Martell Webster's back hurts
- Bad enough to have surgery this morning apparently, says a Wolves’ press release. The surgery is called a microdiscectomy. This means it is a small discectomy (never even been to medical school!) The release goes on to tell us that “no timetable for Webster’s return has been established, but the typical recovery time for this procedure is 4-6 weeks.” This is kind of a bummer, by the way.
- Here’s some better news. Henry at Truehoop points out that, according to the NBA’s efficiency measure, Kevin Love had the best preseason in the Association (that’s among players that played at least 20 minutes/game). This is in no small part because he’s hit 14 out of his 24 threes, third best among players who have attempted at least 20. Please take this with a grain of salt.
