The chemistry and affection the players have for each other continues to blow me away, and make me proud to be a fan of this group of men: Fernandez was released from a Portland hospital Tuesday afternoon in good spirits and with relatively minor wounds, including a bruised chest and a right hip pointer. The reserve guard is listed as doubtful for the Blazers' game tonight against the Dallas Mavericks, but Rodriguez, who stayed overnight at the hospital with his countryman, said Fernandez was upbeat and improving. He did WHAT? I guess it's very possibly happened before, but it's the first I've ever heard of a teammate staying OVERNIGHT with a player in the hospital, who wasn't comatose or terminal. Warm fuzzies!
