Sad news out of Memphis, as the Commercial Appeal is reporting that Grizzlies’ big man Darell Arthur might have torn his right Achilles, and may have to miss the entire ’11-12 season as a result. Some details: “Grizzlies forward Darrell Arthur left practice this morning with a serious Achilles injury and the fear is that he might be lost for the entire 2011-12 season, according to sources with knowledge of situation. An early diagnosis by the team’s medical staff indicated that Arthur might have suffered a torn right Achilles. The 6-9 reserve had just returned to practice after missing time with a sore left Achilles. The Griz were already thin at the power forward and center positions. This is the second time a serious injury will curtail Arthur’s career. He missed four months during the 2009-10 season because of surgery to repair a partially torn right pectoralis muscle.”
