Tres Tinkle was spotted in late August stretching his leg with a resistance band, a workout meant to help rebuild the calf muscle strength he had lost from the past 4 months from recovery. The Oregon State forward was expected to return to court by mid-September, after one more appointment with foot specialist Donald Jones. Tinkle was wearing a walking boot and participating in physical therapy to rehabilitate and strengthen his leg muscles.

Those that suspect they have a broken foot shoot seek urgent medical attention where a medical professional could diagnose the severity.
