Default Chris Webber Retires

Time is apparently up on Chris Webber's basketball career.

Sources close to Webber told ESPN.com on Tuesday that the 35-year-old has decided to retire from the game, ending his comeback with the Golden State Warriors after more problems with a surgically repaired left knee that has plagued him for the past half-decade.

Webber is expected to formally announce his plans Wednesday, sources said, less than two months after rejoining the franchise that unleashed him on the NBA after Webber was selected out of Michigan with the top overall pick in the 1993 draft.

Sources said that Webber, unable to play since March 2 because of the latest complications with the knee, decided in the past week to end his pro career after 15 seasons, having struggled with the knee for the last five of those seasons since a serious tear in the 2003 playoffs that required microfracture surgery.
