Road to Recovery

Enter the Road of Rehabilitation: How do the Game’s Best Return Stronger

When NBA players go down due to injury and are ruled out of action for one month, two months, or even a year, they are very quickly forgotten about.

They disappear from our minds as they disappear from out television screens. They are going under the knife and will remain on the couch until they are healthy enough to return. We disregard what the rehabilitation process is like – the countless hours of work that these extraordinary athletes put into return to the floor better, faster, and stronger.

And of course most importantly – sooner.

Here is a look of how difficult the road to recovery truly is.

Gordon Hayward – Boston Celtics

Being ruled out for the season with a torn achilles tendon, no one said rehabilitation was going to be easy, but ‘Boogie’ is putting in the hours to get back to the court for the start of next season.

Jeremy Lin – Brooklyn Nets

Despite a season ending knee injury, Jeremy Lin is back in the gym working his way back to full strength. Expect a better and stronger Lin in the 2018-19 season!
