    Durant's ankle folds 90° and by the time it straightened out, Doc had this video uploaded. Incredible.I love this channel.

      The Lakers most likely know about the details of their players' injuries, they just decide to not share many details. For example LeBron's injured right foot tendon. There are over 100 of those in the human foot, saying he injured a tendon as the real diagnosis would be pretty unprofessional.

    Everytime I see an inversion ankle sprain, I get PTSD from my first severe sprain when I landed on the side of the defender's foot going up for a rebound. One of the most excruciating pains ever.

    I coach high school volleyball. I had one of my players roll his ankle today. It's interesting how almost everything you said in this video applied to my athlete. The trainer said it looks like an ATFL sprain. He doesn't have a history of sprains, and it was pretty painful (he couldn't walk on it) and swelled up pretty immediately.

      Reminds me of mine. I was able to play through it with little to no discomfort. I thought it was like every other rolled ankle. Then about 2 hours after the game I could barely walk. Told my parents I was fine. By the time my pride ran out, I couldn't walk at all. I had to be wheelchaired to the hospital.

    I had a similar thing happen to me about a decade ago when I decided to skip a couple of stairs and just step off the side and didn't notice the surface was loose. I ended up with a fracture on the top of my foot and I couldn't fit my foot into my shoe for awhile because my ankle was around twice its normal size. I think it was a month or so before it healed up fully but I also didn't do a ton of physical therapy or anything.

  • borRIING
    borRIING 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +11

    The doc is 100% on point here about wanting him to slip. I had injured my ankle like this with almost the same exact movement before. Let me say that the fact that KD generated enough force on his inverted ankle against the floor, and was able to push him up about a foot higher in the air worries me greatly.

    From my experience, inversion sprains are always the least severe. Always could walk those off while a high ankle sprain would ruin half a season

      It happens to me on occasion for no reason, but I never sprain it until last year when that happened on an overleveled driveway to the street and fell face first. It's nothing bad but a swollen lip and weakened front teeth. I was using a cane for mental support and found out the day after that I did something to my left ankle. Every time it happens, I'm always weary to walk after because it's a whole reaction to the foot going sideways on you. My left foot did go and turn to jelly, where I banged my knees on the gym court over 10 years ago, I think. Nothing bad as I still went to where it happened, and they healed almost a day after during the next day.

    Great video Doc! hey, have you seen Dennis Schröder ankle rolls, they are huge... but his ankle doesn't even swell. It seems this has happened before to him, he even stays in and finishes the games. I know is not an injury but I would love to know why this happens, his latests ankle roll was way more aggresive than KD roll.

    Hey Doc, how much are low top shoes responsible for all these lower body injuries to players? Back in like the 2000s and before most lower body injuries happened primarily to 7 footers and above or to guys who landed on someone's foot. Now it seems ankles are rolling or Achilles tesring way more frequently with the change to low tops and it seems like the injuries don't need any contact to happen. As a hooper myself I've noticed that high top Jordans and LeBrons have saved me from an injury like this especially when I was younger and always slashing to the rim. The shoe would basically catch my ankle and keep me upright.

  • Andrew
    Andrew 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

    Thanks doc! I am more curious how did this happen to KD in the first place. We don't look at our foot when we walk, run or jump but yet we don't turn our ankle 90 degree like KD did normally. 🤔

      I had the same injury as you in HS as well during a game and it swelled up like a grapefruit. It me me about a month, but it sounds like your sprain was worse than mine. It can be so tricky with sprained ankles and hammys...everyone is different in the way the respond to treatment.

    • Tony Davis
      Tony Davis 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

      @Thunder Chicken Mine swelled up like that as well. I actually still have a bump on the top of my foot from it, I had a really severe sprain. I definitely agree with you though, everyone is different and depends on how severe it was. Mine was probably healed in about a month as well but I couldn't fully run for closer to 2 months.

  • Sebastião
    Sebastião 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

    My impression of a lot of injuries of lower extremities is that the shoes play a more significant role than it is conveyed in the media. Does anybody agree? It looks to me that in KDs case, his shoe wasn’t aligning with the natural axis of his foot. Therefore he stepped on the soles edge and initiated the torque that led to the sprain.

    If you notice the ball guys were near his space while he was going for the dunk. Could Kevin had tried to avoid them subconsciously and that may have caused the injury by his body not having proper proprioception?

    This explanation is exactly why I'm wondering why everyone keeps saying that he slipped? His heel actually planted and then his ankle gave way, almost as if the muscles were too weak to keep it stable. There was actually no appearance of moisture or his heel sliding at any moment during the video.

    if you watch it in slow-motion you can actually see that he is already in an inversion position right before making ground contact; I would not call that slipping, and this should definitely be addressed in physiotherapy from a motor control perspective
    also interesting to keep in mind is the whole discussion around ankle taping and its usefulness, you could argue that ankle taping gives you a wrong sense of protection (in the end I would say it is more important how you move and land, rather than if you're taped or not)

  • Mr. E

    It didn't look like he slipped at all. His foot just started with an odd angle and never got flat and then turned over because he took a powerful unilateral leap that pushed his ankle all the way down

    I,for the life of me, can’t understand why everyone just quits when they twist or roll an ankle. It’s like they took an arrow to the knee and their leg is going to fall off.

    Small thing at 0:16, Durant already has played 3 games as a member of the Suns. This was not his debut night.

    I had the same injury on three different occasions playing basketball and was good each time in 2-3 weeks. KD will be ready for the playoffs.

    I've heard that swelling happens after sleep. Can you confirm this, doc?

    Player must pay attention to the angle of coming down to push off. The foot and calf angled as KD came down leading to the inverted heel strike had much to do with this sprain.

    As soon as I hear KD had his injury got in TH-cam sure enough Doc was already breaking down what had happened thinking this guy can see the future

    This type of ankle injury is what i always got if i got one. At least from how it looks. I fractured my ankle before but mostly would just get a sprain. Got some dumb ankles lmao

    Can this be a case of his shoes not being laced tight. I remember kd saying he likes his shoes being lose

    Can you make a video about Steven adams knee and how he got stem cell therapy? Wondering if it could help my chronic knee pain (I’m 19)

    Is there any concern due to this being uncontact injury?

    With how fast the Doc uploads videos, I wouldn't put it past him that he slipped the ball boy A Hundo to spill some water on the floor in the layup line

    I get the injury mechanics. But how about the glute activation here? Looks like he had no control on spiral chain from left side of his neck to right ribcage/core to left LE mainly imbalance in action from TA to PL to hamstring to glute to trunk?

    Grade 2 ankle sprain and Durant is likely out for the rest of the season. Phoenix has to look at next year, there's very little chance of Durant being a factor if he's back for the playoffs when he's had no time to learn to play with his new team.

    Interesting. I see a handful of comments on many Brooklyn Nets videos where they talk about his ankles. I guess I see why they were concerned now.

    really useful when a highly-supportive basketball shoe does something good instead of
    compounding injuries further along the leg like so many other instances.

      Jordan's are known for giving injuries. I wonder how KDs shoes were designed

    • pretzelhunt
      pretzelhunt 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

      @Sven Jorgensenn Oh, 👌 I see what you mean. Kevs [jordans?] look to be "low" or mid height at best, like walking shoes, and his feet are long as hell. I could see Jordans being hightop or more 'overbuilt' foams and, if not fairly loosened could relate to what I was talking about towards the end of my comment what with the injuring, and the shin-fracturing, and the knee-tweaking and the gla-HAY-vin !! squirming around on the floor in SO much agony... My ankle'll do the same with that relatively-uninjured rolling motion and maybe he removed some weight taking off, and knew in time before landing, but idk how he's not at least more injured than that..
