Hasheem Thabeet’s Jaw is Broken

The rook got a taste of the rigors of NBA life last night. Namely, his teammate Zach Randolph’s rock-like head: “Rookie center Hasheem Thabeet suffered a ridgeline fracture in his mandible — a bone in his lower jaw — when he appeared to collide with Zach Randolph’s head going for a rebound late in the first quarter. Play was stopped with 57.4 seconds remaining as Thabeet rolled around near the basket in obvious pain. He will not make the trip to Houston for the team’s game against the Rockets tonight, but his status will be day-to-day after that.”

    It’s really his game that needs fixing. Kidding! (only slghtly). Get well soon.

    Given how tall Hasheem is, and what a huge impact he has had on the league this far, i guess the point of this story is that Zach Randolph still has some hops in those legs.

    I expected Randolph to break someone’s jaw while in Memphis, I just thought it would’ve been at some ribs joint at 3 in the morning
