Maurice Creek told the Twitter world Monday that he played in a pick-up game for the first time since fracturing his knee in December. Tuesday, he confirmed that he did in fact get back on the court, though that did not necessarily indicate that he was completely recovered.
“It was pretty good from working hard every day with (athletic trainer Tim Garl),” Creek said Tuesday. “Yesterday, he said I could play a couple of games. He wasn’t here yesterday, but I felt pretty good playing. It’s just taking it one day at a time. I felt probably 70, 75 percent playing on it. There’s still a couple of tweaks here and there. but as far as being back on the court, it felt pretty good.”
Creek said the knee itself is completely recovered, but there is still physical and mental rehabilitation to be done yet. Physically, he has to get the strength back in his quadriceps muscle, which atrophied while he was recovering from surgery.
“It’s the tendons and the muscles,” Creek said. “The muscles are not back to where they are supposed to be. You can tell. … As far as I’m concerned that’s the most important part of my knee right now is getting the quad muscles back and getting my leg stronger at the top.”
Creek said he isn’t certain how often he will be playing in pick-up games for the time being. He didn’t play Tuesday, instead doing more strength and conditioning work with the quadriceps.
“Today it’s me getting back in the cold tank and just resting up,” Creek said. “Getting out there with the guys and doing the weightlifting stuff. It’s a day-to-day process. I think I’m just going to take it one day at a time and see how it feels. If it feels right, I’m going to go out there and play with the guys, but if I feel as if I need to rest up, I’ll just rest up.”
