Many reasons why he won't show up anytime soon:
First, we don't even really know the severity of the injury. No, I'm not trying to make the comparision between the last injury and this one, but afterall, he did limp off the court. I never really bought how icing was going to cure the last injury (even though that's what Ainge said) when he went down in Utah because when I saw the injury with my eyes wide open, I just knew it was much more than that. Same with this one, I'm not panicin but facing the ice cold fact.
If he were to show up and the fans see that he's still limping, grimacing, not walking right, they sure are going to question Ainge's 2 week timeframe. KG won't show up until he can at least stand still and walk without limping like he did in the Chicago & Magic series.
The Celtics organization is much more secretive with KGs injury compared to any other player just because they understand the importance of this guy's health and how much his health means to the franchise chasing #18.
For all we know from Ainge, he's out for 2 weeks and that's Ainge being on the conservative side. Why haven't we heard anything from any other player/coach/Ed since the MRI? That we don't know and we won't know because they won't say anything other than "hopefully he comes back fully healthy very soon." No information on the progress, no nothing.
For me, I will not be surprised at all if he doesn't come back even after the all-star break. They sure ain't going to force him to play knowing what happened last time they did that.
I hope I'm wrong. Truly.
In the meantime, I hope Rondo and Delonte come back sooner than expected, esp. Delonte. I understand Rondo is going to have to deal with his hammy and now ankle throughout the season, but boy this team should be in a much better survivor mode if we just had delonte.
