I noticed this little tidbit at the end of ESPN's the Weekend Dime:
A similar situation, albeit with a different appendage, is playing out in Indiana. Point guard Darrell Armstrong, a new spark for the Pacers at 38, needs rotator-cuff surgery, but the severity (and recovery time) attached to a shoulder operation would likely end his career. So Armstrong plays on, grinding through the pain and hoping to complete at least one more full season before moving into coaching.
Now maybe I missed this information earlier on because it sounds like this has been a chronic, on-going issue. It doesn't make me hopefull that DA can help us with the shooting over the course of a long season.
