The Chicago Bulls announced today that the battery of tests performed on Eddy Curry this past week for his irregular heart beat was inconclusive and that he will now undergo further evaluation by a group of specialists in Boston and in Minnesota
Boston and Minnesota???

Looks like he won't return so fast.

Ugh. Sometimes not knowing something is wrong with you (or thinking there could be) is worse than knowing something that is.

Here's to hoping they find nothing in further tests.

Othella's back, so Eddy's presence will not be missed not as much as we have seen the past two games. Hopefully the new daddy will be well rested by Friday (although I somehow doubt it).

same press release now on bulls.com


minnesota can mean only one thing: the mayo clinic.


this does not bode well - obviously we want eddy to be 100% healthy and his longterm health is more important, but we need him for the playoffs!!!

:cry:

Obviously they are hiding something or not telling us the entire truth, and we cant fault them for doing so. Thats a personal decision.

Get well soon, Eddy!

This isn't good. Either they're hiding something or they simply just are unsure. Either way, it's not positive and it's somewhat scary to me.

As far as the team goes, if he's not back for the playoffs, we're in trouble.

Yeah I agree...it's bad. We will be limping into the postseason instead of on the surge like we were starting to go on. And if we don't have Curry back and in condition for the start of the playoffs we could very easily be looking at a first round exit. Of course, even scarier is the fact that Eddy has something so wrong with him. I think it has to be more serious than is being let on because I am sure Curry & his agents definitley wouldn't want all of this negative medical attention in a contract year otherwise.

Absolutely sounds like they are unsure.

In todays world such unsurity can lead to legal catasrophe. Add that into the human element as well. I hope Eddy is healthy, but you cannot blame the team for taking every precaution.

Well, sooner or later everyone will know about this, is not something they are going to be able to hide. And if he doesnt return this season, you know its something serious.
And Im sure every team would take a look at Curry's medical records before they attempt to sign him. And if it gets to that point, is because the Bulls already knew he is done (Otherwise he would get re-signed ASAP).

And yes, without Curry we are looking at a first round exit. Without Curry AND Deng. Dont forget we wont have Luol ******* Deng!

Whats next?

:curse:

My guess...Eddy, like most Americans, has had a few too many hamburgers from Burger King. Hopefully they get him whatever it is that he needs and we see him on the court next fall.

If Eddy has coronary artery disease (which is what you're implying) to the extent that it's causing him chest discomfort and palpitations, his career is over, over, over.

Unless there are guys in the NBA who've had angioplasties and bypasses and stuff and I just haven't heard about it.

I just hope they are just being super-extra-cautious about this and a trip to minny. This must be a difficult time for Eddy and family.

And I am almost certain that Eddy will be back, in full health.

It's certainly a possiblity that they are hiding something, but it is my opinion that them saying they couldn't find anything in tests is what it is.

Why release false information? Something saying "Eddy needs to undergo further testing and we have nothing else to release at this point" would have me worried.

I'm sure they are taking every precaution, because it is quite possibly a life threatening decision he could be making by deciding to return to play right away. I know I sure would take every precautionary measure that any doctor would recommend if I were in Eddy's shoes.

I comment on this because my brother had the same sort of conidtion when playing soccer. He would get the "racing heart and dizziness." It took doctors 4 years before they were finally able to properly diagnose what he had because they could not duplicate and monitor the condition whenever it seemed to happen (playing sports).

I don't remember what the condition my brother had was called off the top of my head, but they had to do a procedure two summers ago where they stopped his heart, and gave it an electrical charge to start it back up. He has experienced no problems since the procedure, and he has been back to full physical activity about 4-6 months after the procedure. Doctors were not worried about any risks with the procedure, and specialist have said that heart medicine has gone a long way in recent years. This put my family's hearts at ease in regards to my brother, and his too. His condition was definately more "scary" than it was "serious."

Worst case scenerio is Eddy has what my brother has from the reports being given. I think any sort of heart disease is probably out of the question by now, unless of course they are hiding something.

Here is what is going on. Yesterday Eddy was cleared to play basketball again because they found no signs of any heart diseases from their tests. But the Bulls medical staff recommends that Eddy gets more tests because they THINK that Eddy really has a heart problem and the tests just weren't detecting it. Same medical staff that couldn't figure out Jalen has a broken hand. So the bottom line is that Paxson is planning on making an investment in Eddy this summer and wants to make sure there is nothing wrong with him, so the team is paying for lots of medical testing. The team just needs to get Eddy back on the court so the team can play, the doc cleared him to play.

I'm buying what you're selling, sloth, because it goes down smooth...real smooth.

:)

To be honest, this doesn't sound good at all...no Eddy...no Luol...this is painful...

Is it too early to start the "Shareef Abdur-Rahim, please sign with us for less money to replace our missing inside scoring and play on a winner" club?
