Hamstrings can be a big pain, subject to re-aggravation and compensation injuries elsewhere if they’re not 100%. It sure would be unfortunate if Wright’s offseason workout schedule was compromised due to an injury in some meaningless game in the last two weeks of the season. But I suppose that’s between him, his doctor and his hamstring.
