I don't keep up well enough with league news and Sportscenter stuff, so I don't really know much about Tracy McGrady's health issues and his back. Here is what I was able to find so far:

Games Played:
97-98 Season - 64
98-99 Season - 49
99-00 Season - 79
00-01 Season - 77
01-02 Season - 76
02-03 Season - 75
03-04 Season - 67

Injury History

In a random search, I found a few mentions of 3 separate back injuries.... "back spasms", "back contusion", and "lower back injury", but not much detail. I think the "lower back injury" is the one we care about?

Here is a link to an article that says:

Quote:
As with Grant Hill's left ankle, Tracy McGrady's back is worlds better now than it was a year ago. Of course, as with Hill's left ankle, the Magic will be privately worried about McGrady's back every day of every season, no matter how well McGrady seems to have progressed with the help of an Orlando back specialist. "Once you have a bad back, you have a bad back," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "You don't get a good back the next day. I think the difference between Tracy this year and last year is that he understands that." McGrady, by all accounts, has been vigilant all summer in his rehabilitation, which involves a special machine that stretches T-Mac's vertebrae.
Here is another article that mentions the rehab:

Quote:
I am not having the problems I had the past two years," McGrady said. "This is from the elbow I received in the Lakers game (on Dec. 15). It's just a contusion, badly bruised. As far as what I've been going through the past few years, I've solved that problem. I found a doctor (in Orlando) and he got me on a machine that really stretches my back out and put my disc back in place.
More info would be wonderful. Please post what you know....

I agree. This is a concern, but don't forget that all players traded must undergo a medical exam.

Yeah, like Grant Hill did.

What do we say to Steve, Cuttino and Cato after we rescind the trade?

You can go ahead and chalk up every game that TMac misses as a loss.

The same thing they told Robert Horry and Matt Bullard after the Sean Elliot trade was rescinded.

Well you're the Doctor, you tell us.

Seriously, all I know is back problems are scary so if the trade goes down the Rockets better get a super clean bill of health. Back problems at such a young age are scary. Larry Johnson anyone?
