So it’s an elbow injury. He’s had x-rays, which were negative. He’s heading to DC to see a specialist.

Not that I'm in the know but as you probably know too, sometimes those things look worse than they turn out to be.    I'm hopin' that's the case.    The arm didn't look as dangling as some early reports suggested.

Hope this is a repeat of harper’s knee injury last year at worse when we all thought he tore his acl

Honestly I can’t tell. Was thinking of sending the video to my brother the doctor to see what he thinks. It looks horrific.

Well, what are you waiting for? Let's get dcdr to give us an informal opinion!

He is really bad about checking his phone so there’s a 50/50 chance he doesn’t reply till June.  Fingers crossed he is actually paying attention!

Service time remains frozen since he wasn't on 25 man roster.

My sports med doc friend says that if nothing is broken then he’s lucky, but that an MRI might show a coranoid process (ulna)fracture.
He doesn’t think it’s career threatening because it didn’t look like a complete dislocation. And sometimes these just sublux.
If there was a complete dislocation, you’d likely have seen a fractured radius on the x Ray. But obviously more tests are necessary.

This comes with caveat that this is all off of a twitter video and he’s half asleep because he’s in California and it’s 5 am.

Post reporting it's a hyperextension but it's still too swollen to know all the details. Re-evaluating next week. So that's...good news?

I'll give him a "y" for wearin' the Caps hat.    It's a probationary move.

From what I understand UCL tears aren’t common with this injury unless there is also a radial head break and a coronoid break. But it could happen I suppose and we won’t know go sure until it’s examined after swelling goes down.

He wore a Caps hat to his post game presser (last night and today).    I've awarded him an honorary "y" on a temporary basis in recognition of his "team" display.     When he goes back to the plain  :w:  hat, he'll be "Dave" again.

He's still "Dave", but he has not flim-flammed in the last few games. So far, so good.
