Sore “ankle” puts Tyson Chandler in medical walking boot

ESPN.com (h/t Joey):

New Orleans Hornets center Tyson Chandler is expected to sit out another one to two weeks while his sore left ankle heals. Team officials said Friday that Chandler had been fitted with a medical walking boot, which he is expected to wear anywhere from seven to 14 days. Chandler already has missed four straight games since his left ankle, which kept him out for about a month earlier this season, began to bother him again.

I know, I know. Forget about Tyson Chandler. Let’s move on. I want to as well. But when you see news like this, it’s hard not to notice. I really wish the best to Tyson, but deep down (waaaaay deep down, in the really dark place) the more I see of these types of stories, the better I feel.
