Exclamation Barbosa needs surgery



Ouch.
Quote:
Raptors guard Leandro Barbosa may not be able to contribute as much as the team had hoped for in the 2010-11 season.

Barbosa told the Globe and Mail that he will have surgery on his right wrist at some point in the future, depending on how long he can play through the discomfort.

The shooting guard, acquired from the Phoenix Suns in the trade that sent Hedo Turkoglu south, will be in the lineup Wednesday night for the Raptors season opener, but the question is how effective he will be, and how long he will be able to delay surgery.


"It's not 100 per-cent, but I'm going to play and be there with my teammates and try to do my best," Barbosa told the Globe and Mail. "So if I feel comfortable, everything will be okay. If not then I'll have to do a couple of things."

The first-year Raptor practiced with team on Tuesday with his wrist wrapped.

"We'll see how far we go. If I don't feel comfortable and I feel like I can't shoot the ball and can't dribble I'll have to go in a different direction.

Barbosa injured his wrist in a fall Friday night while the team was playing in Montreal. It is the same wrist that he had surgery on last season to remove a cyst.

The seven-year veteran had played well for the Raptors during the preseason and was expected to provide quality scoring off the bench for Toronto.

Barbosa was limited to 44 games last year for the Suns, averaging 9.5 points per game.
Raptors' Barbosa will eventually need surgery on wrist

This is very bad.

I doubt he'll put his career in jeopardy, and there aren't too many quality scorers left on the roster.

DeRozan and Weems will really need to step up.

Where's the guy who chastised me for saying he's been perpetually injured over the course of his career?

I don't mind if we lose this year; as long we get top 3 pick and somehow get Nash to come here (Feels like he dont want to be in Pheonix anymore) will be all good going into 2011-2012 prior to having healthy Barbosa ^_^

wow these are factors that happen to teams that usually land that no 1 pick in the next draft even if we still win some games

Good news: no Barbosa, means less wins and a higher draft pick

Bad news: Decrease in Barbosa's trade value, eliminating one of our very few trading assets

What kind of surgery do you have in this case? Nothing is broken, no cyst, what then?
