It’s a fresh and bright new year, as 2011 is welcomed in. And with the coming of the new year, we celebrate the NBA in true fashion: by telling you the myriad number of people who are out with injuries.
Gerald Wallace left practice Sunday after aggravating a bone bruise in his left ankle.
Andre Iguodala is out with Achilles tendinitis for several weeks.
Luc Richard Mbah a Moute suffered a concussion and is day-to-day.
Anderson Varejao broke his face. His face. He’s only going to miss a few games, but the dude broke his face.
Paul Pierce left the game against the Raptors Sunday with a tweaked ankle. He should be fine, since the Celtics don’t really have any injury issues. (Pause.)
Mehmet Okur is waiting on an MRI on his back.
Caron Butler probably has a patellar tendon tear, but we won’t know for sure until Monday.
Al Harrington has a bum thumb.
Seriously, people. Stop getting injured! That’s an order! Or something.
