Marc Stein has story running on the front page of ESPN's NBA site about Monta's injury. For the full article check out the link below.
The most damning bit of gossip that Stein offers us is this:
Two experts in sports medicine consulted by ESPN.com, granted anonymity because they aren't privy to the specifics of Ellis' condition, said that a torn deltoid ligament is rarely seen in basketball. The deltoid ligament, the sources explained, is on the medial (big toe) side of the ankle while the structures typically involved in a high ankle sprain are on the opposite (lateral) side of the ankle. Involvement of the deltoid suggests a more serious rotational injury than those commonly associated with the NBA, the sources said."
Stein has has this tidbit of new information:
Multiple league sources have told ESPN.com that Ellis had several cuts and abrasions on his leg -- atypical of an injury sustained on a basketball court -- in addition to the high ankle sprain and torn deltoid ligament he suffered on Aug. 21.
This is similar to what the Contra Costa Times reported early last week when they rumored that Ellis was hurt in motorcycle incident. The Warriors still maintain they are not investigating Monta's incident. The question is: should the Warriors look into this more?
