Elton Brand Out For The Year

Feb 5, 2009, 3:27 PM EDT

Wow. Elton Brand is reportedly being shut down for the season. From Comcast's website:

Brand will under season-ending surgery Monday on the shoulder he
dislocated on Dec. 17 against Milwaukee. The team’s prized free-agent
signee returned last week but clearly has not been 100 percent. He
averaged just 5.7 points and 4.7 rebounds in 18 minutes in six games
after missing the previous 16 games.

Well that was money well spent this season. Maybe they'll actually make the playoffs now.

As Kulp points out, "This might be the worst possible scenario. We're stuck with the guy,
and now we're still not sure how he fits or what his precise role is
with this team heading into next season. Not good."
