How serious is the joint sprain?
Based on my experience with my son (2 shoulder surgeries), Chavis will likely be out for more than the 10-day IL. It should take 3-4 weeks to heal and be fine after that. A sprain generally means some stretching of the ligaments has occurred and the shoulder joint is less stable. If he rushes back he could be more prone to a full shoulder dislocation that can do very serious damage (labrum tear, etc)
