Dude's got a high pain threshold, at least in public.

I can't get the image of his calf muscle rippling like that out of my head.

I don’t know how you walk on a fully ruptured Achilles. NFL players do that and they are forced to get carted off because they can’t put weight on it.

I would like to wish Kevin a speedy recovery. And I look forward to seeing him back in the court on 2020.

He went full tilt to appease the fans and his teammates. Anyone who has ever called him a bitch is wrong. I put myself in that camp.

Sorry, KD.

Kobe shot his free throws and walked off the court when it happened to him. But then again it's Kobe.

Everyone knew this was the case. I hoped it wasn't. No matter how much I dislike you, I wish injury on no one. I hope he can have a full recovery. See you in Oct, 2020.

re: It's been confirmed: KD has a ruptured achilles
You can still stand after a ruptured Achilles. It is extremely difficult to plantar flex (point toe down) or stand on your tip toes though.


From the British Journal of General Practice - Achilles tendon rupture: how to avoid missing the diagnosis

EXAMINATION
Look
Swelling and bruising are variable and not reliable.

Feel
Tenderness is very likely but may not be at the precise level that is expected. A gap in the tendon is frequently not evident (local swelling masking this).

Move
Because several other tendons (long toe flexors, tibialis posterior, peronei, plantaris) pass from the calf to the foot, some active plantar movement of the ankle is usually still possible. Passive movement is affected by pain but not actually limited. Active dorsiflexion is unaffected.

Points to remember
Patients with rupture of the Achilles tendon can still walk.

Patients with rupture of the Achilles tendon can still actively move the ankle up and down.

Patients with an Achilles tendon rupture may even manage to stand on tiptoes (on both feet together — though not on the injured limb alone).

Patients with an Achilles tendon rupture will not always have a palpable gap in the tendon.

Special tests
Clinicians will never be falsely reassured by these history and examination findings if they remember to assess for Achilles tendon rupture specifically with the Simmonds’ calf squeeze test.

Simmonds’ test, first described in 19575 by Franklin ‘Sam’ Simmonds, and subsequently by Thompson in 1962,6 should be understood and remembered by all medical and physiotherapy practitioners. It is an excellent test, perhaps the closest that there is to ‘the perfect clinical test’.

Did he even grimace? His facial expression was matter of fact'ish and he just signaled the trainers over.

I ruptured my left achilles. The pain after the injury is minimal. The pain after the surgery sucks.

Stability is the issue. You can walk over it but there's nothing there to provide stability forward and backward.

He’s still a bitch, but I respect him for playing. If anything maybe he comes back with thicker skin.
