SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) Przemek Karnowski woke up every morning unable to lift his upper body off the bed, so he would slowly rock back and forth until he reached the edge.
Once there, he would lower to the floor and crawl to his crutch, using it and the doorknob to raise his massive frame off the carpet.
This was the Gonzaga center's life in late 2015. The concern then was not whether Karnowski would play basketball again. Living a normal life again was the goal.
