It seems his finger had been bent back during his bout with Shodai (on Day 8) of the last tournament (in Nagoya)," his stablemaster Miyagino told reporters Monday.

"He had been worried about (an injury to his right little finger). He couldn't use his hand at all (on Sunday). I think he just wanted to fight."

That bout was nearly 2 months ago, and if he re-injured it yesterday I can understand him withdrawing from this tournament.

However, the way this article is written is suggesting that he injured it back then and THAT is the reason he is withdrawing from this tournament.
