Pacers rookie forward Tyler Hansbrough traveled to New York on Tuesday to visit with a specialist about his inner ear infection.

Hansbrough has missed 16 of Indiana's last 20 games with the ailment.

He has been dealing with constant dizziness and there is no timetable for his return.

The rookie is averaging 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds per game.
might be old but if not here you go.

He was at the Notre Dame game last night watchin is Handsbrough Bro play against Cincinnati. They kept cutting to him in the stands throughout the game whenever his bro made a play. I'm starting to think the dude isn't as sick as they would lead us to believe.

Just because you can sit down in a seat and watch your little brother play a game of basketball doesnt mean he doesnt have issues.
Thats a lot different than going out onto the floor and playing, running around, and banging on the inside with all those big guys down low. From what I've heard and read he has a mild form of vertigo and he has constant dizziness, balance issues, and such from this. So no, I don't believe there's any sort of conspiracy here.

Tyler's work ethic, hustle and his over all drive to compete wouldn't allow him to sit out hust because. He's a younger Foster, he's playing regardless unless something is rally up. And in this case something is really up. IMO

Let's focus on the key here - you don't go see a NY specialist for this one unless people are stumped. It's not a good update.

I was talking to a work buddy about this and he told me about his own bout. Took them 2 months to even figure out how to fix it, and tons of different docs trying things. He had to adjust how he slept, and he's not a pro-athlete so it's hard to be sure how durable his "fix" was. It could be that if he went out and played NBA ball for a few nights that it would come back.

I'd like to see a cone put on him to keep him from messing with it. I've got a dad whose a veterinarian who can help him with it.

You go see a specialist because he's a million dollar athlete and everyone involved is going crazy watching him sit, including Tyler.
There is no "fix". This isn't a something broken that can be repaired by the "right" treatment. He's got to heal. THat takes time.
At least a couple of people here have posted their own experiences and the healing process.
This is no mystery.
Just that nobody gives a **** when it takes Joe Blow from Kokomo 2 months to get over it..............:p

IC Cold Links: Tyler Hansbrough Situation Continues To Get Worse
http://www.indycornrows.com/2010/2/6/1298144/ic-cold-links-tyler-hansbrough

It's the inner ear infection from Hell.

Indiana Pacers rookie Tyler Hansbrough is seeing his first season in the NBA flushed down the toilet thanks to an infection of which the Midwest has never seen before. It was announced on Friday that Hansbrough is no longer working out at all on the basketball court. He has been ordered by doctors to cease athletic activity for the time-being, effectively setting him back months in the midst of the season.

After coach Jim O'Brien originally said that he hoped that Hansbrough could return to action after the All-Star break, the Pacers coach rescinded those plans after the Pacers defeated the Pistons on Friday.

O'Brien told the Indianapolis Star the following:

"I do not know if we will have Tyler (after the All-Star break)," O'Brien said. "He's not working out at all. If he's able to come back and start working out, that's going to be important, because the fact that he's been told that he is not really allowed to move around, even one on none, is a real setback from the conditioning standpoint."

The ear infection has put up some pretty impressive numbers so far. It has caused Hansbrough to miss 17 of the past 21 games. Fun times for the Pacers first-round draft choice.

Am gonna ask this question in both threads: Why did he get the ear infection?

Is it because he was staying in shape by swimming rather than on the court to keep his shin splints from acting up? If so, there may once again be something to criticize the training staff for.
