Barrett: The Latest On Joel Przybilla

Blazers Broadcaster Mike Barrett has the latest on Joel Przybilla's summer, which unfortunately has been one of rehabilitation after dual knee surgeries last season. Here's the opening question and answer of an extended interview, which should provide some reason for optimism. --------------------- MB: How are you progressing? What does your workout schedule involve right now? JP: I'm doing a lot of biking, and I love that. I started jumping this week, and that's actually a big thing for me. I was just in Portland and saw Dr. (Don) Roberts. He's very happy with where I'm at right now. He's got me jumping rope, and doing some light stuff on the court. I can't believe how far I've come. I would hope by mid September I'll start going much harder on the court. They want me to get to the point where I can jump, and land, comfortably. We're shooting for me being ready to roll on opening night. It's a realistic goal and it's all I'm thinking about right now. --------------------- Here's a link to the full interview. And speaking of biking, if you haven't read the story behind Przybilla's custom bicycle over at BikePortland.org, get on that right now. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
