And just when we're about to step out the door and head off on X-mas adventures, we get another major injury to another key player on this Portland Trail Blazers roster. Przybilla went up for a rebound late in the 1st quarter and came down awkwardly on his right knee. He immediately fell to the floor in agony, pounding his fists in obvious anger and frustrations. Teammates helped him off the court and into the locker room where we now await what we can all expect to be dreadful news.
I don't even know what to say anymore...
As we have details, we'll update this post.
Update 1: Video footage of the injury.
Update 2: News now that Joel has a ruptured patella tendon and a dislocated patella.
I'm no doctor, but this injury appears to be worse than Oden's and will likely mean his season is over. Wow.
Update 3: Photos now coming out of Joel's knee.
