There's just got to be more to this story than we currently know...
So let's speculate, shall we?
We know that Ron started practicing his shooting (one-handed) almost immediately after the surgery.
We also know that he's been practicing with the team, although it's not known to what degree.
We know that AL has been strugging a bit as the starting 3 in Ron's absence (with the exception of the second half against Philly the other night).
We know that the team has been winning games since he left, but not impressively (I seem to remember some "doom and gloom" posts on here very recently...
And we know that Ron has been cleared by the doctors, including, apparently, the surgeon that performed the operation.
My guess is that Ron will get very limited minutes tonight. His return is probably largely designed to give an emotional boost to his teammates. I mean, if Ron's actually already PLAYING again, won't his teammates have to look at that determination and respond to it?
Let's remember that Ron is a team captain now.
I's like to hear some of your thoughts on how Ron's return will affect the team's play in the short term.
