Is there a way I can find out about the specific injury Fernandez and Steve Nash have had? I would like to know if there is somewhere where they keep track of specific player injuries that can be looked at by us. I want to know about their back problems specifically.

Maybe the laws dont allow that much disclosure but just a question.

David Falk praises Neil Olshey, critical of Bouna Ndiaye: "Neil handled our situation in a professional manner. He presented a great opportunity for Roy (Hibbert)." "(It) was classy of Neil to allow us to withdraw from the RFA process once it became apparent Indiana would match. Didn't have to do that." "I have great regard for the way the #Blazers conduct business. This is something I will remember for a very long time." "That Nicolas Batum soap opera is ridiculous. I wish Batum's agent would get the message." "Whatever behavior (his) agent (Bouna) displays, effects his client's relationship with the fans and his teammates." "It's a business, take a qualifier (if) you don't want to be there. I don't believe in all that stuff out in the public." "Roy Hibbert is only 25 yrs old & you never know what will happen in the future. What the ‪#Blazers‬ did is something I'll never forget."

Legendary sports agent David Falk via Chris Haynes' twitter feed. Haynes said he didn't ask David Falk anything about Nicolas Batum. He brought him up on his own.

Bucher: Blazers, Timberwolves Have Years Of Bad Blood

181
Ric Bucher of ESPN.com reports that there has been some bad blood between the Portland Trail Blazers and Minnesota Timberwolves prior to Minnesota's pursuit of Portland restricted free agent forward Nicolas Batum. ------------------------------ The Timberwolves, league sources say, are prepared to sign Batum to a four-year, $46.4 million offer sheet Sunday after repeatedly trying to trade for him. They have offered as many as three future first-round draft picks and even have dangled small forward Derrick Williams, the No. 2 pick in the 2011 draft. The Blazers have resisted every overture even though multiple sources say Portland management believes $46.4 million is vastly more than Batum is worth. ... The Blazers traded swingman Martell Webster to the Timberwolves in a 2010 draft-night trade for Ryan Gomes and the rights to Minnesota's No. 16 pick, Luke Babbitt. The following fall, Webster had back surgery because of a bulging disk. The Blazers were aware of the injury but did not disclose it before the trade, a league source said. The two teams have since been quietly negotiating compensatory terms but have not been able to reach an agreement. ------------------------------ Bucher also reports that the Minnesota's anticipated signing of former Blazers guard Brandon Roy will be a costly move to Portland. Dwight Jaynes of CSNNW.com reports that as well. ------------------------------ When the Trail Blazers gave Roy his max deal, they were apparently able to insure only a fraction of it because of the condition of his knees. But, sources say, they were able to get a limited amount of permanent disability insurance on him that would cover $17 million of the amount owed the player. As long as he was "permanently" disabled. If and when Roy plays again, Portland apparently will not be able to collect that $17 million, none of which has been paid to date. ------------------------------ ed: text edited, bumped to front page
