Stewart is Out
UltimateMotorCycling.com has just finished a call with James Stewart’s team and has confirmed, unfortunately, that Stewart was actually injured worse than had been originally diagnosed after two accidents that occurred during round 2 of the 2010 Supercross season in Phoenix. What the original x-rays missed, an MRI scan revealed yesterday: Stewart has a broken bone in his hand and immediate surgery was recommended.
Team San Manuel Yamaha’s James Stewart underwent surgery this afternoon, to repair a broken scaphoid in his right wrist. Following Round 3 of the 2010 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, in Anaheim, CA, Stewart continued to experience severe pain in the wrist.
Although previous x-rays had not indicated there was a break, an MRI performed yesterday and reviewed by medical experts today, revealed the bone was broken. Surgery was performed immediately by orthopedic surgeon Dr. Arthur Ting, of Fremont, CA and was completed without incidence.
