he can't do nothin no more.

We offered him like, what, $40 million before he thought he was worth more and is currently playing at the league vet minimum lol http://m.startribune.com/shabazz-mu...wolf/447838463/

edit: if he's released, I highly doubt he'll be picked up anywhere for anything but the league minimum.

Shabazz can be an efficient bench scorer & wing rebounder. That's basically it. The dude has averaged exactly one assist per 36 minutes over the course of his career.
It's ridiculous, like, IDK why the rest of his team doesn't just get back on defense if he takes a pass, he's like a black hole with a left hookshot. Also when asked by reporters about how he can get more minutes he never mentions anything besides scoring. His defense is atrocious and he thinks the ONLY way to contribute on the floor is scoring. Ridiculous. Was excited when he decided to come back for the vet minimum, but he can totally leave now, I'm fine with that.

I know this isn't on people's radar anymore, but if anyone is still wondering if Mirotic said something unforgivable to Portis before getting clocked, the answer is no.
Did he literally ask Portis to punch him in the face as hard as he could?

Injuries suck a lot and nobody in sports deserves to get injured. My definition of "stinkin' rich" is "anyone who earns more in one year than I will in the rest of my life" sorry for not being clear about that. Pretty sure that means "every NBA player alive" but this is a dumb derail so let's talk about

Thibs isn't dumb enough to go after Derrick Rose since Tyus is doing his job, so where is Rose gonna wind up?

OK sure, but then you're implying that you have no sympathy for any NBA player just because they make a lot of money and that's not a very nice thing to say! Be happy for them! They do jumps and spins for the whole world to fall in love with
My bad, I did not mean to imply that. Injuries suck and I do not wish them on any sports athlete, and even worse, going from the season that IT had with Boston before getting traded and then traded again in the same season is awful, especially for his family.
