Patty Mills Could be Made of Glass

… or maybe it’s porcelain. Only today’s X-Ray results can confirm: “Portland Trail Blazers rookie guard Patrick Mills fractured the fifth metatarsal in his right foot during Thursday evening’s NBA Summer League practice session. X-rays taken Thursday night revealed the fracture. Mills will see a specialist today, at which point a timetable for his return will be determined.”

    Get well soon! Can’t wait to see you play!

    pinky toes break. then they get better with no long term problems. anyone could have had the same injury smashing their foot in an end table. not a big deal.

    Well, it’s a big deal when you’re barely drafted trying to get a contract.

    Metatarsal = not a pinky toe. It’s the bone that runs from the ankle to the toe joint. It’s not that rad that he’s done this, he’ll barely be able to walk. Which totally sucks.

    Was he drinking some of Oden’s injury juice?

    This might even hurt his Euro chances. Not good.

    oh well there goes his portland contract! get well soon!

    Blazers probably would have waived him anyway. The roster is full, no room for second round picks. (No disrespect) Roy wont be free agent until the end of next season, but wants to sign big 5 year contract now. Wish they would give it to him, Paul Allen would rather “wait and see”.

    The kind of crap you wouldn’t want for anyone. Hang in there, Patty.

    Aboriginal 2nd round picks are cursed (no racism intended).
    Jawai and his heart condition, now Mills and his foot. This is terrible.

    Jawai is a Torres Straight Islander, not Aboriginal, Hursty.
    “Indigenous Australians” is what you meant to say there.
    Which is still not very cool.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Yeh Indigenous Australians.
    Oh, and I wasn’t trying to be offensive either (I’m trying to decipher your last sentence).
