Player Latrell Mitchell

Without surgery he was looking at 4 weeks. Surgery was season ending.
So….my understanding was that a Lisfranc injury involved a long term treatment and recovery period but it now appears that it’s quite variable in severity. I guess we‘re conditioned to thinking an ACL (as an example) was a year or more out of the game, whereas an MCL was much less severe. Are we to assume that a) it wasn’t a Lisfranc or b) it is a less severe Lisfranc injury ?
 
I saw both after the game and it was chalk and cheese between the 2. Paulo struggling in a moon boot. Latrell rushing to get to his car with no moon boot.
So there you go, Paulo is a lot heavier and his ankle is worse. Case closed :)

Think there are strains and then more serious ones that require surgery? Like any soft tissue situation I’d suppose.
