• Steve Clifford said that rookie combo guard Malik Monk’s left ankle sprain reported in late June was a “significant injury,” and that recently he couldn’t finish an optional workout that “wasn’t physically demanding.”

    Monk was originally supposed to miss 2-4 weeks and this sounds like he’s running up a near three-month bill on being out of action.  It’s pretty clear that this was more than just an ankle sprain and/or it’s a nasty high ankle sprain, and either way this is going to be something to watch during his career because this type of stuff can leave a mark.  Monk’s not slated for big minutes this year even if he’s the backup point guard instead of Michael Carter-Williams (knees), so owners in most redraft formats can ignore him.
