Elton Brand Injury

According to, Elton Brand suffered a ruptured achilles this past Friday. An unfortunate injury for one of the league's most consistent power forwards.


"EL SEGUNDO, August 3 (AP) -- Los Angeles Clippers forward Elton Brand ruptured his left Achilles' tendon on Friday during his daily workout.

The 28-year-old will undergo surgery but plans for the operation have not been finalized yet, the Clippers said.

"It's unfortunate that this had to happen,'' general manager Elgin Baylor said in a statement. "But knowing Elton and how dedicated he is to his profession and how hard he works, I believe he'll be back 100 percent as good as ever.''

Last month, Brand - a veteran of eight NBA seasons - withdrew from the U.S. national team because of injury. He averaged 20.5 points and 9.3 rebounds last season, when the Clippers failed to make the playoffs."

Let's wish for a speedy recovery for Elton, an all-around good player and good guy on and off the court.
