Marreese Speights out with MCL tear - 8 Weeks Out

PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia 76ers forward Marreese Speights will miss six to eight weeks with a left knee injury.

Speights was injured in the fourth quarter of a 94-88 loss at Chicago on Saturday night. An MRI on Sunday revealed he has a partial tear of the medial collateral ligament in his left knee.

Speights has averaged 13 points and 6.4 rebounds in the first 10 games. He averaged 7.7 points and 3.7 rebounds as a rookie last year.

Well this is a shame because I was hearing so much good about this guy and how he is better than Brand on that team. Out 2 months after starting off the season well is a big hit. Well, Brand is going to get more minutes by default so he can stop complaining and start producing.

Someone check on Posterize, make sure he hasn't harmed himself.



Seriously though, unfortunate news. Always sucks to see guys get hurt. Azubuike went down yesterday too.

There goes his shot at MIP. Congrats Ariza.

Sad news. He was my pick for MIP and I really hoped his minutes would go up as the season went on, because he was playing great. Hope he bounces back well.

Perfect opportunity to play Brand more minutes and hopefully raise his stock.

This is the bright side of the situation. Hopefully Brand can put together a good few months of ball and show he is not done yet. He may have the most immovable contract int he league

He's an off-Brand player with a Brand-name contract.
