A.J. Price Has Succesful Knee Surgery

After getting hurt in a charity hoops game, Price went under the knife and is expected to spend the next 4-6 months off his feet. The Indy Star reports: “Indiana Pacers guard A.J. Price had successful surgery today on his fractured left kneecap at Indiana Orthopedic Hospital, the team said. He is expected to be out four to six months, the Pacers said in news release today. Price, who had an impressive rookie season, injured his knee in a charity basketball game at a high school in New York on Saturday. He said he was making a move to the basket when the injury happened. The Pacers were so impressed with Price last season that they felt confident enough that he could be their backup point guard.”

    Josh Boone used to tell me how in college, Price was considered by many to be a better point guard than Marcus Williams was. Tough break for the kid, but this kid has been through tougher situations than what he’s going through now. He’ll work hard, and he’ll be back.

    Damn, Price just can’t catch a break, not the good kind anyways. Between the stolen laptops situation, the brain hemmorhage thing, not being able to play in his first UConn game until two years after what would’ve been his freshman season, the torn ACL in the ’08 tournament, and now this. Dude’s a survivor though, he’ll come back better than before yet again.

    if he misses games, who pays his contract, pacers, insurance or he does not get money because he’s injured outside nba games/practice?

    Sorry for the double post, I don’t see the original.

    I’ll try it one more time. If Price were doing things that were prohibited in his contract, then the Pacers can try to void the contract. Otherwise he still gets paid. Voiding a contract in the NBA is rare, though.

    Prohibited activities in a standard NBA contract usually include jet skiing, motor biking, etc. You know, high risk things, bunji jumping…
