Arnie Kander declares Jonas Jerebko’s right Achilles tendon healed


Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press:

"There is great news on the Jerebko front. The torn right Achilles tendon that forced him to miss the entire season is healed and all that’s left for Jerebko to complete rehab is to gain strength in his legs, according to Pistons strength and conditioning coach Arnie Kander."

I think everyone believed Jonas Jerebko would be ready for the start of next season, even if it begins on time, anyway. But the confirmation is certainly nice, as is this:

"When the fans next see Jerebko he will be 20 pounds heavier.“But he still moves as well as he did before,” Kander said.Kander also said today:The team was pretty healthy going into the off-season and there weren’t any lingering health issues."
