Darrell Arthur Might Be Out Entire Season

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.”

    Tough break for the Grizzlies and Arthur. Hopefully we don’t see a ton of the Achilles’ problems like we saw in the post-NFL Lockout.

    Josh McRoberts to the Grizzlies for OJ Mayo. Do it lakers!!! We need a back up 2 and mayo could do that and play some point. I wouldn’t be mad at a Mayo, Kobe, Barnes lineup or a Blake, Mayo, Kobe lineup

    Any time you have an injury to one side of your leg, your other leg is now severely at risk of injuring itself since it experiences an imbalance and takes more of the load (especially at the ankle area). That’s why it’s really important to rehab BOTH legs – not just the injured one.
