SPORTSCARE COMEBACK ATHLETE OF THE MONTH — On a monthly basis, SportsCare Physical Therapy — the official therapy provider for the National Basketball Association’s Brooklyn Nets — acknowledges an extraordinary athlete who has recovered from injury and returned to their sport. For February 2014, SportsCare recognizes Mountain Lakes, NJ’s Cole Malnoti, a student at Briarcliff Middle School.
