Default Marcus Camby to have knee surgery, I shit you not.

This is the song that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friends...

Quote:
PORTLAND -- Portland Trail Blazers center Marcus Camby will undergo arthroscopic surgery later this week to repair a partial medial meniscus tear in his left knee, it was announced today by General Manager Rich Cho.

“The MRI taken earlier today did not show anything significant,” said Cho. “However, a more thorough review tonight from our team physician did reveal a partial tear.”

The exact date for Camby’s arthroscopy has yet to be determined. A timeline for his return will be set following surgery.

In 39 games (all starts) this season, Camby has averaged 5.9 points, 11.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.87 blocks in 28.7 minutes. He ranks fifth in the NBA in rebounds and 10th in blocked shots per game.

Camby is the only player in the Western Conference averaging at least 11.0 rebounds and 1.50 blocks. He has grabbed at least 10 boards in 26 games and led the team in rebounding a team-high 28 times this season.

Why do the Blazers have such bad karma?

Hasn't there been talk about checking out their trainers and medical staff because this has happened way too much?

Camby, Przybilla, Roy and Oden all had significant injury concerns and history before going to Portland. It's quite clear it's a problem with management. The medical staff can only do so much with players with pre-existing injuries.

Honestly, this isn't even surprising. Marcus Camby is the most injury prone player I've ever seen. This guy gets hurt every 3 or 4 games.

Just watching last night before he even got hurt, I was thinking, "Man Camby is about due to have a injury that keeps him out a couple games".

What do you know, it happened. Camby is very injury prone, the Blazers picked a ton of these kind of players.

We got the character thing down, now we need to make sure the players we sign have good character and health.
