"My only injury is curable with surgery. I'm seven inches away from a wrist bone to another, and to throw it hurts a lot. It impossible to make the correct movement on every pitch," said the player, who said recioso be with the procedure.

"To get 100% I have to do surgery, but I'm afraid because I have to put a pin in the wrist. I do not know how it goes, but everything will be decided after the NBA strike," said Leandro

Terra = Earth in portuguese

I assume he means he'll have the surgery and he won't be able to know how it effects his game until after the lockout and he can play in a real NBA game.

Yeah, probably. I get a kick out of these translations.

Why is he pussyfooting around? If he needs surgery, he should get it already! He should have gotten it as soon as his season ended!!

Yeah - I wouldn't be surprised if he's waiting for the strike to end before deciding on it. At the end of the season they said he wasn't going to require surgery. It sounds like it might not be necessary, but that he might find it the best option anyway, depending on how his game is effected.

I don't even think he will be a Raptor next season, so the news is kind of irrelevant.

True, but do you want to trade for a guy that's recovering from surgery or just out of surgery.

It definitely hurts his value, even with it being expiring (assuming there is no strike).

He's not going anywhere until the trade deadline next season.

curious to see what happens with Barbosa, i think he will be a big time free agent, his speed alone and game changing ability of hte bench makes him a huge target

I have no idea what this means
Quote:
I'm seven inches away from a wrist bone to another
Quote:
Eu tenho sete milímetros de distância de um osso ao outro no pulso
clearly it says millimeters in the text, wristbones too close to one another?

Altho he should've gotten the surgery in the winter like Kleiza he chose to play through it and was one of our best players out there.
If I was BC and I had a contract he would've given Leandro a 4 year extension already.
