What is the status of Shaqs February Achilles injury?

Ok what I am wondering is the following:

Shaq suffered a Achilles injury (which caused inflammation) back in early February .

He returned from that injury 2 months later and made a comeback attempt in early April.

In the same game,  Shaq suffered what team Physician Dr McKeon has been quoted as saying was a:

" triceps surae injury which has created pain around his right calf and Achilles tendon that has been too painful for him to play through"

Which in simple terms means (injury to 2  calf related muscles) which has kept Shaq out of the line up to date.

Now though this current triceps surae injury is creating pain around Shaqs Achilles tendon ......

What I am curious about is if Shaqs February Achilles injury felt better for him to attempt a comeback at the beginning of April and his Achilles has now gotten extra rest and healing time with Shaq out with his triceps surae injury, does that mean his February Achilles injury has possibly healed to a even better extent or possibly even fully healed .... which would be very good news?

It would be nice if Dr McKeon could address this matter and tell us if  Shaqs old February Achilles injury is better now or maybe has fully healed with all this extra rest Shaq has gotten.

Because if it has then at least it would be one less injury to worry about pertaing to Shaq and all we would then have to worry about then is waiting for his (I assume less severe) triceps surae injury to heal.

Any body have any thoughts on the matter?
