FOOT INJURY SHAKES UP NBA DRAFT

KANSAS STATE BASKETBALL STAR, JOEL EMBILD HAS SUFFERED A STRESS FRACTURE TO HIS FOOT.  HE WAS EXPECTED TO GO FIRST IN THE DRAFT AFTER BEING LABELLED THE TOP PICK.  THIS INJURY WILL SIDELINE HIM FOR 4 TO 6 MONTHS PUTTING HIM IN JEOPARDY FOR 1ST DRAFT PICK.

WHILE HE SHOULD RETURN TO FULL STRENGTH IT WILL MAKE ANY TEAM NERVOUS ABOUT SPENDING BIG DOLLARS FOR A RISKY INDIVIDUAL.  ANY TEAM WILL BE GAMBLING AS HE WILL WILL BE AN UNKNOWN IN REGARDS TO FUTURE INJURIES AND HE WILL COMMAND A LARGE INITIAL INVESTMENT.

REPETITIVE FORCES FROM JUMPING AND RUNNING ARE USUALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR STRESS FRACTURES AND ATHLETES HAVE TO BE CAREFUL TO LISTEN TO THEIR OWN BODIES AND SEEK PROFESSIONAL ATTENTION AT THE FIRST SIGN OF INJURY.  TRYING TO TRAIN THROUGH THEM IS USUALLY A BIG NO-NO.  THE PROBLEM WITH FOOT AND LOWER LIMB INJURIES IS THAT YOU HAVE TO WALK AND REST BECOMES A BIG FACTOR.
