Can't find a source for this now so I may just be mis-remembering, but I was pretty sure it was a confirmed as shin splints. Depending on the severity that can take from a few weeks to 3-6 months to heal. Based on his workout video in Italy it looks like he's been doing a lot of bike/elliptical cardio which seems to jive with the shin splint diagnosis. If he tries to get up and run on the court too soon it could be a season long issue for him so I really hope he's taking the correct measures to heal and get better.There has been a lot of talk about Benjamin Bosmans-Verdonk's potential. I was just wondering if anyone knew if he is 100 per cent healthy yet. Has he been cleared for practice? Is the leg injury healed? Is he practicing with the rest of the team? Thanks in advance
As I was doing a search for answers to my questions so I wouldn't have to waste anyone's time here, in vain, I ran across this (the most recent article on his injury that I could find) which has probably already been cited here but I thought some remarks from the article were interesting:
"He spent the bulk of his last two weeks before the Italy trip working with strength and conditioning coach Adam Fletcher since he couldn’t practice. Still, Bosmans-Verdonk found some time to get on the floor.
“He’s a gym rat,” Underwood said. “He works on ball handling. He sits in a chair and shoots. He’s shooting between 500 and 1,000 free throws a day. He’s still finding a way to stay in the gym.”
And this was from a News Gazette article by Scott Richey:
