Doctors inserted a pair of screws into his left foot, which forced him to miss six straight games. English came back and finished the season, but he knew his foot still wasn’t right.
So, in early March, English went back under the knife.
“They put another screw in because something was off,” he said. “The doctors said it had hadn’t healed right or the foot was re-broken. Either way, we had to get it right during the offseason. It feels a lot better now and optimistic about my foot’s long term health. Hopefully the second time’s the charm.”
English is taking his time with this rehab, hoping time will heal his wound. “It’ll be right when the season starts,” English said. “It won’t be an issue when this lockout ends and we get going again.”
