According to Elliot Friedman on Hockey Night in Canada, Subban’s injury may be worse than we’d thought, and possibly puts his season in danger:
Friedman elaborated on Twitter:
PK Subban, Predators, doctors to meet tomorrow to discuss path to treat what is believed to be a herniated disc...— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) January 1, 2017
Options include rest and hope it improves. Worst-case scenario is surgery, which puts him out a while. Definitely no desire to see that.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) January 1, 2017
Obviously, this is very concerning, but I don’t think we should panic just yet.
