That is why they said there was no broken bone, but a later X-ray revealed a small fracture. Since Zucc is only wearing a brace he's probably only sustained a stable fracture, which is a clean tear in the bone, no shattering. Ie. a simple fracture.
Personally I think that Zucc playing anywhere before mid March is unrealistic. Optimistic at best.
I wouldnt worry about his contract though, he's shown enough to warrant a extension, a couple weeks off wont change any of that
I just hate when people do this. You have no idea the extent of his injury and are speculating that he won't be available until Mid-March. Let's wait and see.
