How to Interpret this McGary Interview?

Submitted by GrowBlue on October 28th, 2013 at 9:25 AM

I haven't seen this MaizeAndBlueNews interview discussed here.

Sorry to be negative on Monday morning, but I'm finding it a bit hard to be optimistic about his back 'condition'. Beilein tends to be much more open about things than Hoke, and he is being quite vague on this topic. In the video I linked, McGary is asked 'When was the last time that you were able to play basketball full-go?', and after a very long pause, while looking off camera to someone on his left, he responds 'I don't feel comfortable answering that.'

Talk me off a ledge?

Perhaps this is all blown out of proportion - hopefully he plays tomorrow and allays all my fears ;)

I draw optimism from his demeanor. He doesn't look like a guy who's worried about his career or even his season...Also, he did well at a camp this summer, so this can't have been going on for too long.

Not thread worthy, so I'll post it in here. But will the game tomorrow we televised or streamed online anywhere? I know it's just an exibition game, but I need my basketball fix. Thanks.

What is so grim about that article? Both Beilein and McGary suggest that he's not in much pain at the moment, but they're being cautious. There is no reason to not believe them.  Why would they lie?  I don't think we need to gain a strategic advantage over our exhibition opponents.
