Wow we're already talking lottery after 5 games the only way we get a lottery pick this year is if we trade for one
You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....
So...I was at Detour in Carmel tonight to watch the Colts game, and who should come in but Danny. Here's the bad news. He can't put any weight on his bad leg. Not even to walk from table to table. He came in on crutches and hopped from table to table while leaning on chairs. So I'm gonna have to say something more than just a shot was done to that knee. He was moving around without crutches at the home opener last Saturday.

Like I said at time the shot story was reported I've had knee surgeries 13 weeks is about the right rehab time after a scope .
You can't get champagne from a garden hose.
Why didn't they actually get his knee fixed properly in the offseason? They said it happened during the Miami series. This is 6 months between then and now. 6 months. I mean, why wait until the season opener to give him this injection?
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
Or throw in a first-round pick and flip it for a max-level point guard...
After a surgery wouldn't there be a brace of some kind even if the doctor said "crutches and no weight on it"? Or would swelling preclude that?
I agree though... more than likely more was done than an injection. Out 3 months for an injection treatment sounds suspect.
Nuntius was right for a while. I was wrong for a while. But ultimately I was right and Frank Vogel has been let go.
"A player who makes a team great is more valuable than a great player. Losing yourself in the group, for the good of the group, that’s teamwork."
The injection was probably for short term. Some injuries just require rest. Nothing else.
Sittin on top of the world!
i hope this doesn't turn into another one of those j.o./bender issues of a chronic knee situation that never gets better, only worse.
i have seen that show a few times too many already.
as far the impact it has had- i don't know, i understand danny isn't the point guard but his absence likely has had an impact in the way the team operates overall.
frankly, when i pulled some stats from usa today and saw these stats- it is surprising we have even won 1 game "They are 25th in the league in scoring, 26th in field goal percentage, 28th in assists and 30th in the league in turnovers."
those number MUST get better and quickly or they are going to be getting beaten a bunch this year. they HAVE been playing some good defense this year so there is that but, fix everything else that is broken or screwed up and that includes pretty much everything else.

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.
Who and what would be served by keeping surgery a secret?
