I feel like a lot of people are with me when I say this… but whenever it comes to a Kevin Garnett injury, I always assume the world is ending and I dial it back from there. I’ve recently gone from “MY GOD HE NEEDS HIS FOOT AMPUTATED” to “I hope he’s back for the playoffs” thanks to reassuring comments from the Celtics that this is not a long-term injury (which, on doctor’s orders, I’ve simply accepted).
“He had a boot on on the plane the other night and it was bothering him at the end of the game in Dallas. I wish it was an ankle sprain, I’d feel better,” said Gorman. “The fact it’s inflammation, it’s something that requires rest — and a lot of rest. Hopefully it won’t be something that as soon as he’s active again the inflammation becomes active again.”
“I’m concerned. I was concerned the other night on the air when everyone on the Celtics staff kept referring to it as a foot injury as opposed to a sprained ankle. A sprained ankle I could live with; a foot injury is scary.”
So Cedric Maxwell is concerned… and now Mike Gorman is concerned. And now I feel like Danny Ainge is Kevin Bacon in Animal House
Yeah, remain calm. Easy for you to say.
