Kelenna Azubuike seriously injures his left knee
 
Quote:

Warriors swingman Kelenna Azubuike suffered what the team called a “left patella tendon injury.”

Azubuike drove the lane with just over nine minutes left and wound up falling on his back hard. He tried to jump towards the basket but his knee gave out. He immediately reached for his knee and stared at it in shock. From the courtside media view, it looked like his knee cap was off to the side (which suggests a dislocated knee cap).

Azubuike had to be wheel-barreled off the court, his hand shielding his face. The somber of his teammates confirmed the severity of the injury. Azubuike did not go to the hospital. He had his knee imaged at the Bradley Center. It has not been determined how long how long he will be out.

Quick research online shows that a dislocated patella takes about 3 to 5 months to heal. If Azubuike ruptured his patellar tendon, which is the ligament that connects the quadriceps to the shin, he’ll need surgery to repair it. According to some related Web sites, his knee would be casted for six weeks followed by weeks of rehab.

That's a shame. You really hate to hear about guys hurting their knees bad. I have always liked his game. Nothing spectacular, but overall solid. Hope for the best

One of my favorite players, I was hoping the Bulls would send Tyrus off in exchange for him. I hope he gets well soon, he is a terrific young player.

i saw the injury on replayed highlights. a fall like that during mid-air jump does not look good at all. hope he recovers well.

Yeah, saw this happen live. Did not look good. You hate to see players go down like that. I've never seen someone carted off like that in a long time.

Wish him all the best.

I'm assuming Anthony Morrow will get a ton of minutes from now on. How do you think he will perform?

Who knows with Nellie... This guy has 6'3 Acie Law as the back up SF (As per Rotoworld - Oct 25th). You would think Jackson, Maggette, and Morrow would get the bulk of the minutes.

This is bad for hte Warriors. Hope he gets well soon, this injury has more of an effect than people in general think.
