Brand Cleared for Running and Jumping

Fix the Clips?  Well, it starts here.  Elton Brand was back in Delaware today to get his Achilles examined and the news was all good.  Here's the press release, hot off the email -

Los Angeles Clippers' forward Elton Brand had his surgically repaired left Achilles tendon re-examined today by Dr. Craig Morgan at Christiana Care's Wilmington Hospital in Wilmington, Delaware.  During the examination Brand was advised by Dr. Morgan that he has been cleared to begin extensive running and jumping exercises on the court.  Brand is scheduled to be examined by team physician Dr. Tony Daly upon his return to Los Angeles.

The next step in the rehabilitation process will lead to Brand returning to team drills and his eventual return to full practice.

Brand originally sustained the injury during his daily workout on Friday, August 3rd at the Spectrum Club South Bay in El Segundo, California.  Dr. Morgan performed the surgery to repair the injury on Tuesday, August 7th.

If you watched the broadcast on KTLA last night, you probably heard Ralph saying that he witnessed a Brand workout at Staples in which he was cutting and shooting, and in short, looked fine playing basketball.  

We needed some good news, with all the angst around here lately.
