Elton Brand Out for One Month

Mike ThomasContributor IDecember 18, 2008

Sixers forward Elton Brand will miss one month due to a shoulder injury that occurred in Wednesday night's game against the Bucks.

Elton fell for a pump fake by rookie Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and came down on his shoulder.

His absence will test the team’s depth as Mo Speights and Reggie Evans will have to step up in his place.

Brand signed a five-year, $80 million contract in the summer. He has averaged 16 points and 10 boards per game.
