They will know us by our crutches

Is this the most injury prone group of athletes ever assembled? I'm guessing Rudy suffered the ol' "wind knocked out of him"  tonight (aka, broadcaster speak for getting hit in the junk), so his life-flight trip to the hospital (my made-up reason for why he couldn't go back in) is understandable to the women of Portland. OMSW hurt something (who knows what). Sean Marks (effectively our 6th string center after Camby, Oden, Prz, Pendy, and Oberto) fulfilled his Blazer center destiny of writhing in pain on the Rose Garden hardwood.

What strikes me more than anything, however, was the apparent apathy of fans in the Rose Garden tonight in response to these apparent injuries. It just doesn't seem like anybody is capable of being surprised by them anymore. So, my question is not rhetorical... this team is so injury prone that their injuries no longer cause the fans concern. Does this quality of the Blazers earn them a place in the fragility hall of fame?
