Could have been worse. Sounds like he should be fine for the opener on the 27th.

That's good to hear and it'll give the young guys some more time and Paul might start.

Everyone seems hopeful by this news, but we know how he likes to continue playing and allowing things to linger. We'll see.

Yea, these day-to-day injuries last full seasons in Indiana.

Very true, no matter if it is the Pacers or the Colts.

Although this is just a sprained ankle which in my experience they can linger for a while, but overall as long as you tape it up after the first couple of days it doesn't really have much affect on a player.

The important thing with a sprained ankle, having suffered about 3 or 4 myself, is what you do once you take pressure off of it. When the injury usually happens, you will eventually feel the shot of adrenaline and numbness at the ankle that allows you to keep playing through.

But once you sit down, and kick up your feet, that's when the swelling and the blue and purple colors come in. So hopefully, they immediately started putting ice on it to minimize the swelling as much as possible.

I see it being a little longer than that.

the pacers medical staff has the ability of junior college nursing program. I think that is one aspect we can all agree on.

I used to think like that but apparently they now have brought tyler back healthy. Some of the other seemingly medical mishaps were due to players who did not want to play. Dun seems to have survived his career threatening injury as well.
