Plans for Brand to undergo surgery to repair the injury are underway, the details of which will be made available by the team as soon as they are finalized.

That's just brutal. Brand is one of those good guys and never gets enough credit.

Clippers will now be fighting to be in the bottom 10 of the NBA... I feel bad for 'em, they might as well trade maggs for any good prospect, they don't have to hit a grand slam for a trade, just get a couple of good players, starting working them in...

Sucks for Brand. He's a good character dude.

As for the effect it will have on the Clippers team and record, good. I hate them, always have. I can't wait for the day "Bingo" is out of Staples center.

There are rumors about a deal surrounding Maggette to the Bucks for Yi. Of course, that isn't the whole trade, but just the principles.

This is good for Al Thornton, though. He'll get play at both forward spots now.

A ruptured achilles tendon is one of the worst injuries a basketball player can sustain. Outside of mabye a microfracture, and just the tearing everything ligament wise type Shaun Livingston. This was supposed to be his year where he'd ball out, and then opt out of his contract pursue his dream of playing for the Heat for the MLE. (jk).

Yeah and Al Thornton should see plently of time now...He is a monster....He'll be third in ROY votes behind Durant and Oden, book it.
