Elias is on his way out of Torino. The good news is he’ll have a solid 10 days to let the ribs heal up before the knock’em sock’em Eastern Conference schedule resumes; the bad news is that he went through a lot of travel and personal wear and tear to play in one Olympic game.
So much for filling up on home-style Italian cooking. Time to come back to that local Italian place where he’s frequently spotted. It’s widely rumored that Elias is a locker room prankster, but this isn’t the kind of ribbing he should get in return.
