Medical reason for TC's slow start?
So it wasn't all mental.Chandler finds stamina: After gasping for breath on the court for three weeks, Tyson Chandler finally saw a doctor on Monday and was diagnosed with a hiatal hernia. That condition is defined as when the stomach pushes through the opening where the esophagus passes through the diaphragm.
“I kept on wondering why I was getting winded so early,” Chandler said. “That’s why I was breathing hard all the time and couldn’t get any oxygen.”
Doctors scoped Chandler’s throat and prescribed medicine. Now Chandler said he feels better every day.
