Huh...? The L for "ligament" is right there in MCL...
Yeah I poorly worded that. I'm not a doctor. But I think you know what I meant.An MCL sprain is ligament damage. It's just not a complete tear.
This will likely mean the rest of the season. People play on these in football. It was said that Brady suffered a MCL sprain during the year, but for a basketball player it is a whole different story.
Safest route for him is to let it fully heal (a few months) and hit the camps in the early summer.
It really sucks because I loved watching Jalen play. It was a pleasure to watch him driving to the hoop and his creative shots. It's just a pleasure watching the kid.
I meant did he just like stretch the ligament (a sprain, I think) or tear it (much more serious).
To me, MCL sprain indicates something not as serious, rather than a complete tear. When you hear of an athlete spraining their MCL, that indicates they either stretched the ligament, or tore it just slightly enough so it's not serious. If they tore it, they call it a torn or ruptured MCL. No?
