Yep. Kind of strange, but strange is working.

Alaina and A'ja go way back, so don't read anything into her not being there. I'm sure they have made sure she doesn't reinjure the ankle before the draft.

“Our medical staff just thinks it’s best that she not move around on it and not jump around because the excitement of being at a Final Four, you don’t want to hurt that ankle any further,” Staley told The State. “She was going to come and our medical staff intervened, and we just thought it was best that she just stay off of it.”
Not letting her travel to Dallas enjoy something she helped build is wrong in many different ways.

What's wrong with her ankle? Hairline fracture or something?

This might sound stupid but I think in the long run they did her a favor. As some who as a young dumb@$$ started to feel good after an injury and decided he was all good went and made things much worse and it remains a nagging injury 30 years later I say, Ms. Coates, heal up well, have an amazing professional career, and know you are a big part of what happened.

If she does have a broken bone or fracture, they probably didn't clear her to fly with the team because of an increased risk of blood clots.

If it's a severe sprain, then I don't quite understand the decision.

yeah, she would be too tempted to get back on the floor and convince coach she could play and it would be a distraction for the team. Thinking deeply into it makes more sense. But it still kind of sucks she wasn't there.

The selfish fan in me wanted her to be able to at least step on the court in the championship game. Alaina has been my favorite player to watch and it does kinda suck that she wasn't able to at least make the trip to Dallas.

Alaina was at the ceremony today but the bond with the teammates seemed a little off for some reason.

I'm willing to bet she has some ligament damage. I dislocated my ankle and tore two ligaments and was out of work for three months.

I understand that they explained the reason that she didnt travel or even sit on the bench at the CLA during the 1st & 2nd rounds, but I do believe something happened. If you see her disconnect from the team, you can see some tension. The thought that came to my mind was when she constantly heard that the team was better without her, feelings were hurt. Every single game, every commentator said that the team was better. If I had busted my tail for four years and was carrying my team when no one was looking and all of a sudden I get injured and my team is better I would feel a type of way. Now I do believe the team was better because it allowed KD to be a star.(& we all know that is what her and her parents wanted the whole time) I don't know if I even saw alaina speak to anyone of her teammates. Maybe I'm wrong but I know from watching Alaina for so long that she is very emotional, her attitude comes through on the court(not bad but a beast mode mentality) I think her feelings are hurt. But that is just my pov.

Yeah I totally agree I would be hurt as well. Especially if I felt like my teammates felt that way. She didn't talk to them at all, and when her named was called for achievements they deliberately didn't clap for her. I think what really shocked me and my friends was something we caught during Dawn's speech. When Dawn addressed them facing adversity during the season, Ty said "Yes and I can give you 41 reasons" sooooo yeah I would say something has happened for sure.

At this point, why does it matter?

I hope that she is ok and has a bright future. I'm sorry if her feelings are hurt because of what the media said,. If there is friction between her and her ex-teammates, there really isn't anything that we, as fans, can do.

Honestly, there is probably a LOT more drama than we ever get a chance to see or hear about. Since this isn't something that we need to be concerned about for next year, I would say as far as fans of the program goes, this is a dead issue.
