Same injury that ended Benders career. Guy on the radio said Duncan has had it for 10 years in his shoulder. He said if they can control it he will be fine if not it could be a career ender. Guy stresses its serious and he would be imobilelized for almost the whole 3 months. Likely won't be in playing shape for another month if the PCP works.
Normal recovery is 2-3 months, full recovery is 6-8 months, and there's an 80% chance that he'll be able to resume physical activity. I don't have a source but that's what I read about tendinosis injections.

There's no reason to make a false public statement about injury treatment, so I doubt there is more to it than the injection. Someone who has access should find a treatment plan for the injury to see if it recommends crutches/no weight.
