Wildcats back at home
THE New Year period: a time where people commit to resolutions.
For me, it’s about trying to get back on court.
Unfortunately, I sustained a calf strain on the eve of the brutal road trip the team has just faced.
We played three games in nine days, travelling to Cairns, Adelaide and Sydney.
It’s obviously a very frustrating setback to endure at this point of the season.
Every time you sustain an injury, you look at the factors that could have led to it.
Was it a knock? Fatigue? A lack of conditioning?
It’s a tough question to answer because I was feeling the best I’d felt in quite some time.
But there’s no point stewing over it, it’s something I’ll just have to deal with.
It’s a tedious process to get back because the calf can be a difficult muscle to treat.
It’s not smart to rush and risk another injury that could rule me out of the playoffs.
We had a reasonably successful road trip going 2-1 with wins against Cairns and Sydney and dropping against Adelaide.
It doesn’t get any easier for us this week, with the boys set to tackle Melbourne United in a top-of-the-table clash at Perth Arena tomorrow night. Then another plane flight is on the cards in an away clash against Brisbane on Sunday.
I’m sure the boys are eager to get back in front of a passionate home crowd who have been starved of basketball because of the Hopman Cup.
The last time we played at home we laid an egg in a disappointing loss to the Bullets, so I’m expecting the boys to come out firing.
We need a sellout crowd to bring us home.
