Travis Outlaw Breaks Foot - Out Indefinitely

Yep, another blow to an already injury plagued Trail Blazers team.  First Nicolas Batum and now Travis Outlaw.  Early x-rays show that he fractured the 5th metatarsal bone in his left foot (I'm pretty sure it was his right?) which just so happens to be the same bone that sidelined Martell Webster for the entire 2008-09 season.

If you want to read up on treatment options for Outlaw, check out this site which gives you a complete breakdown of every scenario.   Below is a picture of a 5th metatarsal fracture...

Now, as many of you know, I've never been the biggest Travis Outlaw supporter, but with a freak injury during a guy's contract year, I'm not about to throw a party.  Do I think he will be missed?  Obviously he will, as a veteran who has played during some pretty big moments in some pretty big games and also as a close friend to Roy.  Do I think this team's run will come to a screeching halt now?  Not likely.  We'll now see major upgrades in minutes for Martell and Rudy which I'll take any day over Travis.  Juwan Howard, you could argue, is not necessarily a downgrade either.

Like I said though, this isn't a time for all of the Outlaw haters to rejoice, but it is a time when both haters and lovers will find out if he really is a contributing factor to this team's success.

Oh, and watch out for Antonio Harvey...we all know that he and Outlaw are southern pals and it now appears that his Trout-goggles are clouding his tweets.

I'm not even going to respond to 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.
