Gibson: I Played Through Torn Ligament During Playoffs



(Taj) Gibson, who had left ankle surgery in mid-June, revealed at his City Basketball ProCamp on Saturday in Deerfield that he played through a torn ligament during the playoffs.

“The doctor was astounded. He said he never knew anybody who could play through so much pain. I just thought it was normal,” said Gibson who sprained the ankle three times last season and has battled ankle issues in two of the last three years. “He was surprised I was even able to run or lift off it.”

At the time of the surgery, the Bulls estimated Gibson would return to full basketball activity in four months. That’s mid-October. Not surprisingly, Gibson, who is running and cutting and performing one-on-one drills, is itching to beat that.
