Marty Webster - See Ya Next Year

We will still have plenty of chances to read about Martell Webster's antics via Jason Quick, but unfortunately we won't be seeing any of his antics on the court throughout the rest of the year.  The Blazers released a statement yesterday confirming what many had already predicted.
Webster underwent surgery on Oct. 9 to repair a stress fracture in his left foot. After being sidelined nearly two months, Webster returned to the court on Dec. 7 for Portland's game at Toronto, but re-aggravated the injury.

"This was not an easy decision to make knowing just how hard Martell has worked to get back on the court this season," said Pritchard. "The X-rays show significant progress, but the bone has not completely healed. We feel strongly that an extended period of rest will ensure a full recovery and allow Martell to be ready for fall training camp."

A fourth-year Trail Blazer, Webster initially suffered the injury in an Oct. 7 preseason game vs. Sacramento.

"Throughout the course of the rehab I worked my tail off to get back out there and to come up short is disappointing," said Webster. "Now I just have to refocus my energy on getting better, getting stronger, and being ready for the start of next season."
It would have been nice to see how his game had progressed from last year to this year, but this late in the season, tossing Marty in might have been the wrong kind of shake up.  The rotation seems to be gelling just at the right moment...

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
