If doctors told me that his diabetes will not hinder him on the court or in practice in any way, then I would disregard that potential problem. I would have to rely on what doctors told me. I'm sure it's the same with every other GM at the top of the draft.
That answers both questions. If a doctor believed his diabetes would become a problem, of course it will affect his draft positioning. If not, then it doesn't. And I would listen to the advice of my medical staff and the doctors that examines him.
