Default Wolves Injuries

New Wolves center Jason Collins is expected to miss eight weeks after undergoing surgery on a triceps tendon in his elbow on Monday in California.

He was injured in what a team spokesman called a “freak” accident that occured when his golf cart skidded on wet ground and tipped over.
If he’s sidelined for exactly eight weeks, Collins, acquired from Memphis in the draft-night Love-for-O.J. Mayo deal, would miss all of training camp and the regular season’s first week.
Meanwhile, Craig Smith is supposed to be healthy enough to begin practicing with teammates starting on Monday. He underwent knee surgery Aug. 1 after injuring his knee in the one Las Vegas Summer League game he played after signing a new two-year, $4.8 million deal.

New forward Rodney Carney still is nursing a hamstring injury that caused him to miss the Vegas summer league games after the Wolves acquired him from Philadelphia.

Love says he is fully healed from a sore Achilles tendon that caused him to miss the Wolves’ final Las Vegas Summer League game in July and also prevented him from practicing with the U.S. Olympic team after he was one of 12 young NBA players selected for the opportunity.

This hurts. I mean, it would be great to start the training camp with all of the players together on the floor, for team chemistry reasons, but if Collins is hurt, we just gotta move on.

Jason Collins is sounding like a fool. Drunk golf cart driving isn't what I expected from him. Damn, I really wanted him to be able to play. He's a nice big body, something we're not use to in Minnesota. If only Eddie Griffin was still here. Man, I miss what he brought to the table.
