    Time for AOC to step up. He's got a chance to earn more minutes.
    Yep.

    4:11 left in the game. He went for a putback on a Javin miss. You can see him in the background clenching his hand while the free throw camera is zoomed in.

    Bummer.

    Seriously though, it sounds like it’s way too early to get a timeline on his return. Hopefully we’ll get some updates after the surgery happens. Alex has a great opportunity to step up.
    Bet mine was the worst without losing an actual piece of the hand. Got pictures too...


    For real though, this sucks for everyone. Just hope he recovers well and can get back to doing what he loves on time.

    Yes exactly. He went to the bench and Jose worked on him for awhile. I mentioned it in the in-game thread because I was concerned - been around too long not to worry about these things.

    I broke my 5th metacarpal playing softball. Not dislocated, not displaced. I opted out of surgery, 3 weeks in a cast. It was tender for another month or so but no physical therapy.

    I slipped on ice and my pinky finger left hand got caught between pavement and my hip. Broke the puppy good. Almost exactly two years ago in a nasty ice storm. Only now not causing pain anymore on the regular.

    This is clearly apropos of nothing else on this thread.

    Duke officially says it was a 4th metacarpal bone and that though he is out indefinitely, he is expected to return later this season.

    DURHAM -- Duke men’s basketball freshman forward Wendell Moore Jr., underwent successful surgery on Monday to repair a broken fourth metacarpal in his right hand. He is out indefinitely, but expected to return this season.

    Dr. David Ruch performed the procedure and was assisted by Dr. Marc Richard.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    i got it.

    But even an insincere invitation is an invitation that I will accept.

    Mine was a knee instead of a finger and it wasn't an break, just wear and tear. Still I'm sure you would like to hear about it as much as I would like to pass along my experience. I'll white it out so those of you who don't have the courtesy to read it won't have to.













    There.

    I also totally got it. I just chose to ignore it in the spirit of this board and our ability to take any topic wildly off course.

    Best of luck to Moore.

    Another segue - my phone autocorrected "Moore" to "Moose.". New nickname?

    Better news than I expected. At least he can keep in shape and participate in team activities. This gives a nitche for someone else to step. AOC??

    He will be able to run and stay in shape but this kind of injury will affect him coming back - particularly shooting the ball. Maybe a mid February return.

    When I was a young 8 I accidentally chopped off my fourth finger tip, right hand. It got flung 50 feet in the back yard. They found it before the dogs did and a team of surgeons sewed it back on.

    25 years ago I got a stress fracture in my right shin. Kept running for a while. Not smart. Then I also got a stress fracture in my fifth metatarsal, right foot.

    Last month a catfish viciously stabbed me with his barb in the palm of my right hand.

    Based on my extensive experience, Wendell’s break is painful and not fun. Although he is out indefinitely, he should be back this season.

    You could just cut and paste this every time...

    Maybe but the anti-hand-rejection drugs are a drag. Prosthetics have gotten way cool tho or a hook would would be pretty rad especially when telling pirate jokes. Btw do you know why pirates are called pirates? Because they ARRRRR of course!
