Still, my trust of the Knicks medical staff is not exactly at an all time high. And in the case of something like ulnar nerve compression, it's really hard to say since even Fields may not have been aware that there was a problem or even symptoms that needed reporting to a team physician.
And yes, I'm happy with Brewer.
Fields may still be overpaid even if you were going exclusively by his first year rookie stats. However, at this point I'm putting my judgement on him as a player on hold until we see a reasonable sample of his performance post-surgery.
