From the saddest press release you will read all day:
PORTLAND, Ore. — Trail Blazers center Joel Przybilla will undergo surgery on his right patella tendon in the next few days.
Przybilla re-ruptured his right patella tendon Saturday morning after slipping in the shower at his home in Milwaukee, Wis.
He returned to Portland today to undergo an MRI, which revealed the rupture.
Przybilla originally ruptured the tendon in a Dec. 22 game at Dallas. He underwent season-ending surgery on Dec. 24 and was in Milwaukee rehabilitating the injury.
No timetable is available for his return to the court.
Really? Even the injured Portland Trail Blazers are getting re-injured. One assumes Przybilla will not be in uniform anytime before the year 2011, although he'll probably stab himself in the eye with a toothbrush between now and then.
Be careful, Blazers. No one is safe.
