    It’s unlikely that he would come back and immediately be able to perform at the same level as when he got hurt. Current draft projections assume a certain amount of development will occur between now and the end of the season, and the injury imposes a setback on that trajectory.

    OTOH, maybe getting injured scares him into thinking he needs to take the money while he can. Who knows. Just wish the best for him.

    Why only 2 banners? I hope he hangs 4.

    When Colin Moran (Pirates) was playing for Carolina in 2012 he made a base-running mistake; ran a stop sign I believe. Mike Fox chewed him out and he went into the dugout, punched a wall and broke a hand. 4th and 5th metacarpals. Missed about a month, IIRC.

    So maybe his defense will not suffer? Then he should be good for a few minutes a game?

    Can he perform at the same level on defense? If so, maybe good for a few minutes a game?

    Not true. Not true. Nate need not be severed. Emily Waner has invented an AI shooting machine which can be attached to his hand.

    Can't find the link right now, but it's out there somewhere.

    Wendell can take my 4th metatarsal bone. All I do is troll on reddit anyways.

    You're not talking about right now, are you? Even the lowest-usage players in basketball have to be able to catch and dribble the ball; there's no such thing as a literal defense-only role in basketball, especially with the way this team moves and spreads the ball around.

    Also, medically, I think the point is to have the finger stabilized in the proper alignment for a few weeks so the finger can heal straight. A hard thwack on the hand as a result of Wendell reaching in while playing defense pretty much ruins the medicine that was being practiced. Too risky.

    Duke is always reticent about giving out specific reports on injuries. Does anyone really know more than it was a bone in his hand that was fractured and that he is haviing surgery to repair it? I looked at the possibilities on a bone chart, (https://www.google.com/search?q=bone...y2Sy0sxOanXM%2) and it is so complicated that I wouldn't trust anyone other than his doctor when it comes to his recovery time. I hope he can come back in 4 to 6 weeks but wouldn't want to see him reinjure the hand because he tried too early a return.

    A kind and selfless offer, but can the Duke doctors really use a foot bone to repair a hand?

    I mean, they gave us the specific bone (4th metacarpal) and that he had surgery yesterday; not sure we can expect to be privy to more than that.

    As for expected timeline, I would never give that out to fans because I wouldn't want him to feel rushed to meet that timeline, if for whatever reason it goes slower than expected. "Indefinitely" is a good way to handle it.

    Duke was much more forthcoming on this injury than say “Kyrie Irving has hurt his big toe”.

    If your looking for a more detailed release of info - be happy that Duke didn't come out and say "upper body" or "lower body" injury.

    Ugh, flame away (or spork) if you must, but I'm keeping the dumbing down of the English language off of this board until y'all pry it from my cold, dead hands.
