I wasn't at practice today, but Craig Stouffer of the Washington Examiner was, so he had a chance to ask Randy Wittman about the left foot pain Trevor Booker said he has been experiencing this season. Here's Wittman's response.
Spoke briefly w/ Wittman, confirmed Booker has plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Like Book tweeted, not expected to miss time. #Wizards— Craig Stouffer (@CraigStouffer) March 23, 2012
If you'll recall, here's what Booker said about the injury last night, unprovoked.
"I'm not sure what the diagnosis is, but it feels like I'm running with a nail in my foot. It's been going on for two months now, but it's just getting worse."
Booker later tweeted that he doesn't expect to miss any time with the injury. Several players have suffered from plantar fasciitis in recent years, including Rajon Rondo and Tony Parker. Both played through the injury at different times, and while it limited their effectiveness a bit, they were still able to fight through the pain.
