Injuries: Maybe we should legalize pot… or something

In a span of minutes this afternoon, news came down the Nuggets will play the rest of the season without JaVale McGee and the Avalanche will play the rest of the season without Alex Tanguay.

While it’s an outstanding year to be a surgeon involved with Colorado sports, it’s a bummer of a year to be a healthy athlete. I mean, really?

—The Rockies were hit, and hard, with injuries to Dexter Fowler, Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzales.

—The Avs lose Tanguay.

—The Nuggets have been without Gallo, McGee, Lawson and, yes, even Nate Robinson.

—The Broncos defense (Moore, Vickerson, Champ, Wolfe, Harris, etc).

The obvious question: So, can marijuana prevent injuries, too?
