On Coming Back Too Soon From Injuries....

I won't dive into the beehive like C. L Brown did... I won't question the rigor of the conditioning program or "too much practice."

But I will point out that I personally feel Pitino and his staff push players to get on the court as soon as possible-- and I'll go so far as to say, perhaps sooner than they should after injury.

Jared Swopshire resisted this "encouragement" strongly. He may yet get re-injured, but not yet.

We've now seen both Blackshear and Buckles come back not near 100%--and get re-injured.

I hear directly from Siva after the DePaul game that he had STILL been wearing a brace and that the ankle was not 100% yet. Are we surprised he can't jet past players or execute those spin moves off that pivot foot?

I hear Coach saying he is disappointed and "surprised" that SVT and Kuric were not ready to go last game against Marquette. If you saw the injuries to teammates mounting up, wouldn't you be reluctant to push it too?

Forget too much practice or too tough conditioning ...how about the simple question: Are players being pushed to play too soon after injuries?
