Default Morrison likely out for season

Knee injury puts Morrison's season in jeopardy
Oct. 21, 2007
CBSSports.com wire reports

LOS ANGELES -- Charlotte Bobcats reserve forward Adam Morrison is likely done for the season after an MRI exam on Sunday revealed a torn ligament in his left knee.

The injury occurred with about 5 minutes left in the third quarter of Saturday night's 113-93 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. Morrison was attempting to defend Luke Walton on a drive to the basket and crumpled to the floor in severe pain while clutching his left knee.

"Our medical staff has had a chance to review the MRI, and they're saying right now they believe there is some sort of tear," coach Sam Vincent said Sunday, about an hour before the Bobcats took on Phoenix in the second day of the annual Staples Center shootout.

"Until they get in there and do whatever they do, who knows? But they are saying there's a good chance he will be out for the year. So I'm not counting on him playing," Vincent added.

A lot of severe knee injuries lately. Is it by any chance, due to too much weight lifting?

Collapsed under the weight of his own moustache.

In all serious though, it does suck to see any guy go down like this. On the plus side it'll mean more minutes for Jared Dudley/Hermann etc.

that really blows. I feel bad for him. Huge setback early in his career.
His lateral movement was bad enuf, but now...

Now that Morrison's hurt, the Bobcats should have a great year. This is the best thing that could have happened to them.
