I don't see any advantage to this? He would have two months of games left to play if he comes back immediately after the all-star break. He needs to be on the court developing and improving.
If it’s a chronic injury, like plantar fasciitis, coming back doesn’t make any sense at all. Because he could play through that today. He’ll just come back n sit when it flares up a week or so later. It’s mental. The only thing to fix it is rest n better shoes, which would be sad n funny because he has a contract with Puma, who should be designing custom shoes for him.
