Medina: Wesley Matthews & Elliot Williams Now "100 Percent" Healthy

48

Portland Trail Blazers strength and conditioning coach Bobby Medina joined radio broadcaster Brian Wheeler on TrailBlazers.TV to provide health updates on guards Wesley Matthews and Elliot Williams. Matthews dealt with a nagging ankle injury last season while Williams underwent shoulder surgery back in March. ----------------------------- Wesley Matthews "One hundred percent. He's been working really hard this summer. Was at Summer League. He's in Madison working out. My assistant Todd [Forcier] is working out with him right now. He's lost some weight. He looks great. I think he's going to have a great, great year this year. "The [lockout-shortened] season last year, without a training camp, guys get injured and they nurse the injuries the whole year. It wasn't just Wesley, it was guys around the league. "I think this year you will see a new-and-improved Wesley Matthews." Elliot Williams "Elliot Williams is at 100 percent right now. He's cleared to be ready to play. "He wanted to play at Summer League. Our trainer Jay [Jensen] had to pull the reins on him. He's cleared to do everything right now. We're really excited about Elliot. One of the biggest disappointments for me last year was Elliot getting hurt. I really feel he could have been an impact player for us. I'm excited to see what he can do at 100 percent. "I think he's one of the most athletic guys I've seen. I've been around Shawn Kemp in his prime in Seattle, Travis Outlaw was a pretty athletic guy. I look at Elliot and he has a lot of the same athleticism as those guys." ----------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
