Nate McMillan to Undergo Achilles Surgery, Miss Upcoming Road Trip

80

Via text message from the team... -------------- Nate McMillan will undergo surgery on Monday to repair ruptured right Achilles tendon. McMillan will coach Saturday versus Houston but will miss the team's upcoming 4 game road trip. Nate McMillan sustained injury at Friday's practice. Lead Assistant Dean Demopoulos will serve as head coach in McMillan's absence. -------------- During today's practice, Nate McMillan, along with Assistant Coach Monty Williams, participated in full-court scrimmage play because the team's recent rash of injuries left them short of live bodies. McMIllan conducted his post-practice interviews while sitting on a training table. His right ankle area was iced and he was in noticeable pain, grimacing at times. The scene was totally surreal then and, given this update the Blazers just sent over, is even more surreal now. Thoughts go out to Coach McMillan. PS Thanks to llamaiguana who had this in the fanshots. -- Ben Golliver | (benjamin.golliver@gmail.com) | Twitter
