Tony Parker had an even worse ankle injury than Duncan.

Is it the shoes?

I just don't get it. It seems like every time you turn around someone is turning an ankle.

Of course I've played, and yeah I've rolled the ankle a couple of times. It just seems really odd that there has been a TON of ankle injuries this season that have sidelined players for a week or two at a time.

The injuries are definitely way up over the norm. Guess its just a fluke, but it is strange.

Rolling an ankle is one thing. Usually you can just walk it off. The ankle injuries this year have been major. Can't understand it myself.

Thats what I was thinking.

Wasn't in Penny Hardaway that was injured because his shoes didn't fit right?
