    Was this just routine “maintenance” or did he have an undisclosed injury that was partially responsible for his lack of playing time down the stretch?

    Brian, was this at all bothering him during regular season play?

    Nonetheless, this will be a set back in his development.

    Any idea how long he’s had that injury?

    I hope he recovers well. I also hope this doesn’t hurt his off season conditioning. Get Well Big Guy!

    For athletes you can have a sprained ankle or brain surgery and the recovery time is always stated as four to six weeks.

    I don’t think this will significantly hamper his off-season conditioning.

    He has until October and the physical therapy involved in coming back from this type of injury might just give him the routine and focus he needs to apply himself properly.
