Anyone worried at all that he may never quite be the same after his injury? The ankle is just such a complex part of the body and its so crucial to a basketball player's success.

I was asking a doctor friend and he said its going to most likely be, "mental". Fractures are better than torn ligaments because they heal completely, but it can be more traumatizing.

the mental aspect is why I believe he should be given extra time to recover from this injury. Make sure the injury heals and there is no setback caused by early return. That will go a long way to fixing the mental aspect.

  • The Truth
Iíve read lots od leg breaking experiences here, and since iíve had one myself i can say none of them really come close to gordons. I agree that it is going to be a mental thing. But if i am gordon, i would be extatic to know that it basically just looked awful. A clean tibia break is no big deal. I expect him to be back by april.
Lotís of you guys mentioned casts and stuff. He is getting screws and plates which are far kore advanced and fasten the healling process, and more imporantly, he can start working out as soon as the swelling goes away(non weighted).

But all thing aside, the season will dictate his return date. If we are really good he might push it to come back, if we end up at 5-8 spot, they will probably shut him down

I don't think so.  Celts have never operated that way.  Gordon comes back when he is medically cleared to play.

George said the same thing. I doubt we see Alley-oops and Heyward when he is well.

I figured I would leave this here as some hope.

Everything Im reading is that bones that break, when they grow back they grow back thicker and stronger.

Hopefully thats true.

He will lose some explosiveness, which sucks for the Cs because they paid him in his prime.  But he was never really an explosive player anyways and so he should be able to adjust.

I've read probably 10-15 doctor opinions on haywards injury and none said anything about losing explosiveness. Do you have any a link to medical prognosis indicating this? Sounds like unsubstantiated speculation to Me

Exactly. No ligament or cartilage damage. If it was his ACL, we would be having a totally different conversation.  Funny, nobody panicked like this when Brady blew out his knee.

I gave up on Hayward for this year. If he comes back it's a bonus, that way I'm not going to be let down hoping he comes back earlier. Everyone's recovery time is different.

While I want GH to have a complete and sound recovery I'm not giving up on seeing him in action this year.

The longer that Kyrie, Big Al and Co. keep this ship sailing gives me hope that we'll see him during this season.
