    Default Is it really an ear infection?

    Tyler hasn't played in a week, and isn't even traveling with the team to attend tonight's game in New York. He hasn't been on the bench. Supposedly, he's out with an ear infection.

    Isn't this a bit much for an ear infection? Will the story change? Has this been covered at all by local/national media, or has it been missed so far? Anybody got contacts or heard any reputable rumors?

    I'm just curious. I don't remember the last time a player missed this many games for an "injury" that seems so minor.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Isn't there an issue with flying with an ear infection (due to pressure)?
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    It's an inner ear infection. If it's really bad, he probably has really poor balance.

    Hansbrough is not Tinsley, it is really an ear infection.
    *removed* Just keep politics and religion completely out of it, please.

    They said last night during the game that Hans cannot fly due to the ear infection that is why he is not playing tonight. No conspiracy.

    It is apparent , you have never had a really bad ear infection then...

    otherwise you wouldn't be asking this..

    Once diagnosed and taking the proper antibiotics, it can take a week or 2 to fully get feeling better and have it under control..
    Sometimes the ear can STILL be draining up to 3 weeks or more depending on the type and severity ..

    And yes, it affects balance BIGTIME.. and there is NO WAY IN HECK one should ever fly in an airplane with an ear infection..

    No! I had an ear infection burst my eardrum.

    I'm just curious. I don't remember the last time a player missed this many games for an "injury" that seems so minor.

    Believe me, it's not minor!

    It's already been said, but inner ear infections can really knock you out; I've had one. And if you have one that affects your equilibrium, you're completely out of commission.


    I had a flashback of Tyler attempting to put a contact in his eye directly after picking it up from the court a few games ago.

    I know people who have had inner ear infections that have lasted up to two weeks and had to be hospitalized because of it.

    It's kind of like the flu in that some people get it worse than others.

    Well, props to you for just being willing to ask the question.

    Tyler's personality doesn't fit the profile here, however.

    I got an ear infection once at the beginning of a 7 day lake trip. Seven days later I got out of the bed. It was beyond agony.

    Good one!

    For those who don't know he's not being serious, it's an inside joke. We had one guy on here say a concussion was just a headache.

    Ok, fair enough.

    I guess my question was more along the lines of "Isn't an ear infection pretty treatable?" I mean I know we're trying to go easy on the antibacterials to prevent superbug outbreaks, but I thought we were pretty good at dealing with infections these days. It wasn't meant to be an attack on Tyler's manliness or pain tolerance.

    It's just that I've reached the point where I'll never again believe the Pacers' public announcements as to player injuries.

    Well, Tyler, I hope your ear infection clears up soon!

    Ear infections can do lots of damage and the superbugs are making a strong comeback. They're like the Taliban in that respect.

    I also don't believe the Pacer announcements as to player injuries. If you listen to Pacer announcements three starters this season would be Bender, Tinsley, and O'Neal.

    Why isn't he? I expected him to be going nuts after basically everything he's said about McRoberts has come to be proven.

    "I keep wondering the same thing. Last week they had the 4th worst record in the league, had an 11.9 percent chance of winning the lottery and were in line to land a franchise type player like Derrick Favors or DeMarcus Cousins. This week? They have a 1.7 percent chance of winning the lottery, have the 8th worst record and are in line to draft Cole Aldrich or Greg Monroe. Way to go Jim O'Brien. Rest Danny Granger the rest of the season (if it isn't too late) and give Josh McRoberts lots of minutes. That ought to do it." - Chad Ford on winning meaningless games

    Way to go Jim, you may have just put our franchise back another 4+ years.

    I have no clue. Always thought his opinions were interesting, and really understood things from a good perspective.

    From my background, I've had problems with ear infections to the point that I was unable to drive for a few days.

    I was also unfortunate enough to have one flare up when I was in Houston on business, and had to fly with it. It was an extremely painful experience.
