    "For an ankle." Lol damn you must have never had a sprained ankle. It takes a couple months for a grade 2 so he's actually ahead of schedule. Even after the healing it still takes a while to mentally get back to being the same player. Paul George explains this in the interview with Sengun. He had a broken leg, but even for a badly sprained ankle, it's difficult to play and make moves you normally make without thinking about getting hurt again.

    He's running but you can see he's in pain after he was done. It looks like he won't play in a Rockets game for another month. Definitely not ready for full contact in practice, etc.

    Hard to tell if that's limping or just fatigue.

    This is shaping up to be a lost year for Amen. Not good.

    Im excited to see him on the court soon and dont be surprised if we see the second coming of Magic... Don't think I'm trolling or joking. He has all the tools available to be THAT guy and not only that, he proved last season who he is. Think about a less skilled version of Jalen, which is already a generational thing.

    My order based on potential:

    1-Jalen
    2-Amen
    3-Bari
    4-Cam
    5-Tari
    6-Jeenathan Williams
    7- Nate Hinton
    8- Aaron Holiday (still young)

    Never underestimate the heart of a late bloomer.

    Weak ankles are bad for basketball players.

    Let him heal fully even if it takes another month or two, we don't really need to rush him in anyway

    So after more than a month of no intense running, Amen is doing "lots" of running and looks exhausted in a 10 second video.
    How can this be

    I'm going to go watch the Vipers late this month. Hopefully Amen and Cam are there. :D

    Get him the Steph treatment, he turned out pretty decent*
