D. Rose with an ankle sprain - playing it smart
Posted on Nov 03, 2014
For you Bulls fans out there, and I certainly count myself as one of them, we all heard a collective "gasp" when we saw D. Rose land after a jump shot and limp off the court favoring his right foot, unable to bear weight on the left ankle. But after Xrays were negative for a fracture, he then wramed up for the next game and is a maybe for Tuesday's game. He played it smart - rest until you find out how bad the injury is, otherwise you could make it worse. When is it the right time to stay off of an ankle, and when is it right to keep playing?
