I'm pretty certain I know why these injuries are happening

During the offseason, I announced loudly and repeatedly that the Celtics had zero chance of even contending because their decrepit old geezer bodies were certain to break down.  Apparently, the basketball gods interpreted those pronouncements as an invitation to decimate the youngest playing rotation in the NBA--that of my beloved Portland Trailblazers.

OK, I'm withholding final judgement on this for now.  But if the Celtics end up winning the championship this season--sans a single serious injury--all doubt will be eliminated.  I will fully accept blame for this brutal injury parade of a season. 

Of course, if it turns out that the Blazers have now used up their quota of serious injuries for the decade, I might end up taking a bow.  How ideal it would be to have used 'em all up at once--and before the championship window opened.
