T-Mac Is Confused, Might Shut it Down for the Season

Yesterday, Tracy McGrady underwent an MRI on his gimpy knee for the umpteenth time this season. The good news, I guess, is that the status of his knee remains unchanged. That is to say, it’s still a mess – as we’ve all clearly seen.

According to T-Mac, however, he’s receiving conflicting reports from the doctors, and will make a decision on what to do with himself and the knee following the All-Star break.

From Click2Houston:

“It just regressed,” a sullen McGrady said. “Since I had the surgery, the same injury is there.”

The injury could end McGrady’s season, although he says he will exhaust all options, and microfracture knee surgery is a last resort. Making matters murky, however, are conflicting opinions from doctors.

“I’ve been getting some good news, and I’m getting bad news,” McGrady said. “I’m confused…It’s not fair to the guys (for me) to rest, come back, and then 5-6 games I’m feeling the same, no. I have to, for myself, for this team, fix the problem so I don’t have it no more.”

I’m not a betting man, but if I had to guess, my gut tells me we won’t be seeing too much of Tracy in the second half of the season. Shocking, I know.
