Tim Thomas Hurt His Knee

The Mavs still don’t know just how severe the knee injury is: “The Mavericks also learned that forward Tim Thomas suffered a knee injury of undetermined severity during a pickup game on the East Coast. Apparently, the injury is at least a sprain, but could include some cartilage damage. A sprain would mean the 6-10 forward probably would be able to participate in at least part of training camp, which starts Sept. 28, if not all of it. Cartilage damage would require perhaps four to eight weeks of recovery time. The Mavericks hope to know more when their doctors examine Thomas.”

    I’m surprised he was playing ball during the summer, he rarely tries during the season.

    The effect on his game will be barely noticeable as IT has already suffered a career-threatening injury!

    he was actually playing hard enough to get hurt?.. or was he really just shooting around with Nike sandals and socks..
