Pistons discuss Charlie Villanueva's ankle injury

The mystery of what is going on with Charlie Villanueva‘s ankle gets some clarity, via David Mayo of YELLOWMLive:

The Detroit Pistons updated Charlie Villanueva’s status in a medical-lingo-heavy press release Friday, which essentially indicated he has tendinitis and bone spurs in his ailing right ankle and that he will be partially immobilized for “a few weeks.”

Here’s the “lingo-heavy” release Mayo referred to:

Following repeated imaging studies as well as multiple consultations from foot and ankle orthopedic surgeons, it has been determined that Charlie Villanueva’s right ankle soreness can be attributed to a resolving posterior tibial tenosynovitis with small talotibal spurs.

A few weeks of partial ankle immobilization have been recommended in an attempt to alleviate the soreness and discomfort.

That fits with what a team spokesman said the course of action would be with Villanueva, despite Villanueva possibly saying that he needs surgery.
