Hopefully it's nothing. Would hate to see yet another injury for Kyrie...

Thanks for sharing. That is great news. With his history I feared the worst. Glad to learn it is just a bruise...

Bruises can last quite a while an after and impact play, not necessarily quality, but require adaptation that might be discordant with how one organizes oneself through motion. That, it seems to me, is logical. Kyrie is a genius. Once the worst passes, I am certain that he will be in the high zone of effectiveness judged by the bar he has already set. Effective but different, even if we do not see it.

These repeated injuries to a meaningful degree must be related to how he plays, his beyond creativity, ability to alter direction and orientation of his body fluidly on the move. Would he be better off, stay on the court longer and stop breaking himself down, by toning it down. Listen, the things he does that are magical cost. If he kept that stuff to a minimum, his effectiveness would have to benefit, simply because he would not be breaking himself down so often. Ironic, breaking people down through attacks that dazzle take him away from the game that he is so good at. Life, at its best, is about choice. Sports, how we play and enjoy ourselves in them can be addictive. I am not criticizing Kyrie's game. I hope that he is free to alter it. Speaking for myself, knowing what I know now, I'd like to think that I could. However, with regard to such matters, there are no do-overs.
