Of course it was a risk, he's a physically underdeveloped player who had a bum shoulder for over a year. How could they not see that as a problem? Development of your future #1 center is more important than some potential flukey playoff run. This team is set up for the future and guys like RNH are big keys to that so this thing should have been take care of early on so that he could have a full offseason of upper body training and be ready for the '13-'14 season to be able to handle more responsbility. Now he will have to focus on rehab moreso than developing that upper body.
Did they actually think that he would succeed this season against tougher matchups with a bum shoulder?
Yes development of him is important, which is why you don't needlessly kill an entire season for him. Nuge playing in games is more important for him, and the rest of the team, than is improving his bench press in the offseason.
