Why would I send him to the physio (more time out) or the specialist (same time as doctor' but with added cost) when I can send him to the doctor? Ignore play through injury of course, since that's completely different.

The specialist is generally better for preventing the injury becoming a recurring problem
If you read the news item above it, a Specialist will reduce the chances of the injury recurring.
I can’t see how a broken wrist would become reoccurring. Not like a torn hamstring, for example.
It can not heal properly and become a reoccurring problem (arthritis, functional problem) . The specialist will operate to put everything on the right place. A doctor can only handle it in a Conservative manner (no op). Source : I'm physio.
But you're right. It's confusing. Maybe specialist is more 7 weeks and doctor 8... would be interesting to test. I always play as a quite big team so I always take the specialist option.
Well this time I chose play through injury because even though the player is not that important, my leading striker is already injured for a few more weeks so I can’t afford to lose another one.
An injury needs time to recover, regardless of who treats you.
