    Saw this. Very unfortunate but at least we know it wasn’t mishandled.

    Will he be able to come back for the finals against the Celtics?

    Should have gotten him the surgery right away instead of f***ing around half the season. Glad it seems like something he can come back 100% from. Get well quick Tari!

    damn, so he has a tumor in his leg (not cancer) and it's clearly bothering him so they're taking it out. Hope he makes a full recovery.

    It’s fine. The season is about development and even the dreams of playoffs are highly remote.

    In addition to the team’s general inconsistency (esp on the road and especially Jalen), the biggest challenges have been the bench minutes at backup big and guard minutes.

    Next year Adams fills the former and Eason frees up SF minutes to allow Cam / Amen / Green to fill the latter. And the inconsistency will be helped by experience and either Jalen’ improvement or a rotation can be.

    Big picture … things are still really good, even if not perfect.

    It’s a big surgery when you are having a rod placed in your leg. It likely means it’s a large portion of bone they’re removing. This by no means will be an easy rehab, hoping he comes back 100%.

    It's not possible to come back 100% when you have screws, plates, or rods in your body. His body will never feel the same unless that rod is removed again.

    Surgeons enjoy messing with human bodies for profit, so this isn't well understood.

    Paul George had a traumatic compound fracture and has been playing all-NBA level basketball with a rod in his leg ever since.

    And he has kept quiet that he isn't 100%.

    I appreciate the abuse, rudeness, and low IQ response.

    There is no relevance to how many posts I have on a forum and what my knowledge is in life.

    Feel free to say or do something logical and then wait for my next response. I can only assume you're not scared of someone with 2 posts.
