Bobcats’ Przybilla done for the season
Charlotte Bobcats backup center Joel Przybilla will miss the
remainder of the season with continued pain in his right knee.
The Bobcats on Thursday announced Przybilla will undergo another
procedure to remove wires inserted in the knee after he twice tore
his patella tendon. Przybilla has not played for Charlotte since
March 7. He was acquired from Portland in a Feb. 24 trade that sent
Gerald Wallace to the Trail Blazers.
Charlotte is left with only one healthy center, Kwame Brown. But
coach Paul Silas says it’s unlikely they’ll waive Przybilla and
sign a big man since any new player wouldn’t be eligible for the
Silas also doesn’t expect Stephen Jackson, Tyrus Thomas or Shaun
Livingston to play Friday at Orlando due to nagging injuries.
