Waiting for Curry: There was nothing new Friday regarding the status of Bulls center Eddy Curry. Coach Scott Skiles thought Curry might leave early next week to visit another heart specialist in Minnesota.

If Curry is cleared to play again this season, Skiles thinks the fourth-year center could get back on the court quickly.

“A few days off at this point in the season could give you really fresh legs, too, if you are in good shape,” Skiles said. “Of course, we don’t know how long it’s going to be, but I don’t anticipate Eddy coming back and losing a whole lot of conditioning because of it. Then again, I don’t know.”

This isn't good, even though I am confident Eddy will play, but I guess its better to be safe than sorry.

you know, no news is good news :biggrin:

at first, the possibility that he'll see another specialist is a downer. At the same time, you have Skiles talking about Eddy as if he wasn't told anything bad yet...so

Anyone else upset about the manner in which the team's handled Eddy's medical testing? I mean they've basically spent 3 days (Tues, Wed, Thurs.) with a thumb up their *** waiting for who knows what. Now that he's appearantly had tests in Boston, I'd have him on a plane to Minnesota yesterday. Instead, he's waiting until next week (and I'm sure we'll have to endure a nice waiting period between the actual tests and test results). Seriously, WTF?

Not knowing the nature of these tests, perhaps I'm off base with my accusations. But there appears to be no urgency, and I'm just growing frustrated as a fan of being kept in the dark for what will surely be 2+ weeks.

Yeah, I'd say you're way off base. The Bulls are on the verge of making the playoffs for the first time since their championship season in '98. Curry has never played on a winning pro team until this season. And you're accusing one or both parties of taking a nonchalant approach to getting Eddy back on the floor???

Did you ever think that these tests may include trying or combining different medications? Are you that naive to think that all he has to do is pop a pill and abracadabra, you get an instant reaction? FYI, it takes time to load enough preventative medication into a human being's system to become effective. And once a sufficient amount is present in the system, if the body's response isn't satisfactory it can take up to two weeks to clear the original medication out of the system before you can try something different. And during the time you're cleaning out the system to prepare it for new medication you have to be very careful that the ailment (in Curry's case, Arrhythmia) doesn't return.

Chill, and know something about what you're talking about before you start pointing an accusing thumb...er...finger.

I have a feeling he'll probably be out till the end of the regular season. Hopefully he'll back for the playoffs though. :sad:

I hope he can play in the playoffs. Hopefully this time off will help rest his other injuries (hamstring) and get his legs some energy. If he does return, I wonder if he can play at a "Baby Shaq" like level right before the heart condition occured.

I rather not risk anything for an early return, b/c this season has been a huge success for the team. But I don't see us winning the first round against the Wiz or Pacers without Eddy.
