That's pretty much how I handled it. I knew something wasn't right with my leg/knee. The femur was causing an issue with my knee/groin trying to overcompensate for protecting it.
One day I was working out doing sprints and I tore my miniscus in my right knee. After UPMC did the MRI, they found the bone issue and gave me 3 options: 1) Status Quo, 2) Rehab, 3) Surgery. Surgery was the most invasive and would cause me to be in a wheelchair for 4 months, but it was the only thing that would fix the issue.
Whitney probably had some nagging issue with his foot that he knew was there but may have not known the severity or reasoned how bad it was with him since he could probably do everything normally in life (other than consistent high performance athletics without breaking down).
I'm wondering if this is the reason why Whitney looked apprehensive at times/not as aggressive in his offensive play last season.
