At one point I read there was extreme swelling and they were waiting for the to subside, apparently it did and it revealed the damage.

The medical staff is going to catch hell either way.. they withheld the Bulaga status and got blasted. In this case, they went with what they knew, reported it through the ranks only to find it was incorrect and going to catch hell.

That said.. yes, this year has seemed suspect at best in reporting the injuries.

I must be missing something. Why are we entitled to know the exact injury immediately?

Anyhow, I hope it is not an ACL tear. Jerel Worthy himself said it wasn't serious so I'm hoping he's right.

It's funny how fans are so demanding of immediate info on player injuries when that info is least likely to be accurate. Then they flip out when that info turns out later to have been inaccurate.

I'm not demanding immediate info of injuries. I'm just surprised by how many times it has taken weeks for our medical staff to determine a player needed surgery, or how many times our players have received 2nd opinions that directed them to have surgery while our medical staff did not. It's been an odd season when it comes to injuries on our team, that's all.

just sayin, ACLs and junk are usually reported in the next day or two, how this took weeks is really weird.

I know it's just a couple weeks, but if I were a player, I'd want to start rehabbing that knee ASAP.
