It appears to my untrained eye that due to last years compressed schedule of games with little time for rest we are seeing a larger than normal amount of stress induced injuries, stress fractures and plantar faciatis and these injuries are occurring to the stars - the ones who play the most minutes. Kobe, Pau, Howard, Nash, Rose, Stoudimire, etc have all gone down and that list isn't nearly inclusive. Who you are not seeing on the list is the Spurs players who Pop forces to rest....... As usual Pop and PATFO seem to be ahead of the learning curve. GO POP!!!
