    Also, gotta love how everyone is taking the two weeks. Dude could be back by next Monday.
    I think it's safe to say the team will take the two weeks.

    The injuries just keep coming. I hope the can get healthy one day, so Monty and Dell can show what their team can do.

    Let's just be safe with this one. Stress anything worries me, but stress reaction is a lot better than stress fracture, and can heal with proper care. No need to rush this.

    this is actually his first real injury during the season....dude got an accidental elbow to the temple....hardly his fault. He'll be ok. I think they are gonna take their sweet time letting him recover rather than let him back on the court ASAP like they do for Rivers because honestly (and this is coming from someone who thinks Rivers will be a beast eventually) Davis is most important player on this team....plus although we do see the drop off when he's not on the floor....they are much deeper at the frontcourt than backcourt.

    So yeah I say let him heal as much as possible. This is the official Growing Pains year....take the lumps now...let these Rookies and new young guys get a year under Monty's system...keep adding pieces and we'll be where we want to be. No need to rush anything at this point.

    Is that time frame for an actual stress fracture or for this stress fracture precursor?

    He needs to bulk up more. The trainers need to make him drink a lot of protein drinks.

    I think about 99% of people on this board would agree.

    He'll get stronger as time goes on, so injuries won't happen as much.

    For a stress reaction somewhere in the ankle.

    If they got it early and it's in a favorable location, less than 8. These things are hard to diagnose early because they can seem like just a sore ankle or whatever. We'll see.

    Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.

    So are you saying you expect him back after the 2 week timetable? If so, how close to that 8 week mark?

    I have no expectations based on specific knowledge.

    I expect 8-16 weeks based on broad research. How soon it is depends on stuff I don't think any of us know. I'm just exposing the research for consideration, and essentially saying that 8 weeks is in the cards, so don't gobble down the 2 weeks hook, line, and sinker.

    A cornea scratch, for instance, takes a day to two to work itself out. Smith played 48 hours after getting one. So that bore out. Maybe he would have sat an additional day. Just presenting the same sort of info about an injury that we know very little about.

    It's asking too much?

    I'm tired of lies. If Gordon has two plus months of rehab, do not say you are 4-6 weeks. If Davis has to eight weeks of recovery, do not say it is 2 weeks.

    Well after today it will officially be the start of week 3. That 1 - 2 week crap is just about out of the window already.

    Today makes 2 weeks since he played his last game. I predict we'll see him some time next week. Or maybe not. Maybe our FO is doing what the Warrior's FO was doing with Bogut.

    I know that. But the point is, the FO didn't let on to what was really going on.
