A veteran NYPD detective was fired Wednesday, about a month after authorities said he accidentally shot his partner in the wrist.
Recovery time is projected at six months. Teixeira said he’d likely have the surgery next week.
Brian Cashman says surgery remains an option for Mark Teixeira after a cortisone shot didn’t do much to help his aching right wrist.
“That’s a good thing,” Joe Girardi said before the team’s 6-5 win over the Los Angeles Angels. “If he was to re-tear it, that would probably be it for the season.”
The media references to Teixeira’s injury noted the involved area to be his wrist -– a joint, while also pointing to a diagnosis of strain. This doesn’t totally compute.
Nets guard Deron Williams underwent successful wrist surgery today in New York. Williams’ wrist will be encased in a soft splint for two weeks, after which time he will begin rehabilitation.
