With Caron Butler needing to leave Friday night’s game after an injury, Brendan Haywood told The Washington Post: “I hope he bounces back and is back quickly. Sometimes it’s frustrating, feels like we’re cursed.”
But are the Wizards cursed or do they have a sub-par medical/training staff? There seems to be very little attention paid to that kind of issue. But the conventional wisdom is that the Phoenix trainers are unusually good, so doesn’t it make sense that some would be unusually bad. Wizards players not only get hurt a lot (which happens to everyone) but seem to take a very long time to recover.
