Andris Biedrins’ Season Likely Over

by March 09, 2010

The injuries in The Bay have been depressing for everyone, as Don Nelson tells the San Fransisco Chronicle: “Warriors coach Don Nelson couldn’t help but deviate from his usual light and humorous interview before Monday night’s 135-131 loss to New Orleans. The injury woes have gotten to the point that they’re simply not funny anymore. ‘If it wasn’t for the tears,’ Nelson said, ‘I guess it would be funny.’ That comment came following the Warriors’ announcement that Andris Biedrins will have surgery to repair a tear in an abdominal muscle today, a procedure that will likely cost the center the rest of the season. The Warriors have already lost Kelenna Azubuike (knee) and Brandan Wright (shoulder) for the season. Biedrins, who is expected to miss four to six weeks, joins a group – Raja Bell (wrist), Vladimir Radmanovic (Achilles tendon) and Anthony Randolph (ankle) – that might be holding on to lost hope for a return.”
