No clear response to injuries

first_imgBecause, while it is true that many of those casualties are occurring due to muscle ailmentss, the last of Gayà yesterday for discomfort in the thigh. It seems that the team that has entered a spiral of bad luck. Those who suffer fiber breakage are added those that ‘break’ unexpectedly as were Soler, Piccini or Garay. And to top it off, a soccer player like Florenzi, who said Murthy himself was coming to play games like Atalanta’s, take chickenpox. Above problems between the harrow and the board, layoffs of doctors and trainers, or name transfers. The current season is being clearly marked by the injuries that Valencia is suffering. In the accumulated 7 months of competition, so just Wass, Jaume, Parejo and Correia have not gone through the infirmary, and yesterday was his own Celades who admitted not having found the exact reason.“When we recover a soccer player, another one falls or is injured“.” We have been living with the casualties all year. “It seems that we grow dwarfs “. Those were some of yesterday’s phrases from a Celades who encouraged his team “to reveal themselves” to the plague they are living. However, The technician has been looking for the specific reason that explains why a piece of equipment falls out every week, however it is not having it easy. All this causes those who are healthy have to accumulate more minutes on their legs, which, in the long term again leads to muscle injuries. Like the one Gayà suffered yesterday after having played the last month without rest.However, Celades also admitted that he has been trying for weeks to find the exact reason for so many problems in the physique of his players. The Catalan explained that he has considered all aspects, the type of training, the hardness of the grass etc. But, for the moment, it seems that it remains without a clear answer to a growing problem.last_img read more

Clippers posse up, beat Sonics

first_imgThe shorthanded Clippers again played without Elton Brand and Corey Maggette. But they blew out the Seattle SuperSonics anyway. Buoyed by 25 points with 10 rebounds from Chris Kaman, the Clippers won a second consecutive game with a 98-72 victory in front of 18,099 Saturday night at Staples Center. The Clippers led by as many as 28 points in the fourth quarter and by 17 in the first half. Drama surrounding the game was hardly apparent, but there was some Clipper drama as coach Mike Dunleavy had a meeting earlier in the day with Corey Maggette to explain the possibility of swapping him for Indiana’s Ron Artest. Indiana rejected that trade. Another factor that hindered the trade is that Maggette is expected to be out six weeks with a separated ligament in his left foot. Indiana’s medical staff did not give the Pacers the go-ahead to make the deal. Where all of this puts Dunleavy and the Clippers is a place where Maggette knows the team wanted to trade him. The Clippers swingman, however, says he understands the nature of the business. The Clippers didn’t need Maggette on Saturday. But the Sonics were shorthanded, too, without Ray Allen, who served the second game of a three-game suspension for fighting with former Clipper and current Orlando Magic guard Keyon Dooling. Brand also was out with a bruised right hip, but he was in uniform and is considered day to day. The Clippers led by 17 points in the second quarter after a 16-0 run and entered the fourth quarter with a 76-58 lead. Kaman shot 10 of 12 from the field to tie a career high and season high with 25 points. Sam Cassell joined Kaman with a strong game with 24 points and six assists. Rashard Lewis scored 22 points to lead Seattle, which lost its fifth of six games. The Sonics also were without starting center Reggie Evans, who was sick, and Kaman took advantage of that. “When they went with a small lineup, we tried to punish them,” Kaman said. “And we did a decent job. We turned the ball over a couple times on the double-teams, and I was frustrated a little bit. But overall, it was good.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

While Dunleavy says he still is optimistic about this season, that attitude didn’t prevent him and general manger Elgin Baylor from meeting with the controversial Artest in an effort to trade Maggette for him. “We’re totally confident about where we are and what our direction is,” Dunleavy said. “As it comes down to it, we have responsibilities to explore every opportunity that’s out there. Along the way, we haven’t hidden the fact we’ve had an interest. And that’s true. We have had an interest in Artest. He’s a unique talent, and so you talk to people, you talk about different things, potential deals that can work and cannot work.” As the Clippers try to recover from missing the injured Maggette, Dunleavy also confirmed that the Clippers have contacted veteran free agent Latrell Sprewell to gauge his interest in signing with them. Artest, who was suspended 72 games last season for his role in a brawl in Detroit, has been on the Pacers’ inactive list since Dec. 12, two days after demanding to be traded. He is a former All-Star who some consider among the elite players in the league, while Maggette has never been an All-Star but has been solid as the Clippers’ second leading scorer. last_img read more
