Default Elton Brand cleared for no contact practice

Looks like Elton Brand is gonna try and comeback this season... if you were any nba player would you want to push up your comeback from a serious injury/play injured and risk your career (ie. dwade, arenas, brand, ford, etc.)?????

I really don't see a point in him trying to come back this season, it's not like the Clippers are gonna make a playoff push.

It gets very depressing for these outstanding players to just watch games in street clothes or not being able to enjoy the camaraderie of teammates.
I had injuries when I ran track in high school, and I did try to go back out there too soon.
Any of you ever had that happen while playing HS or college sports?

In HS I had a partial tear of a ligament in my left knee and as soon as I could jog/run again I went back and played full contact basketball to which I injured my knee time and time again. Eventually I gave up on rushing things and waited a full 6 months before I ever played again and I haven't had a problem since.

He's going to be a free agent this summer he has a lot of money on the line.

He has a chance to opt out. He is not a free agent yet.
