As the draft approaches, it’s important for all teams to have accurate information about all prospects. Toward that end, former USC defensive end Rasheem Green has provided accurate information about his health to all teams. Specifically, about his left knee.
Green suffered a torn ACL in the left knee during high school. He had reconstructive surgery, along with a subsequent a cleanup procedure performed by the USC team doctor.
So what happened? Dr. Khalfayan thinks Green moved his knee while in the MRI machine.
Green is regarded as a likely second-round pick. He’s currently No. 5 on Mike Mayock’s list of top edge rushers.
But last year’s No. 7 overall pick said he felt 100 percent after back problems limited him to 10 games and 11 receptions.
I’m excited about this year to not only prove to everybody else, but prove to myself that I know who I am and what I can be, Williams said, via the team’s official website. I’m real confident in my abilities. I wasn’t capable of doing what I can do last year because of the injury. This offseason, I feel 100 percent. I’m ready to go out Adrian Kempe Jersey there and dominate.

Elite Youth Mario Edwards Jr Jersey Williams tweaked his back in rookie minicamp shortly after being drafted, and missed the rest of the offseason program and struggled throughout the year.
Critiquing the shot selection of a team leader who rebounded his position well, dished out six assists, accepted defensive challenges (witness DeRozan blunting Wall at the basket on a break in the game’s opening minutes) seems a bit exacting. He accounted for only four of the Raptors’ 18 unsightly turnovers. While DeRozan might have taken some ill-advised shots, the Raptors also suffered from an occasional unwillingness to take the sorts of open looks they shot with ease and great effect back in Toronto.
