    Default Fields seeing hand specialist

    I know you opened this expecting a punch line about "butter fingers" landry but doug smith says so.

    Doug Smith: #Raptors Landry Fields seeing hand specialist, issue with right hand. No prognosis for Saturday game yet Twitter @SmithRaps

    http://hoopshype.com/rumors.htm


    Another case of a player playing through it and being a detriment to the team, or just a PR move?

    you decide.


    also... BYE BYE MIKE BROWN. good riddance.I hear SVG is looking for a job. lol

    only way Fields starts hitting jumpers is if he gets transplanted hands...his shot looks horrid.. he should be seeing Dave Hopla not a Doc.

    SVG/JVG wont get the lakers job... it will be sloan or D'antoni maybe Phil Jackson comes back but it def. wont be SVG

    Its not so much the jumpers that concern me, its the dropped passes and blown layups. It makes alot of sense. Pass hits his hand, makes it hurt trys to gather it. No dice.

    Even if he gets his hand fixed, he's still a scrub ... sad

    I once saw this movie about a kid who breaks his arm and then after he can throw really hard and the Chicago Cubs sign him to the team and he becomes their starting pitcher and he's awesome and everyone loves him and no one complains about how bad his contract or how he was nothing more than a throw-away player on a not so great team and the only reason he's here is because he was used as a not-so-clever gambit by a not-so-clever GM.

    I hope things turn out like that movie

    there are number of things far less serious than ALS that could be causing his issues. That's like asking someone taking a tylenol sinus tab if they have AIDs.

    Likely causes of hand issues for pro sports athletes.

    Tendonitis - in the wrist.
    Ulnar nerve entrapment - causes weakness in the hands.
    Carpal Tunnel

    Or he could have just hurt his (swear word)ing hand

    You're right, I was simply putting out what crossed my mind. Dumb of me. Deleted post.

    its a coping mechanism brought on by the extreme anxiety of failed expectations ... again
