Brewer Era in Memphis Off to Rough Start

by February 22, 2010

The new guy in town had a less than encouraging debut: “Acquired Thursday in a trade with the Utah Jazz, the former Arkansas Razorbacks star played just 12 minutes in a Grizzlies uniform before collapsing on the court and grimacing in pain as he held his right leg. Brewer had his condition confirmed Saturday morning after a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam. The Grizzlies said Brewer would be out indefinitely and an official timetable for his return will be set in a week. Brewer did not travel with the team to New Jersey where the Griz will face the Nets this evening. He needed crutches upon leaving FedExForum Friday night. But Brewer walked without crutches Saturday morning.”
