Nicolas Batum Out With a Concussion

Portland Trail Blazers forward Nicolas Batum suffered a concussion after taking a nasty spill during a team practice on Tuesday. Batum will sit out tonight’s preseason game against the Phoenix Suns. Per the Columbian: “Batum left practice early after colliding into the stanchion underneath one of the baskets at the Trail Blazers practice facility. He went up for a dunk and WIll Barton contested the shot and that resulted in the fall. Barton also suffered a concussion last week but is back, playing in Fan Fest and the first preseason game on Monday. Batum’s injury is the latest in a slew of injuries for the Trail Blazers. The most serious is rookie guard CJ McCollum’s broken foot which has him out indefinitely. LaMarcus Aldridge dealt with a strained right quad that kept him out of practices and the Trail Blazers first preseason game. Mo Williams has been dealing with a sprained right ankle. Dorell Wright dislocated his right middle finger but sat out of Monday’s game for resting purposes, per head coach Terry Stotts. Earl Watson has been dealing with a left calf contusion that’s kept him out.”

    Wow… Did they just name half the players on the team as injured? Looks like the injury bug didn’t leave with Oden and Roy…

    I’m actually curious though, is this a product of bad luck or because they have a bad medical team?

    I just think yeah you can have bad luck but no team can have that much bad luck with injuries not just from the same players but from several players over several seasons.
