Tyrese Haliburton to miss second straight game with calf soreness

The Kings rookie is listed as Out against Charlotte.

The Sacramento Kings will be without Tyrese Haliburton against the Charlotte Hornets. The Kings listed Haliburton as Out in the injury report, missing his second straight game with calf soreness.

Haliburton also missed Friday's game against the Detroit Pistons.

While we obviously don't want the team to rush a player back from injury, it's disappointing that Haliburton will miss the opportunity to face off against LaMelo Ball. Ball and Haliburton are the top two rookies in their class, and the leading contenders to compete for Rookie of the Year honors.

In 30 games this season Haliburton is averaging 13.2 points, 5.4 assists, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.4 steals. Haliburton is shooting 56.2% from the field and 43.3% from 3.

There's been no indication that this injury is anything serious or worth being concerned about, but rather the team being cautious not to further aggravate an injury

Despite the absence of Haliburton, the Kings managed to end a 9-game losing streak with their win over Detroit. The Kings will attempt to make it two in a row.

March 4th: Haliburton’s calf soreness is being “re-evaluated.”
March 11th: Haliburton “feels great” and is “continuing to recover from” calf soreness.
March 21st: Haliburton is cleared to participate in “non-contact drills.”
March 24th: Haliburton leaves practice early “out of an abundance of caution.”
March 28th: Haliburton leaves the team to seek a “second medical opinion” on his calf soreness.
March 30th: Haliburton diagnosed with a “torn calf muscle,” which in turn has become “exacerbated” by a “torn Achilles.” Recovery time: 12 months.

Luckily he’s not Pervis Bagley.

But agreed on the Kings’ lame training staff.

No I’d find anyone in the Kings front office and throw them off a bridge.

Don’t like calf injuries … they are very close in proximity to Achilles injuries.

Very true. It’s like the beginning stages of an upcoming Achilles tear. I pray to Slamson that we’re wrong.

It’s for the best. They need more minutes for their veterans.

This isn’t the first time I’ve wondered about this scenario: Haliburton has a lower body injury, so cannot play on Friday at Detroit. Throughout the game, I see him walking around the sidelines and court during time outs. Sunday night, he’s still unable to play.

Why isn’t he staying off of his feet as much as possible? How can the medical staff claim to be doing everything that they can do for the injured player, while he strolls around on a bum leg?

Like I said, I’ve seen this with players in all sports who aren’t well enough to play, and just wandering around while the team plays. Am I missing something?

A muscle strain doesn’t keep you off your feet. I’ve had several calf pulls/strains over the years, and it was easy to walk but hurt to run.

I understand that it isn’t necessarily completely debilitating, but the calf muscles are still being used, whether walking or running. It seems to me that engaging the muscles as little as possible would lead to faster recovery.

I qualify this by stating that I m not a medical doctor, although as I understand it, neither is anyone on the Kings’ medical staff.
