Sullinger Red Flagged by NBA Doctors

Not looking good for him and he could fall out of the lottery and possibly further than that. I would still consider taking him but not with a top ten pick.

That could do serious damage to his stock, as if his horrible athleticism results hadn't done so enough

To be honest, I didn't even see

him in the top 14 before. However, I got his back on this one. He's a solid post player and should be picked up in the first round regardless.

Soo

Is he the next Dejuan Blair? People already regret skipping over him. Sully may not be a star, but I just don't see any way in which he is a bust.

i knew

I knew he would eventually have back problems and his inuries this season was no fluke, his left leg is longer than his right leg so it causes friction on his back when he runs

Dejaun Blair was never the

Dejaun Blair was never the prospect that Sullinger was so I don't see him falling out of the first round but I could see him falling to the Celtics spots perhaps. I think he will have a good career because of his size and skill so as long as he stays healthy he can be a good NBA player.

Sullinger may drop but I can

Sullinger may drop but I can see him doing well in the NBA but with some many forwards in this draft, it would be unwise to take a chance on him early and miss out of someone because there is a risk involved when you talk about back injuries. Injuries with your back is still a big issue more so than leg problems.

I think if he works on losing

I think if he works on losing weight and increases his flexibility that may help but the thing is some of Oden's issues with his legs had to due with muscles tightness and his body not being balanced correctly.

This is going to hurt his

This is going to hurt his stock big time...

Back issues are no joke...

Sullinger has Sean May written all over him.
