    zero hope of this dude having a long, healthy career...he would have to change the way he plays and lose significant weight

    6’6, 285, and every basket involves him using a ton of athleticism...sorry, but I don’t see it for him health-wise which is a shame because his talent is undeniable...he can not be stopped at the rim...got dudes bouncing off him like little babies

    CAN YOU IMAGINE!! If the Rockets said a player had mild injury that no one should worry about, would be out a couple weeks as a precaution THEN comeback a few days later and say he would be out 6-8 weeks because he tore his mensicus, Clutchfans would be set on fire.

    @pippendagimp and @Zboy and @J.R. would demand a copy of the medical report.

    dang. that sucks. crazy talent but it'll all go to waste if this continues to be a problem for him

    pretty safe to assume, the dunk contest is out of the question. no way pelicans would allow it lol

    I've never thought Zion would be a transcendent player, and this is one of the reasons. Heavy frame on an undersized player that is almost entirely dependent on his explosion.

    If he is able to stay healthy I still fully expect him to be an all-star level player, but a complimentary piece on an actual contender.

    Sorry to hear that. I guess the prognosis could have been worse.

    I'm not even sure losing weight will help. I didn't even realize until I watched this video how this dude walks.

    The Pelicans have had much worse doctors and medical staff than the Rockets.

    Yeah I know. A lot of teams have worse doctors than the Rockets. Rocket have rehabilitated injury Prone players like Ryno, EG and Nene. I'm even giving credit to the Rockets credit for keeping CP3 healthy-ish.
