It's for the best. I like that he'll get the next 12 days to just rest it, and not try to work it.

I'm for it just because I want to see our other players get some PT. If only they weren't all injured...

Is Bender ever going to play in the preseason?

At this point, I doubt it. And I won't care, if he's back on the 3rd. Now, if he starts missing real games, then even I will write him off after too long.

Well, Sax proved on Tuesday that he can play the Four, so just throw him in there. :laugh:

As for Bender, how is it that JB sits out because of a sore knee from a pickup game, and he's a baby, but JO sits out because of a sore foot from a pickup game, and it's a wise decision?

Because JO's an MVP calibure player that we can't afford to get more hurt before the season starts, and Bender isn't? :shrug:

You see, I'm not happy with this at all.

How many training camps and preseasons has Bender been a part of since joining the Pacers "years ago"?

Not many. And that's a problem. He starts out way behind and that causes everyone to make excuses and suddenly Donnie, et. al. have let him stay around "just a little longer" to try to determine what he's got to offer.

If he's injured, he doesn't play. Again. And he can't help us. But he also can't be seen enough for us to evaluate him, nor for any other team to evaluate him so we would be able to dump him if we wanted.

So what do we have? From another team's perspective, a player over $6M who is probably overpayed even more than Croshere is at over $8M.

And that all boils down to two things. We can't play him because he's injured and we can't dump him because no one has seen enough to justify anything near his salary.

And that's exactly where I DON'T want to find ourselves with Bender this year.

As for JO, foot injuries can be very troublesome things. I just hope there is not a diagnosis of plantar's fasciaitis that is not being revealed.

Yeah that would really suck. Kept Rasheed from being full form last year. I heard that it is really painful. Feels like running on top of glass shards.

From Indystar today I think they said the problem with the foot is on top of the foot.

I've had plantar fasciitis and I've had both knees scoped - the planta fasciitis was much more painful.

That's more of a chronic / overuse injury. However, a sprain in the foot could deteriorate into plantar fasciitis rather quickly because of the 'limping' - an unnatural motion that would put additional stress on other parts of the feet.

If he wasn't really ready to start camp, then resting right now is a very, very good idea. Even missing the first ten games is better than playing and then struggling with a chronic injury all season.

Plantar fasciitis sucks. Painful. The only thing that fixed it for me was rest.

I found "turf toe" to be harder to get rid of, though, and just as painful.

Why it's a
Metatarsalphalangeal Joint Sprain (http://www.emedx.com/emedx/diagnosis_information/foot-ankle_disorders/turf_toe_outline.htm)!

Basically a badly jammed big toe.

Mine hurt every time I planted my right foot or stopped suddenly. I played on it for a while, but it kept getting worse, and worse. And the my achilles started to get stiff.

So I finally gave up and took some time off.

Then I think I got a stress fracture because I was trying not to walk on that side of my foot.

It took about 3 months before I could play basketball again, and 4 months later it's not quite fully healed.

I don't even know how I did it originally. It might of just been over-use. Or I vaguely remember stubbing it trying to take the stairs 3 at a time at home.

so you can over-use a toe huh...:rolleyes: I wonder if it is as painful as a ingrown toenail. I have one now and it hurts like a *%$!

I never knew just how much I used it until I hurt it.

Even backpedaling down the court stresses it, both bending and impact. At least I had an excuse for loafing on defense. :-)
