This is not a new course of care for the oft-injured star, who evidently underwent three cortisone injections and PRP treatment for bilateral ankle issues last season as well.

Sims: Breaking Down Kobe Bryant’s Knee Injury

When Kobe Bryant returned to the court on December 8 following months of rehab on the repaired left Achilles he’d torn in April, he did so confidently – at least in words. In actions, not so much.

Sims: Breaking Down Antonio Cromartie’s Reported Injury

Sims: A Look At Matt Harvey’s Arizona Fall League Paradox

Sims: Sanchez Opting For Chance-It-And-See Approach With Shoulder

If Matt Harvey was an everyday guy pitching in a Central Park league and he opted to try conservative management after partially tearing his ulnar collateral ligament, we wouldn’t give it a second thought. But he’s not.

Sims: Don’t Expect Giants RB Andre Brown To Be Back Anytime Soon

Andre Brown, the Giants’ backup running back, was quoted as saying that because the leg fracture he sustained in Thursday night’s exhibition game is so small, he expects to be back on the field in two weeks. Don’t count on it.
