Grant Hill: Misdiagnosis Destroyed Ankle, Career

by April 28, 2011

Grant Hill, on Jason Whitlock’s podcast, said the Detroit Pistons mismanaged his ankle injury, possibly due to standard Isiah Thomas set. PistonPowered has the transcript: “‘I (had been) told everything was fine. I even found out that certain team doctors were questioning whether I was really hurt, thinking I was soft or whatever. This was after I had pulled myself from Game 2 against the Heat. At that time, when I found out I had broken my ankle, as crazy as this sounds, I was relieved. I finally had some confirmation, I finally had proof that I’m really not making it up.'”
