    Default Amir Johnson ankle surgery

    Amir Johnson will have ankle surgery in the next few weeks and he should be ready to go for training camp. I really hope he will get better soon, BC made a big bet signing him last year.

    man that sucks royally. Poor Amir. I hope he recovers quickly and that he is his old self next season - when ever that is.
    Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

    He must've aggravated what was originally just a sprain by playing through the pain. Should've shut him down at that time. Hope the rehab goes well.

    As an aside I am not sure that offering Barbosa an extension (in the link) is a particularly smart thing to do at his salary range and the new cba. BC is going to have to curtail his urges to give out contracts at first opportunity.

    That's very thoughtful!

    I have a hard time understanding what the author is trying to say with the following quote:


    "Assuming there is a training camp in early October, Colangelo said Johnson will be fully recovered to participate. "

    Is he saying that Amir will be sufficiently recovered so he will be able to participate, or is he saying that in order to participate he will have to be fully recovered. It's a bit unclear to me. How'd you guys read it?

    it's the player's option. BC can't do anything about it

    I think it means he will be ready for training camp

    Why did he wait so long to get this done? Would you not get an MRI and address the problem right away?

    Surgery is always the last option. You don't rush into it... unless you are certain it is the ONLY option on the table. He probably was given a certain time to watch how he recovered naturaly, if that goal was not met, his doctors probably made surgery the next course.

    He is hinting at the potential lockout situation. Basically saying that if negotiations get settled and no lockout occurs, Amir will be ready to go for training camp.
