"The Argentine national team Doctor Diego Grippo said on a press conference today that the results of Manu’s MRI were good and they signaled a way for them to work going forward, but were not conclusive.
He seemed optimistic and said he doesn’t expect further testing to take place. He believes Manu can play and, obviously, Manu wants to play.
But Grippo said the results are now going to San Antonio for the team doctors to take a look. And it’s now on the Spurs’ hands whether Manu plays or not.”
“I tore my rotator cuff and it tore apparently right off the bone.”
“It was a thing that had been bothering me for quite some time and then it came back at the beginning of the season. And didn’t know what it was. Didn’t know how bad it was and just tried to play through it.”
“I didn’t really realize until after the season when I had an MRI that this was pretty serious and now I’m looking at six to seven months out.”
