While I don't think it's a big deal, I don't see it as at all similar. From the perspective of players, the combine is there to improve your draft stock. If you're unable to go through the drills at a high level due to fatigue then there's no reason to expose yourself to the risk of hurting your stock.

Dev camp is completely different. Its purpose is for an organization to touch base with its young players and nudge their summer development along. If he isn't obligated to go then it's not a major issue, but considering the at least mildly sour relationship that seems to exist between Nino and the organization, it must be at least a little bit disconcerting.
