Jeez. This is just.... terrible.Tendinosis, sometimes called chronic tendinitis, tendinosus, chronic tendinopathy, or chronic tendon injury, is damage to a tendon at a cellular level (the suffix "osis" implies a pathology of chronic degeneration without inflammation). It is thought to be caused by microtears in the connective tissue in and around the tendon, leading to an increase in tendon repair cells. This may lead to reduced tensile strength, thus increasing the chance of tendon rupture. Tendinosis is often misdiagnosed as tendinitis due to the limited understanding of tendinopathies by the medical community. Classical characteristics of "tendinosis" include degenerative changes in the collagenous matrix, hypercellularity, hypervascularity, and a lack of inflammatory cells which has challenged the original misnomer "tendinitis".

****. ****. **** **** ****.
It's time to put all our eggs in Paul George's basket...
"We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.
am i the only one thinking that either our medical staff ****ed up or we are not getting the full story? was the medical staff too late to understand the situation when he was playing with pain? an injury this serious can't come out of nowhere, can it?
This is going to be a tough season to watch. Just wait until George Hill has to sit for a while too.
We'll really see what coach Vogel is made of now.
Granger's always been a tough player. Remember the game against Boston shortly after signing his $60 million dollar contract where he lost his front teeth? Ran off the court and came right back to shoot the free throws. It is killing him to sit on the bench and see this team struggle without him and I have no doubt that he would be out there if he felt like he could help and not hinder the team. Twelve weeks puts him back around 1/22. I know we are all a little concerned right now but I think Vogel putting Green back with the second unit will be a good thing and insertinf Young in the starting lineup will allow us to develop more of an inside-out game rather than dribble down, one pass and a bad jumper. Hibbert needs to assert himself offensively and that will free up our perimeter players for more drives to the basket.
We're seriously about to see what Paul George is made of. Pretty tough to put all of this on him at such an early stage of his career, but I dont think he has a choice now.
I'm sure we'll continue to start Young, but we really should start Lance. No reason not to at this point, and the first unit could use his playmaking.
If things go the right way, as in Hill's injury not worsening or other injuries popping up, this is not a season killer if Granger can actually return. Sure they win less games, but if Granger makes it back before playoff time, and the rest of them team has kept things afloat (they should), then they can deal some damage.
Hibbert really needs to be worth his max contract, regardless of what's going on around him. And Paul George has to take that step forward offensively. West and Hill I'm not worried about, everyone else has a whole lot of work to do.
He may come back sooner, but if I were the Bulls I'd just wait till next season to make sure he's completely 100%.
I refuse to start Sam Young anymore. It was a laughable idea to begin with. Lance needs to **** or get off the pot as our starting 2 guard, George Hill technically backs him up. Paul needs to move to the 3 with gerald greene as his backup... and sam young needs to stay on the bench where he can't hurt us too bad. Tighten up the rotation, batten down the hatches, and prepare for a long and bloody war. We can still win it (the war, not an NBA championship... currently).

Do the Pacers even have pieces to make a trade for an scorer or something? man if they could only be under the cap
As someone who had had surgery on my knees 13 weeks rehab is not that unusual , but odd part is that long is usually after a surgical procedure. I think Danny had a scope and Pacers are not reporting it. Yes I think they are hiding something from fans and media.
This is eerily taking on a Mike Dunleavy simliarity.
Its like some of you guys have never experienced tendonitiis.
I'm not surprised by the diagnosis, treatment, or prognosis. I'm more surprised at the reactions here.
The primary cure for swelling in the tendons is rest, and a lot of it. Surgery won't fix inflamed tendons. It could help with the source of the problem, or it could remove scar tissue, but the swelling takes about as long to calm down as it took to get unbearable in the first place. Its a gradual injury with gradual healing.
Reality is that he's probably needed to take this kind of time off for a while, but he's gutted it out as long as he could until no other choice remained. That would be similar to my experience when I finally had to redshirt one of my college track seasons after years of competing at 90%, then 80%, then 70% as the dull ache gnawed away at explosiveness. For what its worth, 20 years later and I still end up in physcial therapy or are forced to take 6-8 weeks off of running due to my knee tendonitiis which returns every couple of years.
Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
And life itself, rushing over me
Life itself, the wind in black elms,
Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
I agree with you though, if the Bulls can get a top 15 pick, they have a chance to get another wing OR athletic big on that team that if Rose can ever come back to being as good as he was, they'd be in great shape.
Jeff Taylor or Draymond Green would come in handy right about now.
