Manny Harris Waived by Cavs After Suffering Freezer Burn on Foot
Harris was waived by the Cavs last week after being unable to practice because of an injury to his right foot. The guard suffered freezer burn on his foot after stepping into a Cryon-X cooling chamber. Cryotherapy chambers have become popular with athletes recently, but Harris reportedly made the mistake of walking in with a wet sock.
Harris tweeted two weeks ago “2nd degree burn on my foot, havent practiced with the team yet, got injured in a way that was totally out of my control!!”
Sounds like the injury may have been his fault, contrary to what he says. What sucks is that he was unable to be treated by the team’s doctors because of the lockout, delaying his possible recovery. Cleveland lost its season opener 104-96 Monday without him. That’s a pretty painful way to learn a tough lesson.
