Whats the longest you've been layed up for?
 
Think I tore my pec muscle benching yesterday so I'll probably be down all summer. Things have been going pretty well for me on the court but now that I'll be down for a while I worry that I'll be starting all over again

One time I dislocated my left thumb...every time it was barely healthy enough to play, I would somehow reinjure it.

I had the most tender and sensitive thumb for like 6 months. It sucked, but I dealt with it because I wanted to ball so much. It's not my most serious injury or anything.

Maybe three months? I ruptured a tendon in my hand while playing back in 2007ish and the subsequent surgery kept me out for a while.

More recently, I took around eight weeks off back toward the beginning of winter after I developed tendinitis in my elbow at the same time I apparently pulled an adductor muscle near my groin (unless it was a sports hernia instead or something). Both of those happened at nearly the same time so with summer ball coming to a close, I decided to step back for a few. Bad Choice. I think I'm still paying for that now.

Still don't know how long I'm out but I'm worried about losing what I've gained over the last few years

Yeah, that's always the worst part. Will you be able to run at all? That'd at least help cushion the blow a little.

Like a year due to chronic knee tendinitis... That was after like a year of playing with it only being able to play like 75%. After a year I just gave in and accepted it.

We have a pretty good eliptical that I can use. I was starting to do some HIIT with basketball specific exercise that seemed to be working pretty well. I just wonder how long it will take to get my shot and handle back to where they were after missing a while

6 weeks when I ****ed up my ankle, and that was torture to me.

Once I made a lay up at the buzzer from almost a 3 point line.

i fractured my leg. and i played on it next week because i thought it was just a sprain, of course i was hopping around on 1 leg. i was young and stupid, i eventually went to the hospital 2-3 weeks later. this totally f'ed up my summer about 9-10 years back. of course fractures heal quick and on their own, so i was playing about 3 months later.

Bummer. I just sprained my ankle as well. It became very swollen but it seems to be improving rapidly day by day. Could you walk on yours after the first day?

Out 1.5 years with plantar faciattis. That's what happens when you ball on concrete 4 days a week running 15 miles a week for 4 years straight. Sucked but damn it was a hell of a 4 year run.
