Make it Official: Batum Undergoes Shoulder Surgery

First via Twitter from the team:
@BlazerFlack: Nic Batum underwent successful surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He is expected to be sidelined for up to 5 months.
And then via press release:
BATUM UNDERGOES SHOULDER SURGERY

PORTLAND, Ore. – Trail Blazers forward Nicolas Batum underwent successful surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder, the Portland Trail Blazers announced today. 

Dr. Neal ElAttrache performed the surgery at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles.

Batum is expected to be sidelined for up to five months.
I'm glad that the surgery is over, but it also sets in the realization that we'll be witnessing Carmelo-esque performances like last night's for the next 5 months.  Swallow that.

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.
