The Pioneer Press is reporting Jonny Flynn is struggling to allowing himself to get to full speed since getting back to practice after his July 27th hip surgery.
“In my mind, you feel tightness in certain areas, so you don’t want to go past certain barriers,” Flynn said Saturday. “That’s why you don’t see me exploding like I used to or showing that pop in my legs. I’m still trying to get past that.”
Flynn said he’s improving by the day and getting closer to informing the Wolves’ medical and coaching staffs that he’s ready to play. When that time comes, Flynn said he would agree to play “a game or two” with the Sioux Falls Skyforce, the Wolves’ affiliate in the NBA Development League.
He was projected to be ready to play by mid- to late November, but the time frame now appears to be early December.
What he is going through is very typical for athletes, ecstatically when it is there “first major” injury. But Flynn will get back to his old self and I would imagine getting back to the court would help.
