You are TOTALLY misinterpreting what the guy is saying - his head is not in the game was a poor choice of words, meaning - at the same time he's playing, the pain from his ankle remains distracting. But only to a degree, but obviously it's keeping him from playing to his full potential. I'd rather he stayed off skates, but if he plays, he's still not that bad as long as he compensates for his 'lack of maneuverability'.
