he has been gone so long from the game it would be best to get him some reps so he can play in 2014. Remember, one of the challenge she was alleged to have experienced after his layoff was getting used to the speed of the game. he needs to practice if he can do so with exacerbating the injury.
I really like the part that said he was accepting a down low role. Defense rebounding and points around the basket. I just think he could really excel in that role. I think he would be a 6'9" 230+ version of Carelton Scott who just stays down low. That prospect excited me.
I do not think Plantar Fasciitis goes away easily. IIRC, it is exacerbated by having a large body pounding away up and down the floor. Man, this blows. I really like rooting for him. Odd that vision is not the problem it seems. So far adjusting to school and the Plantar Fasciitis have been a bigger issue.
