Outlaw Surgery Successful - Out 3-5 Months

Whatever your view is on Travis Outlaw, it should be pushed aside right now.  Losing ANY player for 3-5 months hurts ANY team.  We're only 12 games deep and already as thin as Lindsey Lohan's hair line.  Possibly time for Kevin Pritchard to start looking at trade possibilities?  The problem is, who can he trade?

And if you ever wondered what a "5th metatarsal fracture" looks like, we've got you covered.

PORTLAND, Ore. – Trail Blazers forward Travis Outlaw underwent successful surgery to repair a stress fracture of the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot, the Portland Trail Blazers announced today. He is expected to be sidelined for three to five months.

In 11 games this season, Outlaw averaged 9.9 points (37.6% FG, 38.7% 3-PT, 87.5% FT), 3.5 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 21.0 minutes. He scored in double figures four times and led Portland’s bench in scoring on five occasions.

Dr. Jay Crary performed the surgery at Southwest Washington Regional Surgery Center in Vancouver, Wash

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.
