Hamburger Hill

Luke plays through the injury while Vladi opts out.

Interstesting quote in the Tacoma New Tribune:

"There was, however, one negative. Early in the third period, Vladimir Radmanovic rolled his right ankle after Lewis ran into him from behind. Radmanovic got up, ran to the other end, then begged out of the game.

Intentionally or otherwise, Hill ignored Radmanovic, forcing him to stay in the game for another trip before summoning Nick Collison.

When Collison got to the scorer’s table, though, there were another few trips up and down the floor before a break in the action. A dead ball finally stopped play, and Radmanovic immediately went to the locker room to get X-rays. They were negative, and his status for tonight’s game will be determined at a shootaround this morning.

Later in the half, Ridnour bumped knees with a Utah player, and checked out its stability before going to the bench. Ridnour returned, though he was limping in the locker room after the game.

Asked if he would play tonight, he answered, “Of course.”"

Hill's a character. He's pounding his stamp on this team for sure.

Honestly, I can't wait until the next day's reports of the game to hear what he had to say. It's ususally hilarious.

I take this article as saying, "If you still have the ability to stand upright after hurting your ankle, then play."

(note: there are those in basketball that believe in walking/running out ankle injuries rather than rest them.)

Luke also had three stitches to the eye which he returned from. That guy is seriously tough.
