Kind of sounds like you want him to stick around for this rebuild. Is that fair to say? Rafael Stone: I think with all the guys that we ended the year with, we like them as people, we like them as players. It was a uniquely challenging year, and we rotated through just a million players. We just took what felt like injury after injury after injury. We had a really tough year, but we didn’t end the year with a group that we didn’t like; we like the players on our roster. Practically speaking, NBA teams turn over — you’re not going to bring back the exact same team that you had the year before, whether because you’re adding people through the draft or free agency or whatever. And so that applies to every team, not just ours. But what we really like is our guys, and we’re certainly not trying to not have any of them back. All of them contribute in positive ways, both on and off the court. And so, if they’re not going to be around, we need to bring in somebody who is impressive and is positive.

For something like a partial ACL tear, diagnosing that was important. What are the differences between knee sprains that affect the ACL ligament? DR. NGUYEN: So the grading scale is more of a guideline. Grade ones and grade threes are relatively straightforward in terms of treatment. The grade ones, usually non-operative, the grade threes are typically operative for elite athletes. Basketball players and soccer players, football players, are required to do a lot of cutting and pivoting.
