8-10 weeks out minimum. They still going to keep up with the top tier teams now?

Well this sure opens the door for the Cavs player talked about the most on this board outside of Lebron and Mo Williams' inclusion in the Allstar game.... J.J. Hickson.

Whether or not thats actually good for the Cavs, which many say it could be, is yet to be seen.

How did it happen during the game? I had to read my stupid history book and decided to during the 3rd quarter when it happened (I think). Did he jump and land on it bad or something?

From a Cavs insider :

Quote:
We've gotten clearer images back, and it's worse. Original opinions were thought to be in the one month range. Now, Ben's injury looks worse in terms of time to heal. Looking at maybe three months ...his year is likely done....

Max said that we'd be dealing with SIGNIFICANT ATROPHY at that point, and rehabilitiation and strengthening would take a while to get the leg back to playing condition. His season is done now ...that's the impression I was given here about 10 minutes ago ..

The sprits on the team are said to be BAD, right now ...thought we'd escaped with a four week setback, now, we're in a big mess ...

Watching the game today, I noticed how far Wallace's athleticism has declined when I look back. In his hey day, he was all over the place, great quickness, block shots out of nowhere. Today, you look at him, and he can barely move, its like hes playing in quicksand.

Well he's 34, so that's not really surprising. He's not Big Ben anymore, just Ben.

tough loss for cleveland. i know ferry TRIED to turn wally's contract into something but now if this injury happened 2 weeks ago, he probably would have made SOME kind of move.

as a poster mentioned above... Hickson needs to step up.

It seems like nobody can stay healthy this year. Its really ruining the playoffs buildup

K. Garnett out
B. Wallace out (Z. Ilgauskas)
J. Nelson out
T. McGrady out (R. Artest, Yao Ming)
E. Brand out

A. Bynum out
M. Ginobili out (T. Parker) (T. Duncan)
G. Oden out
A. Stoudemire out, S. Nash out
(C. Boozer, D. Williams, A. Kirilenko)

I want to see full strength.
