Default Dalembert's injury

Quote:
The idea was for the 76ers to spend five days practicing together in preparation for Wednesday's season opener.

Samuel Dalembert getting out on the floor and working with Elton Brand would be especially important because Dalembert missed the last week, including three preseason games, with a sprained right knee.

But Dalembert didn't practice Friday because of the knee and said he might be able to take part in some drills today, though it's unlikely he would scrimmage or be involved in contact.

And then Thaddeus Young, who is expected to start at small forward, suffered a mid-back strain while going up for a layup during a two-on-two drill. Young went to team chiropractor Neil Liebman for treatment in the afternoon; he is listed as day-to-day.

Dalembert appears to be more of a concern at this point. He said the quad strain that lingered for months at the start of the 2005-06 season has him being cautious this time.


Dalembert hurt the quad on the first day of training camp at Duke that year, then aggravated it in the preseason and ended up missing the first 13 regular-season games.

“I'm just making a smart decision,” Dalembert said. “The organization and I are on the same page.”

Should there be a concern about this lingering injury with Dalembert as the season begins?

Dalembert participated in a full practice saturday, looked, fine, said he felt fine, coach said his conditioning was still good. The flu was keeping him out too.

Young didn't practice as a pre-cautionary. He'll be ready for the season opener.

Young, who had been penciled in as the 76ers' starting small forward, said afterward that "there are no doubts about Wednesday," which is the opening night of the regular season.

Center Samuel Dalembert practiced yesterday and Saturday after resting his sore knees for several days. He reported "feeling much better" yesterday after experiencing some post-practice stiffness Saturday.
Forward Thaddeus Young was ready to resume practicing today after suffering a midback strain during Friday's session. He spent 2 days taking treatment from team chiropractor Neil Liebman, and said, "He was able to work his magic on me."
