Nate Robinson played 44 games last season with the Denver Nuggets. A healthy return to form from Nate Robinson is essential in helping ease the load on Ty Lawson. The load I speak of is carrying the Denver Nuggets back to the playoffs. The Denver Nuggets website posted an article today (June 19th) giving us an update on Nate Robinson’s health.
Robinson said Thursday that his rehab program is “right on schedule” and he is hoping to be ready by the start of the 2014-15 season. He tore the ACL in his left knee on Jan. 29 and had surgery two days later.
Robinson, who averaged 10.4 points and 2.5 assists in 44 games with Denver, is one of three Nuggets recovering from ACL surgery. Danilo Gallinari and J.J. Hickson also are in the midst of rehabilitation programs overseen by strength and conditioning coach Steve Hess and athletic trainer Dan Shimensky.
“We’re all pushing each other,” Robinson said. “I’m trying to catch up with Gallo; J.J. is trying to catch up with me.
Great to hear the man behind the book Heart Over Height, is attacking rehab as viciously as he attacks the rim.
The Denver Nuggets article also brings up Danilo Gallinari and J.J. Hickson. As an avid fantasy basketball player, I always go to Rotoworld for injury updates.
Danilo Gallinari (knee) says that his knee rehab is going well, and that he hopes he will be ready by the start of training camp.“I think training camp is realistic,” Danilo said. Jun 9 – 7:01 PM
