Sasha to attempt to return to practice.

``I'm going to see what I can do. It may not be 5-on-5 stuff,'' he said Sunday.``We'll just have to see.''
Vujacic sprained his ankle on the first day of camp. At the time, it was thought to be a minor issue. But when it was slow to heal, more tests were done and team doctors concluded he had what is called an avulsion fracture, which is when a tendon or ligament pulls away thin piece of bone is pulled away, and would miss 10-14 days.
Well, it hasn't even been a week and Vujacic is already trying to make a return. Though judging by how anxious he seemed to get back into practice last week during practice, it's not all that surprising.
Vujacic was constantly working out, whether it was biking, swimming or lifting weights. He'd shoot free throws or 3-pointers after practice and was still one of the last guys to leave the Lakers training facility every day.
Don't know if there's another thread about this..but hopefully Sasha will be back before season starts.

I don't want him to attempt nothing, that's what I'm afraid about Sasha, he is too impulsive, we don't need him until the regular season.
Thats exactly how I feel. I'm so nervous. I am praying he doesn't get any worse. Hopefully he really is "the machine".

Inside The Lakers: Apparently, the repairman was able to fix things on the Lakers “Machine” a bit ahead of schedule. Sasha Vujacic (ankle) returned to practice Monday morning, a bit ahead of schedule and was able to complete almost the entire practice.
“I did take a little break, I don’t want to go too crazy,” Vujacic said. “But I didn’t feel any sharp pain, so that’s good. There was a little discomfort, which is normal. We’ll just have to see if it swells up. If it does, we have to slow it down. But it feels good now.”
Vujacic has been out most of training camp with a sprained ankle, which he suffered on the first day of camp. After the ankle was slow to heal, he was re-examined and an avulsion fracture –where a thin piece of bone is peeled away by a ligament or tendon –was discovered. At that point, he was projected to miss 10-14 days. That was just six days ago.
“My goal is to be ready for the first game (on October 28),” he said. “And it’s going to take me two or three days of practice to come back into shape.”
