Checking in on Gerald Wallace

by Marcel Mutoni

The Bobcats’ high-flying forward, Gerald Wallace, took an inadvertent elbow from Mikki Moore this past Friday and had to be taken off the floor on a stretcher.

It was a frightening moment, as he laid motionless on the ground for a good 15 minutes.

Wallace suffered a grade 3 concussion and probably couldn’t tell you which day of the week it is.

Wallace has had drowsiness, headaches and soreness in the neck and jaw — all post-concussion symptoms

He’s expected to meet with a neurologist this week for a bunch of tests.

Before the injury, G-Wallace was enjoying a career year. Here’s to a speedy recovery.

    For a truly frightening moment, look up Arsenal’s Eduardo.

    They said this was his 4th in 4 years. I’m not sure if I had ever heard of this in the NBA.

    I say let him sit out the rest of the season. The betcats aren’t making the playoffs, so why risk it? 4 concussions in 4 years is no joke. And this is coming from somebody who owns him in fantasy ball.

    Someone needs to check on BETCATS.

    BET sometimes posts like he has a concussion.

    You missed an in-depth discussion of Eduardo’s near limb loss on my Russell Westbrook post yesterday, Tariq. I’m still nauseous thinking about it.

    Not as frightening as gettin’ a head injury. I’ll give ya disgusting but that’s it.

    Since Gerald wears shoulder pads already, couldn’t he wear a helmet for protection in the future? That really sucks for dude.

    Flud: His foot almost FELL OFF.

    Ok, I seriously need to look at this video now. Is it on Youtube?

    I think the term we American’s would use is “Pu*sy Foot”.

    What was Mikki Moore thinking? That had to be a frustation swing of the elbows, because he couldn’t be thinking that was his way out of a double-team

    He might need to retire. Isnt this like his fourth concussion?

  • Krayzie Bone

    The worst one i remember was that one where malone koed the admiral. Gross. Still, nothing is scarrier than Clint Malarchuk or Richard Zednick.

    I’m amazed that Mikki Moore’s skinny ass can actually throw elbows that hurt people. The worst injuries I have ever seen still belong to Willis McGahee in the fiesta bowl and the Broncos backup QB in that game against the Vikings when his pinkie was pointing sideways.

    Oh my god… I saw a picture of the Eduardo injury on youTube and that was enough. . . I don’t need to se that in motion picture… did this just happen to him in the last couple of days?? Arsenal will miss him… Ryan, is this career threatening or ending?

  • http://google.com davidR

    youtubed the eduardo thing.. probably the most gruesome injury ive seen:


  • anders

    the doctor were discussing if they needed to amputate his foot.. that’s damn seroius.. but he’s expected to recover…

  • http://kayceonline.com/blog/category/basketball-related/ Kevin

    still haven’t seen this play in action, now still don’t want to.

  • Lz – Cphfinest3

    For all your gore loving guys; Look up Henrik “Henke” Larsson (might be just one “s”) injury, a lot like Eduardo it’s just a lot further up the leg.. scary..

  • http://slamonline.com Pro

    Eduardo’s injury is career threatening right now, hopefully he’ll be back sometime next season. Its unlikely hes ever going to be the same again though.

  • Rob Paxon

    One of my favs, certainly wish him a speedy and full recovery.
