Earlier this week, Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert joked that he is going to wear a cup the next time he faces LaMarcus Aldridge because of all the shots to the groin he took against the Portland Trail Blazers. Perhaps the big man should worry about getting his shockingly massive elbow checked out before he does anything else.
Hibbert shared an Instagram photo on Wednesday that makes it seem like he is suffering from one of the worst cases of elbow bursitis you will ever see.
“Elbow looking extra fat today,” he wrote. “Bout to go do my pregame shooting. Doesn’t hurt #focused.”
Our friends at Next Impulse Sports noted that the issue has been going on for quite some time. Hibbert posted this photo on Instagram five months ago.
That can’t be healthy, can it? Whatever the case, it’s obviously something the former Georgetown star can play through. It’s still terrifying.
