Tayshaun Prince is groin to give it a go

A recent tweet by Adam Himmelsbach suggests the possibility that we might see Tayshaun Prince in tonight's tilt with the Knicks.

Tayshaun Prince said there's a good chance he won't play tonight (hip flexor) but will go through treatment and try.

As indicated in the tweet, Prince has a hip flexor. Fortunate, too, since everydayhealth.com indicates that most fully-assembled humans do:

The hip flexor is a group of muscles that allow you to lift your knees and bend at the waist. Found deep in the abdominal cavity, they are some of the strongest muscles in the body.

Of particular note in Prince's case is that his are causing him pain. The website goes on to explain:

You put a lot of stress on your hip flexors when you sprint or kick. That’s why athletes, especially runners, soccer players, and martial artists, are especially prone to hip flexor injuries that result in hip flexor pain. Hip flexor pain is usually felt in the upper groin region, where the thigh meets the pelvis.

So there you have it. So, despite Prince's importance to the team and our temptation to simply have him push through the pain, let's not forget that the discomfort is centered around his pelvis.

Pain is pain, that's for sure, but like they say in real estate - location, location, location.
