Earlier today top-level Melee player Juan "Hungrybox" Dibiedma announced on Twitter that he fractured his finger playing dodgeball. His doctor, he said, told him that it would be healed 'in a few weeks' - whether or not it will be fully healed by Genesis 4 is unknown. Genesis 4 is one of the most anticipated tournaments to start off the new year, and missing it - especially if you're a top player like Hbox - could mean starting off the year rocky.
However, Juan has a possible solution. If Smashbox, the Hitbox game-stick designed specifically for Melee, is legal for G4, he could theoretically remap his controls so that there is less strain on his broken finger. Only time will tell whether this idea is practical or not.
