Default Raja Bell opts for surgery instead of playing for GS

San Francisco Chronicle reports:

Newly-acquired Raja Bell told The Chronicle on Tuesday that he will have wrist surgery, a decision that adds to the Warriors' injury woes and could cost the guard the rest of the season.

Bell, who was picked up from Charlotte in the Stephen Jackson trade Monday, will go back east for surgery to repair a partially torn ligament in his left wrist. He'll miss four or five weeks if the wrist is in decent shape and probably the rest of the season if screws are needed for the repair.

"I'm going into it, assuming it will be a big surgery," Bell said. "If I wake up and it's not, it's icing on the cake. I'm prepared for the worst-case scenario, and I'll go from there.

Bell could join Kelenna Azubuike (knee) and Brandan Wright (shoulder), who have been lost for the season. Coach Don Nelson said Ronny Turiaf (knee) is further away from playing than Andris Biedrins (back/groin), who won't be re-evaluated until Monday.


will the pain never end for Warriors fans?
