Joel Przybilla: Officially Done for the Year

New, comments

The Blazers have confirmed what we expected after his injury Tuesday night against the Mavericks: Joel Przybilla will not play again during the 2009-2010 season.  

From the Blazers via text....

Joel Przybilla underwent successful surgery today to repair a ruptured right patella tendon.  He is out for the season. He is expected to be ready for training camp.

Przybilla's season ends with averages of 4.1 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 22.7 minutes played in 30 games.  Przybilla started 9 games this year after fellow center Greg Oden also went down with a knee injury.

Last season, Przybilla accomplished a personal goal by playing in all 82 games.
