Jason Quick of The Oregonian reports:

Second-year center Jeff Pendergraph left Thursday’s exhibition game at Utah with a right knee injury that appears to be serious.

Pendergraph crumpled to the court holding his right knee after Jazz center Kyrylo Fesenko drove and scored on him with 10:48 left in the second quarter. Blazers players immediately signaled for athletic trainer Jay Jensen. Pendergraph was unable to put pressure on the knee as he was positioned into a wheelchair on the court. He was wheeled off with his right knee extended and Jensen holding his foot.

InsideHoops.com editor says: The Blazers should just get rid of their entire roster, then sign 15 centers. And then have a contest: Player who remains healthy the longest wins a pony.
