Jonas Valanciunas, nearly four weeks removed from surgery for his dislocated thumb, has shed his splint/cast and is now working out with more of a hand wrap.
Expect another update on JV soon, though Nick Nurse did let it slip that Valanciunas is expected to miss 3-to-4 more weeks as of last weekend. With Big Science possibly returning in two weeks, it's time to consider stashing him where available. Greg Monroe will fall out of the rotation when Valanciunas is back in action.
