Ellis' Career in Jeopardy?

Rumour has it that his recent injury wasn't caused from playing basketball but a from motorcycle accident. Ugh ... if see this getting ugly fast. J-Will all over again?

The Cohn Zohn: Can you explain what the deltoid ligament does?

The Doc: The deltoid ligament is one of the strongest ligaments in the body. It attaches the middle part of the lower leg bone to the heel. It's a major force stabilizing the whole ankle joint.

Zohn: Does it seem likely Ellis tore the ligament playing pickup basketball?

Doc: To have a fall or a twist that tears the deltoid ligament you usually need something more severe than turning your ankle playing basketball.

Zohn: Give an example of how someone could tear the ligament.

Doc: You're walking along and you put your foot in a grate. The grate is stable and doesn't move. You fall sideways. It would take that kind of fall to do it.

Zohn: Are you skeptical Ellis tore the deltoid ligament playing basketball?

Doc: Yes.

Note: I did not ask The Doc what the Warriors should do about Ellis -- fine, suspend, dump him. That is not The Doc's expertise, and the $66 million the Warriors owe Ellis is their business and the moral dilemma they find themselves in is their moral dilemma. I did ask The Doc about the implications of the injury. Is Ellis assured of being a top-notch player after he comes back?

Doc: Under the best circumstances to repair the deltoid ligament to a perfect orientation and length is difficult. The difficulty is compounded by rehabilitation where you try to return it some some flexibility. Ellis could get a stiff ankle or a tight ankle. When he tries to pivot he might stumble. He might not be able to push off as much or accelerate or explode to dunk. He might not be as explosive as he is now -- his game is based on super quickness and acceleration. I am not saying he's through. But this is a bad injury.

Zohn: The Warriors are saying he'll be playing in three months. Is that realistic?

Doc: I don't believe so. Based on the little I've read, to play at an NBA level in three months is very unrealistic. He has a long road ahead of him.

The warriors would probably suck without him, but it is a good thing they signed Maggette.

Maggette doesnt help them much, the only way theyre going places in the future is if Ellis continues to improve and becomes a big Wade like star, Biedrins improved to become a 15+14 type center, and either Wright or Randolph turn into their Bosh to turn their team into something like the NOH have going on with their big 3/4

So this was a motorcycle thing? He just fell off and landed the wrong way?

What a fuckin dumby

Monta Admits He Lied

Quote:
Warriors guard Monta Ellis has admitted that he lied about how he injured his left ankle, according to Contra Costa Times.

Golden State now knows that Ellis' ankle injury, which was repaired during surgery on Aug. 27, was not sustained "in a gym," and "it happened out doors and not while playing basketball."

The source did not reveal what Ellis told management he was doing when he got hurt, only that he "was scared to tell the truth at first."
REALGM


I guess this basically confirms the motorcycle theory.

He actually thought that he could lie about it?

That's not an excuse. Hell, every kid from a young age is told it's better to just come out clean than lie.

On a sidenote, if I'm an athlete, I stay off a motorcycle. It seems that nothing ever good comes out of them. Jay Williams, Ben Rothlesberger, Monta Ellis. Just avoid it and ride it when you retire or something.

Thats a real shame...To bad he didn't get a college education though. McDonald's cook is all he's qualified to do off the court.

Bump


Seen this, apparantly, Ellis and his agent are daring the Warriors to void his contract and may even try to force trade.

I wonder if Monta is gonna regain his old form or if he will be another Jay Williams.

Baron and Monta are made to play together.
