Martell Webster Out: 4-6 Weeks

by October 26, 2010

Martell underwent the procedure he was hoping to avoid, and now won’t be playing for a while. The Star Tribune reports: “Martell Webster on Monday morning underwent a surgical prodecure to correct a back disc that has been causing him pain and Wes Johnson continues to nurse a hamstring injury that has bothered him since July. The Wolves didn’t set a timetable for Webster’s return, but the microdiscectomy operation he underwent typically requires four to six weeks recovery, which likely is an ambitious timeframe for him to return to full health and full speed on the court. Kurt Rambis lamented the development because Webster had done ‘such a great job’ in preseason games coming off the bench, a job Rambis prefers for Webster because he likes the ‘energy and production’ Webster provides at shooting guard and small forward. ‘We have our team, we just move forward with the guys that we have,’ Rambis said. ‘It’s unfortunate, because [Webster] was playing so well.'”
