As we saw earlier this week, AJ Griffin went down with what looked to be a serious knee injury.

Fortunately that’s not the case: he was diagnosed with a sprained knee. This article says it was both a sprained knee and a dislocated knee. We’re not sure those are the same things but either way he’s not going to need surgery and should be back on the court in a couple of weeks. Fortunate break for him and for his high school team, Archbishop Stepinac. You hate to see anyone injured obviously but he’s exceptionally promising and from all accounts a very solid student and all around person.

21st Century kid that he is, Griffin Face Timed the news to his teammates. His dad would have used the phone on the wall and his grandfather might have sent a telegram.

Small bit of trivia: when telegraphs showed up, although there was no Tinder, couples began to engage in long-distance courting. Nothing much really changes does it?
