Marvin Bagley III discusses his ‘scary’ injury

The Detroit Pistons are set to begin their 2022-23 season on Wednesday night at Little Caesars Arena when they host the Orlando Magic, but they’ll be missing one notable member of their lineup in Marvin Bagley III. As you may recall, Bagley suffered a sprained MCL and bone bruise in his right knee last week, and it will be keeping him out of action for at least the next three to four weeks.

Marvin Bagley III initially feared his injury was more serious

However, according to Bagley, he initially feared that the injury was of a far more serious nature. But he’s certainly thankful that isn’t the case.

“When I did it, all types of stuff was running through my mind,” Bagley said after Sunday’s practice. “It was something I couldn’t have really prevented. It happened so fast. That feeling, I never felt it before. Getting up and not being able to put pressure on it, it was a little scary for me. God had his hands on me; had His arms around me, so that’s all I can ask for.”

The injury occurred during an exhibition game last week when Bagley accidentally stepped on the foot of Oklahoma City Thunder forward Jalen William. But the good news is that he’s feeling better by the day.

“It just happened a few days ago so you’re still gonna have stiffness,” Bagley said. “Still gonna have little achy pains and things of that nature, so I’m just working through it every day. It feels better than it did yesterday and that’s how I approach every day, just keep making sure I get better. I just gotta stay locked in in the weight room and on the court and get back as soon as I can.”
