NBA Injury Watch: David West Eager to Help Indiana Beat Miami In Eastern Finals, Despite His Leg Injury
MOCNYC’s NBA Injury Watch, based on data from NBA.com, draws special attention to the injury of David West, who was out of practice before the Game 1 against Miami Heat.
As the NBA Conference finals are getting into full steam, NBA fans are placing themselves in front of the TV waiting for the remarkable show. However, Game 1 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals begins with concerns regarding Indiana Pacers forward David West. This Monday, West was limited in practice due to a strained right calf. Even though he is an optimist that the injury won’t cause any issues and he’ll be able to play on Wednesday, there is still a worry that he might need more rest.
“Since a calf strain like the one David has does not require surgery, he may be able to play, at least for a limited time,” says Dr. Armin Tehrany, assistant clinical professor of orthopedic surgery at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.
During practice on Monday, Pacers center Roy Hibbert hit his right thumb, and after the practice he had the thumb taped. But this small injury won’t affect his game at all during the match-up Wednesday night. For Indiana Pacers, these Conference Finals will be first since 2004, so the pressure to win is quite high. They face the Miami Heat, who beat them last year, so they don’t want to repeat the past.
“Roy Hibbert’s thumb does not sounds too bad. Taping should get him through the first game without difficulty,” Dr. Tehrany said.
