Portland Trailblazers’ Elliot Williams Tore Left Achilles Tendon

by September 12, 2012

Tough news out of Portland for shooting guard Elliot Williams, who tore his left Achilles Tendon. It’s not known yet just how much time Williams will miss following surgery. Per the Oregonian: “The Trail Blazers are not scheduled to open training camp for another three weeks, but they’ve already suffered a significant injury. Shooting guard Elliot Williams tore his left Achilles tendon during a voluntary workout Tuesday at the team’s practice facility in Tualatin and will require surgery. It’s unclear how much time Williams will miss, but the hard-luck third-year guard likely faces an extended rehabilitation that could last several months. The Blazers will set a time line for his return after he undergoes surgery, which has not yet been scheduled.”
