It does suck for the young man, though. Not getting to go to the Bahamas would ruin anyone's day.

As for Wiseman not playing, I'd rather him not play in meaningless exhibition games and risk getting hurt. These games don't matter nearly as much as the ones starting in November. Just keep hitting the weights and enjoy the beach.

Agreed

I use AMEX and I've never had any trouble getting to or from the Bahama's.

I assume you are a US citizen, precious is Nigerian. Lead time on visas for non-EU or US citizens can be absurd.

From experience, we routinely have to give 6-weeks notice to bring chinese citizens over for work meetings and there is confirmation required for time/dates/locations at time of filing

*whoosh*

OP was talking about Visa vs American Express.

I guess it is possible that the school couldn't help with his Visa until he actually enrolled and began attending classes and he hasn't been enrolled very long.

That is the only excuse I can see for them missing this by a few days.

Lol... i guess so, assumed he meant AMEX travel agency (biggest travel agency in US for business travelers). Not a very funny joke.

Jason Munz, CA beat writer for Tigers and is down there, says he feels like Precious will eventually make it down to the Bahamas.

I spoke to a co-worker from Nigeria today, and he dismissed almost all of the potential reasons discussed in this thread.

Making your scenario the most plausible of all.

So weird that both our big men from East ended up with shoulder issues.

Well worth the risk then. All of our games this week are must wins. I would blast Wiseman's shoulder with cortisone and ride him as much as possible.
