The Detroit Pistons announced today the following injury update regarding forward Charlie Villanueva.
Following repeated imaging studies as well as multiple consultations from foot and ankle orthopedic surgeons, it has been determined that Charlie Villanueva’s right ankle soreness can be attributed to a resolving posterior tibial tenosynovitis with small talotibal spurs.
A few weeks of partial ankle immobilization have been recommended in an attempt to alleviate the soreness and discomfort.
He will be re-evaluated after that period.
