(Two posts in a day? I know.)
Hakeem Nicks, a fellow Tarheel, is out of the game for “3 weeks” due to compartment syndrome. Press Release. The onset of his CS is different, sounding more like acute CS than chronic. Still, he’ll have to recover from the same surgery. 3 weeks sounds laughable to me, but I also don’t take huge hits professionally. I hope they give him the time to recover adequately. He’s too good of an athlete to rush back for the sake of the playoffs.
