As I wrote yesterday, around 10% ends up with a shoulder with less function(if it's the kind of injury and surgery I'm guessing it is) albeit the end result is way better for people under 30 and likely for a young athlete the odds are as good as they can be. But still there's a chance he might end up with a shoulder that's worse than before. For a kid starting out his pro career that's a scary scenario and ofcourse he's going to try and push it as far as possible.
This. 10 pages full of "experts" on the internet with medical degrees. Good post. Surgury for Nuge at this time makes perfect sense, it is clear that he was ok with it and that the medical staff did their jobs. If this was something from the first game of the year on an 82 game schedule and he just decided now, thus putting his spring camp in jeopardy it might be different but this injury has bothered him since JUNIOR.
