The Dino Nation Blog is happy to report that Nathan Jawai has been cleared to return to full training. It may be a long road to get Nathan up to speed but it appears he is heading down the path to getting is NBA career started. This news has just been released and was reported on the Fan 590. But there was a release issue by the Raptors and as details become available I will update you as I know more.
But this is great news as I personally have got to know a lot about Nathan's background and have been deeply disappointed by his situation and his health issues not allowing him to play. Here is hoping he can move on to have a successful NBA career.
The Toronto Raptors announced Wednesday that forward-centre Nathan Jawai (JA-why) has been cleared to begin physical activity. Jawai has been sidelined since training camp.
Jawai, 22, had been held out for precautionary reasons after an abnormality was detected during normal procedural pre-season cardiac screening.
The club acquired the draft rights to Jawai from the Indiana Pacers on July 9. He was the 41st overall selection in the 2008 NBA Draft. He is the first indigenous player from Australia to be drafted by an NBA team.
