Zydrunas Ilgauskas admitted to hospital, will not play versus Spurs

Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

Zydrunas Ilgauskas was admitted to a Miami hospital for treatment of a foot infection Sunday and is expected to miss the Heat’s Monday night game against the San Antonio Spurs.

Ilgauskas stepped on a nail in his home last Friday, which kept him out of Saturday’s game against the Grizzlies. And by game, I mean total destruction by metaphorical basketball fireball. ESPN reports that head coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters Sunday that Ilgauskas was expected to be released from the hospital Sunday afternoon, but would be held out versus the Spurs.

While Ilgauskas isn’t a real difference maker, he’ll be missed against the Spurs, who struggle with big men who can stretch the floor. Of course, the important thing is that Ilgauskas won’t wind up foaming from the mouth and afraid of water. Wait, that’s rabies. I always get those confused.

      Who else do you know in the NBA that’s 7’3″ and shoots long 2’s well? He’s slow as molasses but he generally makes good decisons on both ends of the floor. Give him a little credit

    On a team full of thugs, scumbags, and gravy trainers, this guy is the only class act. And, he can complete a proper sentence while avoiding speaking of himself in the third person.
    He’s 7’3″ and 35 years old, with about a half pound of metal rods in his foot. Of course he’s slow.

    Get well soon, Big Z!
