Thanks to the miasma of injuries plaguing the League, and unless you want every other post today to detail who broke what, we’re forced to do an injury roundup:
Battie: Out for the season following rotator cuff surgery.
Howard: Josh’s wrist injury appears to be minor.
Kobe: Hurt his wrist against the Jazz on Tuesday night, but it doesn’t appear to be anything serious.
Iverson: Teammate drove a knee into his thigh during practice. Ouch.
Durant: Might sit out the season opener due to an ankle sprain.
Kidd: Finally, some good news. Old man Kidd should be ready to go on Opening Night, and might even suit up for a preseason game or two.
