The Chinese native became ill Wednesday night after an introductory news conference. He tested positive for mononucleosis and will miss the start of training camp.

By Mike Bresnahan, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
12:11 PM PDT, September 25, 2008

Rookie guard Sun Yue has tested positive for mononucleosis, delaying the start of his Lakers career for an indefinite period.

He appeared to be in good spirits while meeting with local media members Wednesday afternoon, but was taken to a Los Angeles-area hospital a few hours later. He will not be ready for the start of training camp next Tuesday. There is no date for his return.

ATTENTION

I've had alot of experience with this virus, so I can inform you.

Basically, I've had mononucleosis, or as it is more commonly known, "Glandular Fever". I suffered with it for nearly Two years, which is way more than the average lifespan of the virus. Unfortunately, even after it has passed, it can leave effects that last for years. As I said before, I've had it for a very long time (cleared now), my cousin is currently suffering it and my Mum had it twice.

For me personally, every four weeks I would be completely out a week with a soar throat. I couldn't eat anything. I would lose a fair amount of weight. This will probably happen to Sun as well. One of the other major effects of this virus is fatigue. The fatigue this virus can give you SHOULD NOT BE UNDERESTIMATED! Even when he is supposedly "healthy", he will probably only be playing at 40%. He will also have all the other symptoms an illness will give you ( Headache, fever and so forth). Don't laugh, but this virus can also give you depression. Pain in the joints are common as well. I had extreme pain in the back of my knees when I had it.

Other post effects can include:

ME (which is effectively a career postponing illness I think).
Weakness in immune system which could lead to other illnesses.
Post depression due to chemical inbalance.

I feel sorry for the guy, because I have, and I know others who have suffered badly because of this illness. I will definitely stick up for him if people criticize him. You have to understand how fatigued he will feel all through the season.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for the virus, hence the, "There is no date for his return." line. It goes when it goes. If he gets 6 weeks of COMPLETE rest, no hard work at all, it will help the process. One thing is that he can't kiss anyone :lol:. The only way the virus is spread is through saliva.

By the way, I think in America it's called a disease, in Europe is it a "virus". It could be classified as both.

Hope this helps other Laker fans to appreciate how hard this will be for him, get well soon Yue! I will be rooting for you.

Not to detract from the potential seriousness of the health problem but...

7 posts without ONE Lakers Girls joke? I'm disappointed.

Not as common in adults and usually is more severe the older you are.

My daughter just had a severe case of Strep throat accompanied by mono (she's 9). Missed about 2 weeks from school. Fever, facial swelling, fatigue (sleeping 20 hours/day), drooling, HORRIBLE BREATH...

What a setback for the rook!!!


Either way, shouldn't be too bad. No cure. Just steroids for the symptoms. He'll survive.

I'm sorry for your daughter, but Strep Throat isn't a permanent thing.

The affects of Glandular Fever last alot longer. Imagine your daughter's symptoms (minus the bad breath) but lasting for several weeks and then the fatigue lasting a year.

Strep isn't permanent but Mono can be. Not that you will ALWAYS have symptoms. You will always be a carrier (IIRC).

I used to date a girl that missed a whole year from school with mono (high school). This was LONG before I knew what mono was and long after her symptoms dissipated. I never got mono. And trust me, I was exposed to it...in many, MANY ways.


Just luck of the draw. Not career-ending or threatening...just something he'll have to roll with.

You don't understand, mono IS Glandular Fever. They are the same illnesses.

:lol:

I made a post earlier in this thread saying about my bad experience with it. If anyone on this board knows about Mono (or Glandular fever as it is commonly known) I do.
