Are the Portland Trail Blazers centers cursed? First, Greg Oden is lost for the season with a knee injury. Next, Joel Przybilla suffered a serious knee injury and is also out for the season. To fill the whole in the middle, the Blazers traded for Marcus Camby.
Now Marcus Camby is injured.
His injury occurred in only his third game with the game. Against the New Jersey Nets, Brook Lopez stepped on Camby’s ankle and Camby was unable to return.
The good news for Camby and the Blazers is that the injury is considered minor. At most, the Blazers think Camby could miss a few games.
At 33-26, Portland is currently the eighth seed in the Western Conference. However, they’ll need a center to stay healthy if they truly have a hope of staying in contention.
Brandon Roy couldn’t help but ask the obvious question after the latest injury.
Said Roy: “Is our center spot cursed?”
