Azubuike’s knee has a torn patellar tendon, which means he will require season-ending surgery. And because this team wasn’t snake bitten enough, C.J. watson has swine flu: “The Warriors learned Monday that swingman Kelenna Azubuike is out for the season and that guard C.J. Watson tested positive for swine flu. According to a team source, an MRI on Monday showed the injury Azubuike sustained Saturday at Milwaukee will require surgery, which means the patellar tendon was torn in his left knee. The surgery will be scheduled this week. Recovery time for this type of surgery usually is five to six months. Watson is being treated according to the NBA’s mandated precautionary measures. He will not be with the team for the remainder of the road trip, which concludes Wednesday in Boston.”
