D'Angelo Russell Sprains Thumb, To Get MRI On Saturday 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Nov 16, 2019 5:10 pm

D'Angelo Russell will get an MRI on Saturday after spraining his thumb during the Golden State Warriors' 105-100 loss to the Boston Celtics.


X-rays returned negative.


"It sucks. I've said it before, you live that every day. That injury don't go away when you walk off the floor. It sucks to keep seeing guys go down, but we got that bug right now. So just gotta keep fighting, do all you can to stay healthy. But sometimes, s--- just happens," said Draymond Green about the Warriors' rash of injuries.

It seems to me that the number of injuries this season are way above normal. What is going on? See the list here. foxsports.com/nbs/injuries.

The number of hand injuries alone to important players is bizarre.

Curry - broken hand
Hayward - broken hand
LaVert - sprained thumb
Russell - sprained thumb
Bagley - broken thumb
Lowry - broken thumb

Draymond Green sneezes, will be re-evaluated in 2-3 months.
