More From Iverson, Grizzlies on the Injury

From the Memphis Commercial Appeal, we have a few more tidbits on this injury and its implications:

“It’s just basketball,” coach Lionel Hollins said. “Got to play with who is there. Can’t worry about who is not.”

Asked how he could help the team from the bench, Iverson said: “Just keep talking to them and helping them. One thing about these young guys that’s so different from a lot of the young guys I’ve been around in my career is they accept criticism. They accept it, and that’s important. … These young guys obviously respect me and what I’ve been through and what I’ve accomplished in my career, so it makes it that much easier to talk to them and help them.”

“The most frustrating part about the injury is that I’m mobile,” he said. “I can do things. I can jog and I can move around, but from what I’m hearing, that’s the catch to the whole thing: You think you feel well, then once you take off, take that initial burst, that’s when it hits you.”
