Eggers: Blazers F Gerald Wallace Discusses Injured Finger

54
Kerry Eggers of the Portland Tribune has a piece on the inconsistency and home/road splits of Portland Trail Blazers forward Gerald Wallace, which includes some detailed quotes about the status of the strained ligaments in his injured right middle finger. ----------------------------- "I’m afraid of hitting it on the rim," Wallace says. "The most tender part is on the inside. I have to mentally prepare myself to receive the ball. Anything that’s going to hurt it, I try not to do it." Doctors have told him the only way to fully heal the finger is to be idle for several weeks. "I have to play," he says, "but it’s going to continue to get banged. When I’m off the court, I wear a hard cast on it to keep it straight so the ligaments can heal without bending. It’s feeling better. As long as the swelling is going down and the pain can become more bearable, it’ll be all right. But it’ll still be sore until the summer." ----------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
