Brand’s Been Playing with a Broken Hand

Apr 5, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

Elton’s hand has been bothering him for weeks, but the team hadn’t
disclosed it being fractured until recently, apparently because they
didn’t want opponents targeting it. From the NYTimes,
“The fracture was originally disclosed as an injury that would not
prohibit Brand from playing, apparently out of concern that some
opposing players might target the hand if they knew it was fractured.”
All signs point towards Brand playing through the injury.
