“KG Would Play If the Playoffs Were Today”

RedsArmyAdmin April 1, 2009 Uncategorized 9 Comments

In a further attempt to douse the flames that followed the news about KG sitting out a couple more weeks….

Danny Ainge taped a segment for Celtics Now and declared that KG would play if the playoffs were today.

So it looks like the C's are just being cautious.  Please everyone… step back from the ledge.

    I almost jumped off the ledge after reading all 70 comments
    I am on the positive side of things or at least I will try….
    I still have faith in our Celtics even without KG!

    I uploaded this on my youtube account Chris Sheriden reports there is loose cartilage behind KG’s knee and a strained tendon behind the knee according to KG’s agent Andy Miller

    BINGO!–
    This makes perfect sense now, with what we know.
    When a piece of cartilage (or bone) gets loose in the knee, it can get stuck in the joint at any time, causing severe pain, and can even lock it up. That would explain why KG suddenly couldn’t use that leg, even though there was no apparent trauma or malrotation. It would also explain ongoing swelling and pain.
    If he also had tendon strain, I would think that would be better after 6 weeks… though he might have reinjured it. The key problem, if this report is true, is probably the loose body (cartilage) in the joint. Now this can be effectively removed arthroscopically, so I wonder why that wasn’t done right away….? Maybe KG didn’t want it, thinking he would get better. Problem is, this NEVER gets better by itself. That floating body will be there forever unless it’s removed.
    So there’s good and bad news here, ASSUMING this report is true, and it does sound true. The good: KG will be 100% OK someday (i.e., next season). The bad: if he hasn’t had the loose body removed, he is NOT necessarily going to be OK for the playoffs. At any moment, he could go down. And there’s no knowing when, because this problem can flare up whenever it feels like it, unrelated to any injury or clear causative event.
    This all sounds right. The mystery may be solved.

    Is this the same Ajay from a while back? The Kobe lover?
    If so, I don’t trust his sources, even if they are legitimate.

    Does make sense.

    This rest he gets now will be more significant anyways …Doc said he wasnt even going to “practice him” so the knee will get even more rest …i doubt they even have him riding the stationary bike right now …just let the body do its thing

    Celtics-relax you guys are starting to sound like us laker fans…….please beat LeHype and the cavs and lets have a rematch with everyone at 100 %. I’ll tell bynum to lay off the bunnies during June :)

    Hi Celtic fans.
    Laker fan here.
    Sorry to hear about KGs knee injury woes, as you know, our own Andrew Bynum has been battling knee injuries as well these past 2 seasons. I’m not posting here to flame, be condescening or rap on the Celtics for whatever they did or didn’t do lately.
    I was just wondering if you guys just could swing by and pick up a Celtic lost soul who is currently wandering about our Laker forums. He goes by the name of “Paul Garnett” and we just want to make sure he safely finds his way back amongst his friends:
