Webster is Back



According to the columbian, Martell Webster has been cleared for 5 on 5 drills!

 

However, now that Webster has been cleared for full action this season, he is expected to challenge Travis Outlaw and Nicolas Batum for the Blazers' starting small forward position during the team's upcoming training camp, which begins Sept. 29.


Blazers general manager Kevin Pritchard and team president Larry Miller recently compared the successful return of a healthy Webster to acquiring an offseason free agent at no cost.


"He's been a starter. He's young. He's athletic," Pritchard said. "We're going to need his shooting ability. And if he comes back and he shoots the ball well and can maintain his health, he'll make us better just by that."


Webster said he is more concerned this season with being a finisher rather than a starter. He stated that watching from the bench as Outlaw closed out games last season from the small forward position opened his eyes to a new goal: Becoming a dependable go-to player when the game is on the line.



 

While I know this seems like it has been coming for awhile, it is great news to me to hear that Webster has finally cleared the last hurdle to his recovery.  Hopefully he can bring it like he was in training camp last year, as I was sure he was on the verge of becoming a consistant NBA player.
