Portland Trail Blazers: Another One Bites the Dust
This is getting ridiculous. Injuries have taken Greg Oden, Rudy Fernandez, Travis Outlaw, and now Joel Pryzbilla. Pryzbilla suffered a ruptured patella tendon last night as Portland beat Dallas.It’s one thing to lose your starting Center, but his backup as well. Portland will likely be in the market for a big man as who knows how much Juwan Howard has left in the tank at 36.
One option could be Joe Smith of the Hawks once his thumb heals. He’s used to being dealt. Perhaps they could score Marcin Gortat from Orlando. DeSagana Diop isn’t getting any run in Charlotte. The Timberwolves are always open for a deal, and perhaps Brian Cardinal could be available.
