One of the problems is that stress fractures which are created by over use or weakened bones, in athletes in track and field and basketball or other running and jumping sports, run a risk of being recurring injuries. That risk goes up even more when you are talking about big men.
That is another reason why this is so risky. He may not have much of a career.
It is however, possible that that he heals and is fine and has a career with no problems.
The risk is drafting a guy that never really plays or has to have minutes and practice time managed to prevent over use of his feet.
I don't know. I just would be scared to take this guy in the top 10. once you get to 14/15 then you have to consider risk reward. But in top 10 there are good players with less risk.
