I would like to introduce you to Healthy Landry Fields. He is the perfect fit for the starting lineup.
Healthy Landry Fields can:
-> shoot 49% from 2 39% from 3 and 77% from the free throw line
-> rebound at a per 36 of 7.4
-> make the smart pass
-> play lock down defense
-> move terrifically off the ball
-> set good screens
The good news is....
wait that was the bad news...This is an important point when dealing with peripheral nerve injuries. The healing process almost invariably requires an extensive amount of time to occur. It is important for patients not to lose hope during this time. It is vital that they participate in their exercises, keeping the affected muscles and joints flexible and ready to be used once again when the axons regrow into them. It is not unusual for patients to undergo a lengthy, complex, peripheral nerve reconstruction procedure, only to see no evidence of recovery for a year or more. This can be immensely frustrating for the patient. Unfortunately, there is nothing in medical science currently that can make these axons grow any faster. Perhaps it is best to think of this delay all as part of the healing process, paving the road to getting better!
The good news is the Landry Fields we get this season will be the one he is for the rest of his career.
Let's hope he has a good summer and we can put all this small forward talk to rest
