Horrible news.

I hate to be an ass about it, but it seems like he still hasn't learned to control himself. It doesn't look good for his future PG aspirations (if he had any). Can't believe it happened in training camp :cry:

So what happened was he hit his head on Brandan Wright's hip while trying to split a double team according to ESPN.

Hearing about this injury reminded me of something he said in an interview.

Q: Was there anything in particular you picked up on in spite of having to leave early with the strained back?

A: No, because as I did I couldn't really do anything for three weeks to a whole month, so it was really just best for me to sit out and wait until the season comes back because I have so much to put on the table this season.

Q: How did that injury come about?

A: It was just one of those days I woke up, couldn't move for like three days. As I got moving I went to the doctor to see what it was and it was something I was born with. So there's nothing I could really do about it.

Yea I just saw this on ESPN. Its sad cause they were just talking about how good this week was with no major injuries to anyone on the team and now this happens. Hopefully nothing major and just hope it was just for precationary reasons.

Terrible news. Looks like Belinelli is going to start. We lost Monta for an unknown amount of time and we don't have Jackson for 7 games. We're going to need our guards to step up since we lost our best two not named Baron.

Ouch. Terrible news, indeed...


Hope the kid gets alright soon. I frankly don't care how long he'll be out of the lineup, just want him to recover fully.

Sounds like it could potentially be very serious. Hope the guy is alright and gets back to 100%

well.. from hitting his head on a hip.. then the ground.. i dont think he fucked up his spine or anything... i just pray that he is fine as TMC said earlier.. no matter if hes out for the season.. just as long as hes okay.

ESPN reported the am that he left the hospital on his own. Diagnosis is a neck sprain. Will be out for a few days as a precaution (likely still hurt and nervous anyway). This is very good news.

Thank god. The news about not being able to move were alarming, to say the least.... He better takes some time off before trying to come back.
