Excuse me, but where in the body is the "tibula" bone? I'm not familiar with that bone. I know all of the other 212 bones. Could this be the missing 213th?
Wilkins mother wrote on her Facebook page: "Jordan broke his tibula and tore a ligament he will probably have surgery Tuesday."
I'm guessing she hit the wrong key when trying to type "fibula." Josh, in rushing to get you your free news simply reported what she said and what else has been reported.
@John at MrSEC I actually kinda assumed that after I posted my comment. Sorry about that--medical guy here. I always get peeved when reports misuse medical terms like "strained" and "sprained."
I'll come back off of the ledge now. Keep up the good work!
Interesting. I'll try to remember that from here on out.
Thanks again for reading,
@John at MrSEC You "strain" a muscle or tendon. You "sprain" a ligament. Feel free to contact me anytime with medical related questions.
Now -- to prevent you from getting on my case in the future -- what IS the difference between a strain and a sprain? I thought they were two ways of saying the same thing. I'll have to hit a medical website or two apparently.
Thanks in advance,
