Is it still used to assess recovery and for example decide whether or not to put a previously injured professional soccer player on the field today or wait until next week ?
I’m not sure there’s a way to verify as the training staffs all keep the info to themselves, but from interviews it appears this may be one of the driving forces behind load management in the NBA.
I’ve heard Steph Curry and other Warriors players (my local market so that’s who is on the radio around here) say that they have no say in the load management and instead the trainers that monitor them decide when they have to take a day off. Steve Kerr mentioned it has to do with their biometrics and that it is beyond his understanding.
