A pick-up game of basketball this past weekend left Rory Mcllroy on crutches with a lateral ankle sprain. He’s officially out of next week’s British Open, but I think there’s an excellent chance he’ll compete in next month’s Bridgestone Invitational.

Wrist fractures vs. wrist sprains: Knowing the difference could save your career

The Miami Marlins will be without Giancarlo Stanton, the team's undisputed best player, for the next four to six weeks as he recovers from a hamate bone fracture in his left hand.

It’s tough to keep up with all the young stars in baseball, but one in particular quickly rising to the top is Miami Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton. Unfortunately, he broke his hamat bone in his wrist over the weekend and will be out for 4 to 6 weeks. It’s a fairly common injury, even for high-school and college athletes. It’s caused by repeated pressure or rubbing from a bat, club or racket. The good news is the recovery time is short and shouldn’t have long-term affects on a player’s career.

The Q was rockin’ and all abuzz last night as the Cavs pulled out another win, pushing them to a 2 to 1 Finals lead.
What a ride! It’s unbelievable. I’d really love to just talk basketball, but unfortunately, Cavs injuries continue.

As an avid Cleveland sports fan, I’m proud to call our Cavs Eastern Conference champs. Go Cavs!

It was great to see Kyrie Irving back on the court last night after struggling with a knee injury. After a trip down to Florida to see internationally revered Dr. James Andrews, he got a new treatment plan that included the second “r” in rest and rehab. It’s really encouraging for Cavs fans as we advance to the finals.

The NBA play-offs are like a battle of attrition. It’s almost like watching the NFL. Teams plagued by injuries are falling off one by one. Kyrie Irving is struggling with a mid-foot sprain, while LeBron is battling an ankle sprain. Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls is combatting knee issues and now just in the last game, we saw him holding his arm like he had a stinger or burner.

My recently released book, “Cleveland’s Bitter Pill: A diagnosis of injured title dreams and die-hard fans,” chronicles what I like to call a fraternity of misery. In our city’s quest for a championship, typically it’s been injury, illness and even death that have come between us and that fiercely coveted title. The book recounts 45 cases from the 1920s through the 2000s where our hopes have been derailed.
