Jason Day has been one of the biggest question marks in the field over the last few weeks.

He's one of the favorites at 14-1 but has had a lot of injury questions with a bum thumb that he said recently he's taping up and received a cortisone shot for.

Day, who had to pull out of the 2012 Masters with an ankle injury, said he's not worried about how the injury will affect him.

"I've played 36 holes here over the last four days and the hand's coming up nicely," he said. "I'm really looking forward to a nice, solid start."

Somebody on the other hand (no pun intended) is concerned:

That's a monster red flag considering his status as the favorite and his top five finishes in two of the last three Masters tournaments.

I guess I'd take the under but, man, I'm worried.
