Flynn Struggles With Mental Block

November 22, 2010

Second year guard Johnny Flynn is struggling on a comeback since his hip surgery. Certainly, the Wolves need him and his stability at point guard, but no rush is needed since the Wolves aren’t fighting for playoff position.

From Pioneer Press:

Wolves point guard Jonny Flynn, struggling to regain his form after hip surgery in July, admitted Saturday that he’s dealing with a “mental block” that often prevents him from going full speed in conditioning workouts and drills.

“In my mind, you feel tightness in certain areas, so you don’t want to go past certain barriers,” Flynn said Saturday. “That’s why you don’t see me exploding like I used to or showing that pop in my legs. I’m still trying to get past that.”

Flynn said he’s improving by the day and getting closer to informing the Wolves’ medical and coaching staffs that he’s ready to play. When that time comes, Flynn said he would agree to play “a game or two” with the Sioux Falls Skyforce, the Wolves’ affiliate in the NBA Development League.

Flynn had surgery July 27 to repair a torn labrum in his left hip. He was projected to be ready to play by mid- to late November, but the time frame now appears to be early December.
