    So we’re waiting on an X-ray to determine break, sprain or bruise right?

    My guess is 4-6 weeks, but here's some fantasy sports doctor with 18k followers saying it's possible it's just a couple of games but might be 4+ weeks. No idea if this guy is legit.

    Time for Boogie to step up like Mutombo did when Yao got hurt during the 22 game win streak.

    i have some hope because Wood has Gumby like features. The last time he rolled the ankle, it looked really bad and he was only out a few games

    From what I read on twitter since he could walk hopefully its not crazy. We got super easy sched and he gets ignored on offense anyway so we dont need him for the timebeing.

    Boogie is def gonna step up.

    Wood is a keeper, let him take as much time possible to rest. no need to rush him back. he's already proven himself.

    More and more reasoning to have kept Allen. They have to move Tucker and Ben for a big soon.

    At least we're no longer doing the **** where we say he's only going to be out a few games and then it's a month. We're done with that, right?

    The way he came down on the ankle, I have concerns about a partial tear of the ligament - specifically the anterior talofibular ligament. A grade 3 sprain can be ruled out by his movements immediately after the incident. This is not a rupture. This looks like a mild-to-medium severity Grade II sprain. Tomorrow's bruising and swelling will dictate his overall timeline on a return. I expect a functional recovery in 4 weeks.***

    ***I have no medical experience but just undertook an exhaustive 5-minute online medical study.

    I cannot speak for others, but personally, I trust the "King of the D&D" far more than any alleged "doctor."

    Oh god I hope he’s okay. Definitely is gonna bounce back. He needs to be more of a spot up shooter this guy. Quit trying to hard. You’re already a starter on a perennial playoff team. Get better soon brother.
