      @Dackery Mix of both some people have noted that his activity as a younger hoop couldve been excessive. (Working on concrete). Then bulls generally mishandling this but its nothing easy to deal with as a team, player etc...

      @Gamer D it’s no one’s fault. Injury is something you can’t predict. All nba players work hard and played ball a lot at a young age. Yet they don’t deal with this. This is just an injury. They happen, he’s just gonna have to work and go through therapy get his strength back and keep his diet right to strengthen his bones. That simple.

    This sucks to hear. I watched him during his time as a Pelican and while his play from day to day was inconsistent , the flashes were there. While I was bummed he was traded to the Bulls, I was happy to see him flourish there. Hope he can make a comeback and be able to contribute meaningfully to a winning team

    • LeBrian
      LeBrian 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +9

      He had flashes on the Lakers, almost there. He had flashes on the Pelicans, almost there. He had flashes on the bulls, almost there. Nah, hes an overhyped role player at best.

      @LeBrian thats fair, but he objectively looked really good in Chicago

    • Aidan Williams
      Aidan Williams 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +24

      @LeBrian he was going to be 1st team all defense with Chicago until his 1st season there got cut short to injury. 1st team All defense while running the offense as PG while Lavine and Derozan operated as the primary scorers. At age 24.

    • LeBrian
      LeBrian 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +4

      @Aidan Williams right, and he was going to be the 2nd coming of Jordan until he wasnt. Because he didnt. And he was going to be the first tri-professional athlete playing in the nba, nfl, and mlb, but actually didnt. Lets keep listing stuff he didnt accomplish and somehow attribute it to him anyway.

    • Aidan Williams
      Aidan Williams 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +18

      @LeBrian he was 100% guaranteed an all defensive first team spot if he just hit the minimum games requirement. You're literally hating on a player for developing bad knees due to working too hard on his game.

    Your channel is so informative and so spot on in almost every single situation. When you covered Damar Hamlin, you were the first to post a video and was very accurate as to what happened. Whoever has you for a doctor, they are very fortunate and should consider themselves lucky to have such a down to earth and well informed person such as yourself. If only you were in my area so I could be a patient as I have struggled with many surgeries in the last several years such as 3 Hip Replacements including 1 posterior, 2 lateral, a meniscus repair for a crescent tear, 2 double hernia surgeries with mesh replacement, an Achilles anchor due to a large bone spur that punctured it and had to be repaired as well. This was my last 6 years however the hip replacements all happened in 2016 in a 10 months span and the revision was due to a gap in the joint from the posterior in the ball part of the hip. My favorite channel as far as the medical channels I watch. I like to stay informed as best I can due to all my issues. Thanks so much for your content I learn so so much.

      @gullintanni I appreciate the well wishes I am 50 years old now, so age and a crazy lifestyle caught up to me.

Once again thanks for your kind words and take care of yourself it is important.

  • Mikhail Boldt

    Prayers up for the young man. IDC what you think of Him Lavar Melo Gelo this is a heartbreaking and profoundly sad story on every level. Lonzo worked his ENTIRE life for one singular purpose: to be a star basketball player. All that may be taken away in a flash not because of PEDs being a bust or criminality but because his own body simply failed him. Just as a human being that is such a tragic story. You work your ass off for so long only for it all to be stolen from you by your own body not holding up. If he is somehow able to play kudos otherwise I just want Lonzo to have a comfortable life where he’s not in pain. Throwing a ball into a hoop is great but in the end this is a person we’re talking about and life comes first.

    • AlexandreG
      AlexandreG 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +25

      Brother, it's a human. There's 8 billion of those in our planet. Calling it "profoundly sad story on every level" kinda just tells people youre a person who needs to go outside more. There's parents raising children for 25 years just for them to die on their arms that young. This is a guy(and also his father mostly) that worked all his life to become a guy with a 9-digit bank account, and now he will have to stay at home and chill or invest his money in other interesting businesses. So fucking sad really, not at all just you being out of touch!

      You’re entitled to that opinion but I personally disagree with you. There’s always going to be someone going through more pain or suffering than you, but that doesn’t invalidate your own experience. I don’t think it’s out of touch at all to feel bad for a man who can’t do what he loves anymore, even if he has already made millions of dollars. Money isn’t everything. Gatekeeping suffering is a very cold and heartless way to live life.

    Always been a fan of Lonzo. Anyone who knows basketball knowsd he had amazing court vision and high basketball IQ. The fact that he worked on his jumper and became an all around support player made his team dependant on him. He's a game changer type of player and if he can recover from this it'll be amazing for him. I support Lonzo all the way man.

    I am 32 years old. I had my first meniscus injury at 14, I’ve had 2 other meniscus surgeries on the same knee since then. I’ve played football in college and at a professional level. My knee has been through a lot lol. I was told early in my 20s by a doctor I would 100% need a knee replacement. I refuse to believe that is my only option and hopefully before it becomes necessary there can be better procedures in the near future to prevent this 🙏🏿

    Doc, you are the man. You give such a well-thought-out analysis of injuries athletes sustain and explain yourself, to us, in plain language. As for Alonzo appears he has a challenging road ahead. But, as a young professional athlete, maybe he can return to basketball and have a successful career - if not, and more important than basketball, he can have a pain-free life.

    Definitely understand how he's feeling with his knee.. I've had several knee surgeries over the years, all on my right knee, while I was in the Army: ACL Repair, meniscus repair, another surgery where they went in and cleaned up the damaged stuff inside, a microfracture surgery, and an osteochondral allograft where they put in cadaver cartilage.. I'd say the worst one was the microfracture surgery, it was pretty painful for a while.. Now several years later my knee is still messed up and they said I will need a knee replacement, but I'm too young (35) so the VA won't do the surgery.. Seems like once you have one knee surgery you have to keep going back for more.. I couldn't imagine trying to play any kind of sports with how bad my knee was after these surgeries.. Also, I have some crazy pictures of inside my knee where they drilled the holes for the microfracture surgery. I wish I could share the pictures here. If you ever want to use the pictures of my knee to show and explain the microfracture surgery I could send them to you

  • Jordan Strait
    Jordan Strait 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +23

    Such an unbelievable defender and his willingness to completely change his shot was great to watch. One of my favorite players to root for as my casual friends knocked him for his pops antics. I hope he comes back sturdy, he's still young

    • Nizzle Mania
      Nizzle Mania 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      I saw the same thing in him when he first got to the league. His willingness to rebound and play defense is when I realized he was legit. I don’t judge pros or entertainers on what we see on tv. I watch basketball for the art of the sport not to judge the player personally. I admire his dad really. A good father who kept his family safe and got his kids to the top. Hats off to you for being on the same wavelength.

    • Jordan Strait
      Jordan Strait 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

      @Nizzle Mania *firm handshakes* it's so underappreciated what his dad did for their hype and even more underappreciated how great LaMelo and Lonzo have been while healthy

    I had an OCA of the right talus in the ankle. Ankle pain due to the OCA was basically eliminated. The remaining discomfort was due to soreness of some of the connectivity tissue that was injured in the past. Lonzo is certainly young enough where the allograft should "take" and not be absorbed by the body which is more likely to happen in patients older than 45 years. I hope to see Lonzo back on the court in 12-18 months.

  • Agent 71
    Agent 71 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +6

    I have a ton of respect for Lonzo. He came into the league with a ton of pressure to save a struggling franchise with insane fans (i'm a fan, so I know), people made fun of his jumpshot, his dad was all over TV being a HUGE distraction, had to deal with the jokes about his brother in China, and his mom had a health scare.
    There's a lot of talk about how young guys in the league are immature (cough JA cough)... well here you have Lonzo, a guy that kept his cool, stayed focused, and worked on his game. The way he carried himself through all of that is something we should all be proud of. It sucks that he might have a short career because of this because he worked himself into becoming one of the better 2-way players in the league.

    I admire doctors and respect their work, being a doctor something I could never do and it’s very impressive that you have become one and also create content. I also enjoy your videos a lot and I’m subscribed. This explanation makes sense BUT the issue with lonzo is that nobody knows what’s wrong with him and that’s why he hasn’t been cured and had so many surgeries so I don’t know if this is actually what’s wrong with him

  • devildogwhisper
    devildogwhisper 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +4

    I think you meant Jordan Adams. I remember the Grizz were high on him, but he didn't seem to rise to those expectations. I guess that must've been why. It makes a lot more sense, since he wasn't exactly known to be a super-athletic leaper or speedster, that he just couldn't recover from injury instead of just being a bust. Sometimes it really only takes a fraction of lost mobility to derail a professional athlete's career.

  • Aaron

    I think it's safe to say that if it takes him a year to recover & at least a year to get back to playing at a starter level, his career is probably over. Stinks as a Bulls fan but I'm just glad he's going to be able to play with his kids and function like normal

    I was an All American track and field athlete that had the oats procedure done.

    I pray Lonzo's fate is much better 🙏

      @Brian Sutterer MD Thank you so much man! Lonzo and Brandon Roy are two of my favorite players, and it sucks how similar their knees are seemingly turning out. I thought Brandon had an interesting injury and surgery rapsheet but here comes lonzo! I like what you said about saying "playing basketball would be a bonus" as long as he's pain free that a win in my eyes. Even if he has to prematurely retire. But at age 25, I say it could be possible he's back to atleast a playing level by maybe 27. No need to rush into it as he's very young. The video you made on Brandon a few years ago was actually the first I ever saw from you. Keep killing it, 700k is right around the corner!!

    This is super similar to what I had done to my ankle, had a broken talus with dead cartilage (talar dome osteochondral lesion). They screwed the bone back and micro fractures to the bone, and first surgery didn’t heal properly, but short term was great, second surgery was the same thing, just didn’t heal right. Now a few years later I have signs of arthritis, and I might have to get a bone graft. This video was great to watch cause I can really relate to this

    Wish him the best. With him the Bulls were easily a play off team. Was back and forth with the nets and 1 and 2 spot. Without him, they are play in at best. I was hoping to see Lonzo transform the Bulls and bring something exciting to watch, watch he did. Lakers he was getting introduced. Pelicans, he was getting comfortable. Bulls, he found his tune and was flourishing. I'm hoping to see a healthy recovery, but to be realistic, he probably won't be back playing 100% and starting if this has been dragging on for this far.

Didn’t want to take medication for the rest of my life. So I changed my diet, stretched daily. The pain comes and goes now, it’s bearable! Good to know there is cartilage transplant. Definitely will look into it! Hope Zo can make a healthy recovery 🙏🏼🙌🏼💪🏼💪🏼

I had my procedures wen I was 22 and my surgeon said life will be normal but I can’t play real competitive ball anymore (and at the time I was only d3) so I can only imagine wat there telling him bout coming back on nba level 🥲💔 this sucks not to mention Lonzo is one of my fav players. Prayers for zo 💯💯

  • 2-Way Scoring Machine
    2-Way Scoring Machine 6 วันที่ผ่านมา

    I’m a former 6’9 athlete. I’m having this surgery in 3 days: allograft/cartilage transplant surgery. The doctors said I could return to ball, but honestly, what causes this is a lack of blood flow in the knee. No blood flow in the knee is equivalent to a plant not being watered, and playing ball would just put so much wear and tear on the knee. So that’s what happened to my knee, causing me to get my second surgery. I could return to playing ball, but they have to find a way to get blood flowing in my knee, probably so it won’t happen again for the third time. So I don't know if Lonzo Ball is having the same surgery as me, but there's still hope for him.

    It's the constant taking of time off that people don't realize takes a bigger toll on an athlete. Not only do they need to rehab the knee or particular injury, they are losing months of cardio, months of certain workouts that are hindered by their particular injury. So trying to come back is always harder than staying back will be.

    I hope Mr. Ball does well with this surgery.
    I had microfracture surgery on my right knee 34 years ago. I bashed it during the early days of mtn biking and I was only okay with the results. I had a weak spot and the pedal stroke was definitely affected. I also had to stop trail running for good, which was a big bummer. It swells internally once in a while and aches like hell for a few days. I can't let my leg get out of shape because it tracks wrong and aches. I lost a lot of power and speed on that operating table, and it's difficult to explain the psychological adaptation because at times all you want to do is quit and grab a handful of painkillers. I certainly have had to mentally push my way through a lot of that.
    Didn't stop me though. I am up over 200,000 miles since the surgery, with about a fourth of that gnarly mountain biking. (I also led two Divide expeditions) The activity didn't stop, it just changed form. I could train 24/7 and the limitation would still be there from a competitive standpoint. I sure would have liked to try a more modern approach to this surgery, but I consider myself fortunate to have lived in a time when these things are possible.

      Simply because game has changed to be way more fast paced. Also they train more. And without steroids it's not possible to play every 2 days professional game and then train in days in between. Used to be possible in 90s and 80s when game was slower

    I've had an austiochondral allograft procedure done for a "pothole" in my tibial plateau 2 years ago when I was 27. Rehabbed and got back into running only to then suffer a delamination of cartilage in my femoral plateau this time.. 30 years old and I can't run yet. Been real tough on me, especially as an active athlete, and I've been going back and forth on whether I should get one of these procedures done.. or if this is just how my life is now living with early onset osteoarthritis :/ :( would appreciate perspectives

    It's the NBA. He's done and if he comes back he'll play another 250 games max but probably not half that. He'll probably be able to walk normal or even play pickup three on three but the knee tolerating NBA stress for an extended time is a longshot.

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help me can understand this injury as I’m going through something similar, although not quite as severe as Lonzo.
    I have a 7mm chondral tear in my left knee. I’m also very tall like Lonzo (6’6) and (was) very active. I lifted weights 4-5 times per week, walked a lot etc.
    My injury was largely due to overuse but I believe there was a straw that broke the camels back when I hit my knee off the ground a bit too hard, which initiated the pain/swelling/mobility issues.
    I’ve since gone to the orthopedic doc, got MRI, and did 4 weeks of PT. The PT didn’t help much, and the doctor basically recommended gel shots for the missing cartilage. I’ve rested as much as I could and iced for several months. No real improvements.
    Is a 7mm chondral tear bad? Are my only options injections or surgery? Please help. Thank you very much.

    I had an extensive OCA (aka mosaicplasty) in 2003 at age 28. I was a 2 sport athlete (swimming and soccer) at large D1 school. Surgeon thought I'd get 10 years, maybe 15 years before I'd need additional surgery. I did run (15-20 miles per week) and cycle (100-200 miles per week) regularly after the procedure. It's 20 years later, I don't exercise like I used to, but still highly functioning knee. Biggest issue was dealing with scar tissue and extension issues. Hope to see Lonzo back in action, but it might be 2 years before he feels normal.

I've had an MRI since and been told I'm riddled with fast developing arthritis even though it's a new injury. Is there anything I can do to help myself and how unlikely am I to be able to lift weights again? Will it affect day to day living moving forward? I'm still in considerable pain now.
