View Full Version : Report out of Detroit: Rasheed's plantar fachitis is officially gone

As I said BEFORE the series, the Oakland press has reported that playing every other day on his foot has finally torn the inflamed ligament that causes plantar facshitis. Rasheed is still not reported as fully healthy, but its all uphill from here. He will now be able to move on it as he used to.

There's something about tearing a ligament that doesn't sound like a good thing to me. :uhoh:

"The tear usually happens further forward than where the pain of plantar fasciitis usually occurs. It is often found 2 to 4 centimeters in front of the attachment of the plantar fascia into the calcaneus (heel bone). The patient will often recall feeling or hearing a "pop". When examined there may be pain when the toes are passively bent upwards (dorsiflexed). The usual treatment for this injury is non-weight bearing for 1 - 3 weeks in a cast and total casting for about 4 - 6 weeks. Full recovery will take 7 to 12 weeks. "

Ok, so.... will he be severely hindered? Less hindered? The same? Will he even be playing?
