K-Mart and his left knee
The reports are that he has a partial tear of his left patella tendon. That makes Blake Griffin, Kelenna Azubuike, Greg Oden, Joel Pryzbilla and now Martin having injuries involving the patella this season.
Regardless of the route they decide to take recovery wise, he'll be out for some time. How does this affect the Nuggets?
They are in trouble, they NEED a free agent big man if they want to make a run in the playoffs.
i hate to see a player get injuried but this makes it easier for the lakers and dallas. for a partical tear you can start excercising after 3months. but thats with a regular guy with regular docters. not sure how it is for nba players with the best sports dr money can buy.you can either get surgery or let it heal on its own( i know alot about this injury because my last year player overseas i tore mine completely
i thought htey needed another big even before this injury. Birdman had better be ready to step up.
What big men are available that can step in and make an impact? I'm sure they'll be looking at players being bought out and in the D-League...
I was hoping that they could challenge lakers in playoffs.... Its going to be hard...
