To the best of anyone's knowledge the injury was to his calf. There is no reason at this time to question experts in their field on what was injured.
theres all sorts of reasons to question it. these are the same experts that cleared him to go play. stuff like this happens all the time. its called misdiagonis either to the severity or even the nature of injury or disease.
im sure his drs are looking back at his mris and asking themselves what they missed. im also sure their thinking of clues they had that they didn't consider clues considering what they know now. hindsight is a bitch...… and medicine is not exact science
There's reason perhaps if you have medical expertise. I'm guessing you don't. Speculation like this is terrible!
And as with anything, being medically cleared and not being at risk of an injury is impossible. Nobody knows when someone is completely ready to go back and that isn't what being cleared even means.
were discussing a situation after we know the outcome. of course you don't have to be trained medical to discuss it. if somebody dies of cancer and the original diagnosis was something else you don't have to medical expert to figure out there might be something up with that original diagnosis.
the guy was cleared to play because it was determined by the medical experts that he couldn't do any more permanent harm. it was determined it was his calf. 12 minutes after he tried to play..…. he blew his achilles. youd have to be nuts not to allow speculation the two were connected and that's why the whole world is doing it. the idea you need to be dr to simply raise some questions is absurd.
fwiw....I have spent my entire adult life in health related fields after playing basketball in college and then having a short professional career. ive been surrounded by situations and discussions like this my entire life including seeing specifically dozens of achilles injuries and rehabs up close and firsthand. I don't think that matters tho. id be willing to listen to anybody jot of information or theory regarding this. its a pretty big deal how wrong they had it to send him back out there and have this happen and then be surprised.
as I stated before.... based of my experience and understanding I wouldn't be surprised if this injury had become inevitable considering how fast it went after 2 months rehab. im not saying im right.... im just raising the point its possible. if he was going to need surgery after the original injury against Houston then theoretically its better it happened now then later and its better it happened trying to play in the finals then some pickup game in august. that's the point im making and if im wrong then so what
