Any press is good press. Actually, that's not true. At all. But yes, pimp away - thanks!
On that note...
I'm presenting a small talk on osteoarthritis for a practice in healthcare class. I'd like to reuse the images from the post on pedey's knee to depict possible surgical options (i.e. the arthroscopy, microfacture, and OATS images). Would this usage be ok with you? Obviously, I will cite you and your posts as references.

Blog is really entertaining, congrats.

Any thoughts on Markelle Fultz's "scapular muscle imbalance" or is that not really in the realm of what you look at? I'm curious and I would bet a lot of other people are too.

Thanks for the feedback - I might try to get something out on Fultz in the next couple of days

Don't mean to be the greedy reader, but any plans to touch on the sort of procedures they've likely done/are doing to save Miller's leg?
Yeah, that’s a whole post unto itself. I kind of laid low the last couple days because I figured all anyone wanted to read/think about was OMGJimmyGIsGoneWereAllGonnaDie but I think I’ll get back at it

Like probably millions of others, I'm really saddened by the Watson injury. Is there anything you can share on recovery time and prognosis?

Really depends on any concomitant injuries (meniscus, cartilage, etc) but odds are in his favor for a full recovery. He should be back at full football speed in 7-9 months, which would get him back for preseason-ish next year

Does this injury have a greater impact on certain movements specific to blocking, running, catching, etc?

Yeah I’m like the human harbinger of bad news. Anything anyone wants me to write about in the near future that I haven’t covered?
Selfish reasons, but a lisfranc article would be cool. I’m recovering from Aug 3rd surgery. Follow up op to get the hardware out is Dec 14. Early on when people asked, I’d respond asking if they ever heard of lisfranc. I eventually just explained “broke foot wakeboarding...fractures were minor but there was some dislocation, so its a slow recovery”.

I've been two years since Lisfranc surgery. I had much metal put in my foot for dislocation and fractures but it's good now though it stills swells. Allen Craig knows how long the recovery is.

Is your hardware still in there? Mine comes out in a few weeks.

And how’d you do it?

The hardware (metal plate and six screws)is still in. I'm an old guy so as little work as possible. No problems so far. I tripped down one stair and turned the top of my foot into bone debris. Said it looked like a football turf injury, The story of Dr Lisfranc is great. He pioneered the amputation of the the foot as Napoleon's surgeon. Best of luck.

DRS, I know he's not on a regional team but if you have time would you mind doing a post on the shazier injury? I'm curious how an impact like that could have led to (hopefully temporary) paralysis. Thanks!

Calling the Good Doctor on Brown's torn calf injury and if he can be in any way effective come playoffs.

Is there any way that Chao could have actually been right about the open dislocation? I reread that article and it said the thumb would be a bad finger to have it happen to, but doesn't say why.

No fucking way he could have had an open dislocation of the basal joint of his thumb and be playing in the next two months, much less days.

The lesson, as always- I am not always right but Chao is a discredited hack who should not be clicked on

Awesome, I knew I shouldn’t have taken the bait, but good to have one less worry.
