Its a torn acl. Out 6/8 months.
That really shouldn't effect his draft status that much.
February + 8 Months = Being ready for the season ( or maybe only missing the first month or so if they are extra careful). He should be finished with surgury on well on the road to recovery before the draft and that will give all the teams/doctors plenty of time to evaluate him.
Heres a good read on ACL injuries to basketball players and their recovery.
Hate to hear that news about Nerlins injury. But i wonder if the Cats can gain from his slight drop in the draft.. End up with Shabazz and him would be huge..i know Cho thinking about that. Kemba, Shabazz, MKG, Nerlins and Mullins.. sheesh.. the assists Kemba will get.
You guys would really want us to use our pick on somebody this year that TORE HIS ACL? This injury changes everything. I don't know about you guys, but I want a pick that I know hasn't had the worse injury you can possibly have.
I mean its still bad, but he could have MCL/PCL tears as well. Also have a patella tendon to worry about and even things like broken kneecaps or micro fractures
He's lucky its ONLY the ACL
