What was originally reported as a sprained thumb is now a season-ending injury. From the Tribune,
A magnetic resonance imaging exam taken Tuesday night at Staples Center produced negative X-rays. The Jazz said that Fesenko had a sprained right thumb, and he did not play against the Los Angeles Lakers. Another medical test occurred Wednesday in Salt Lake City, though, confirming Fesenko's fracture. The 7-foot-1, 280-pound Fesenko is expected to miss the remainder of the season as a result of the injury.
That's too bad for Fess. I'm not sure what the recovery time will be and how many weeks he would have missed had this occurred earlier in the season. It could be the standard 6-8 weeks.
This also could be the end of Fesenko's career as a Jazz man. There's a longer post involved if that's the case.
Here's to a speedy recovery for Fess and a hope that he can get his basketball career back on track.
