Martell Webster Hoping to Avoid Back Surgery

by October 25, 2010

Doctors will let Webster know of his fate today, as he understandably doesn’t want to go under the knife. From the Star Tribune: “Martell Webster’s going back to the doctor today for a second opinion that could possibly involved surgery on a back injury that he initially termed muscle spasms. ‘It’s definitely not long term,’ Webster said before saying surgery will be a topic discussed at the doctor’s. ‘I’m waiting and keeping my fingers crossed. Maybe not, ‘ he said, meaning surgery might not be required. ‘We’re going to take it one step at a time. I’m not going to come back until I’m fully ready because I don’t want to make the problem chronic.’ Both Webster and Kurt Rambis said there’s no way he plays Wednesday.”
