Metta World Peace sustained a dislocated middle finger on his right hand. Played through it tonight, might need splint for a few games.

I thought he injured his hand, I saw him grimacing and holding his hand after a play. Hopefully it doesn't affect his shooting too much, he was having a great preseason.

Damn Rock you're quick :man10:
I read the tweet, went to LD and you'd already created the thread lol

On a serious note, though I don't like this one bit, I'm not worried about it.. MWP is tough as nails, and he's been working too hard to let anything get in his way, especially a little finger injury. He'll be in the gym shooting asap and he'll make the necessary adjustments.

Quick injury update: @Metta World Peace dislocated the middle finger on his shooting hand; he popped it back in himself & is OK.

World Peace said he's fine, isn't worried about it. That stings bad when you put the dislocated finger back in, but it subsides.

Yeah he must have done it himself, because he continued playing through it. All for a preseason game. :jam2:

Not too worried about that. He'll be fine, especially if he was able to just pop it back in himself.

I think Kobe's dislocated and broken every single finger on each of his hands. MWP is one tough son of a...he'll be fine. Just as it's just a little injury like this and not like that one he had to deal with to start last season, he'll be fine.

Yet another reason to have kept CDR around: Wing player injuries.
