Injury Rumors

But with his health in question, the Puerto Rican national team may be forced to qualify for the Olympics without their unquestioned leader. With that said, Barea vows to return to his elite play next season, hoping to use this summer to recover from his minor aches and pains. “I’ve got to let the groin heal and just get some rest. I’ve got to get a small scope on my right knee, and then we’ll go from there,” Barea explained.
While there’s no return set in stone, Stevens sounded very encouraged that Crowder will be back in Boston’s lineup sooner rather than later. “There would be a good chance he’d be back along the trip, but I don’t know when,” said Stevens. “We’re not going to bring him back until he’s cleared to play by our trainers and doctors and he feels good about it. He’s itching to play and making good progress, and obviously he’s a big, important part of our team.”
