Default Gray Out Indefinitely

Bigs with bad hearts. It's an epidemic. Performance enhancing drugs?

TORONTO -- Toronto Raptors centre Aaron Gray is out of action indefinitely while he undergoes further monitoring and testing for a rapid heart rate.

The Raptors decided to withhold Gray from game action after consulting with league cardiologist Dr. Allan Schwartz. Gray will still be able to participate in full contact practices, the team said Friday.

Gray signed with the Raptors on Dec. 11 as a free agent. He had nine rebounds in 32 minutes over two pre-season games.

Doubt it's PEDs. They just have huge bodies. When you're in the top 1% you tend to be higher risk for stuff like this.

I would guess that the concern would not be about physical contact, but rather the cardio stresses which can be more severe in game actions. He can be asked to run without running hard in practices, whereas in games there could be multiple all-out sprints required.

Shouldn't they have caught this during his medical? How do you miss cardiac dysrhythmia when you're examining a player? Didn't they ask for his medical reports from the Hornets and Bulls?

makes sense
it's just that i associate full contact with "full out" play

We should've signed Erin Gray instead.

Still an improvement over Aaron lol.


Seriously though, hopefully this doesn't keep him out of the lineup for too long. He isn't much of a player, but the Raptors could use his size some nights and you never want to see a player sidelined by this kind of issue.
