Tracy McGrady Sprains Ankle....A Very Common Basketball Issue
When it comes to basketball, the risk of spraining an ankle is constant. Quick breaks, starts, stops, pivots, and, of course, jumps. Whenever an ankle is sprained, there is always ligament damage. The time out of the game will depend on the extent of the damage. You'd expect that a sprain resulting from a jump would result in more damage from simply rolling the ankle. All we know is that McGrady's ankle was sprained in practice.
The Rockets announced that McGrady was a game-day decision to play tonight's game, which leads me to believe it's not so severe. Hopefully T-Mac will be back soon and stay healthy along with Yao and Artest to make this a great season.
