    How does Knee Pain he can play through lead to being out 3 months?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tendinosis

    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.[1] 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".[2]
    Jeez. This is just.... terrible.

    Just an injection and out for 3 months? wtf?
    It isn't the injection, its the inflamed tendon that's causing the issue. Walking/running/jumping all aggravate the injury, so they have to shelve him and go through a strict rehab process in order to strengthen other muscles to take the strain off of his tendon.

    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?

    It's growing on me as I am seeing the new freshmen come back to me in a month and I can give a better assessment. If we suck bad enough to get Tony Mitchell I would be so happy and sad I hate losing but that kid will be special IMO. He is as good of leaper as Gerald Green and actually knows how to play basketball and using his leaping ability. I just hope he keeps improving. He would be a perfect 4 for the Pacers IMO.

    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 think Rose comes back before Danny, Rose is already running and doing things.

    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.

    ACL injuries are a lot tougher to come back from. 9-12 MONTH process. Plus a player like Rose who's mostly athleticism, it's going to be hard for him to adjust to that as well.

    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).
    Reggie Miller is a God. Period.

    Passion. Pride. Pacers.

    It's ALWAYS Miller Time.

    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

    Well it only took Adrian Peterson few months to get back so there is a chance, I agree with you if I was the Bulls I tank this year so I can find a Robin for Rose through the draft.

    True, but football is a bit of a different sport. Yes there's a lot of cutting in both sports, but there's a LOT more jumping, stopping, going, quick reactions, quick change of direction in basketball. Also, in football, as a RB you play about 1/2 of the game, and then get a week off to rest. In basketball you've got 32-38 minutes, playing offense and defense. And then you either have back-to-backs, or just one day off.

    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.
