It didn't look real bad just that he put his hand out to try and brace himself and maybe jammed his wrist or something. He was moving it around so it's not likely to be broke but it could hamper his swing for a while if they don't let him rest it for a day or so.

Being that this is the Chicago Cubs we're talking about....I would imagine it's broken and they know it. They are trying to keep ticket sales up for the next couple of weeks before they release the info that their star player is out indefinitely. It's scary how many times we've seen the same thing from the Cubs in the past few years.

After watching that highlight I’d say it’s broken or severely sprained. With the way he instantly reacted and how he was holding his wrist it sure looked painful, and a simple sprain wouldn’t do that, you’d think. “Inconclusive” on an x-ray, with the kind of doctors and $$$ at their disposal, makes me think fracture or at the very least severe sprain. I don’t know how you can go to experts in the field of sports medicine, take an x-ray and have “inconclusive” results. I’m no doctor, sure, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

And yes, we’ve seen disinformation from the Cubs over and over and over. They are the worst for pulling the wool over fans’ eyes, to put it mildly.

I have no idea why but I read this afternoon while Googling around that more than 60% of wrist x-rays are inconclusive and require a follow up MRI.

There are a LOT of bones in that little area, so I can see how it would be difficult, but for God's sake - these people go through almost a decade of school for this stuff!

That's almost as bad of a percentage as weathermen! :-o

Lee out up to ten weeks. Just heard on espn radio 1000 bruce levine. As a Sox fan hate to see this happen to a guy like Lee. If Pauly wasn't on the team I would love to have D. Lee.

Yeah, just heard this as well. Comcast Sports is reporting (unconfirmed as of right now) 8-10 weeks on Lee, which would take us to just about the ASB........ Super!! I also have Rentaria and Marcus Giles both of whom could be DL bound. And speaking of being sunk, how bout them Cubbies? Two best starting pitchers on on the DL and now your slumping third baseman gets to start pressing, as he begins to feel the pressure to be both Aramis Ramirez AND Derrek Lee. I'm sure everything will be fine...............

According to the Tribune:

Lee could be out 2-3 months

By Paul Sullivan
Tribune staff reporter

Cubs first baseman Derrek Lee suffered two broken bones in his right wrist during Wednesday's collision with Rafael Furcal and is expected to be in a cast for up to six weeks.

Lee could miss the next two-three months with the injury, which came on a freak play during the seventh inning of Wednesday's 5-4 win in Los Angeles.

He suffered a fracture of the distal radial bone and the distal ulna bones while trying to brace himself from Furcal, who was charging towards the bag while beating out a bunt.

Lee flew to Chicago Thursday morning and was examined by Cubs team physicians. He'll be placed on the 15-day disabled list on Friday, when the Cubs announce a minor-league call-up to take his roster spot.
