Rudy Fernandez Sidelined For Four to Six Weeks
Fernandez had surgery this week to alleviate pain and pressure in his legs. A damaged nerve in his back was causing the disruption, and the second-year guard should miss at least a month of action.
He has already been cleared to begin conditioning, but will be limited to non-basketball activities, as his legs and back are still vulnerable to contact and severe pressure.
Martell Webster is the most likely to benefit from his absence, while second-year combo guard Jarryd Bayless could get some extra minutes, as well.
Brandon Jennings Not Worried About Knee Injury
Brandon Jennings reportedly hyper-extended his knee in Milwaukee's victory on Wednesday night, but was healthy enough to re-enter and finish the game.
The injury doesn't look to be anything serious, and we fully expect Jennings to start against the Blazers in his next game.
Luke Ridnour to Wear Elbow Brace For Six Weeks
This would normally be bad news, but Ridnour returned from an elbow injury with the brace on, and chipped in 15 points and six assists in the Bucks' win on Wednesday night.
Ridnour didn't seem to have any issues playing with the brace, and considering it's on his non-shooting arm, it doesn't figure to become a problem. Ridnour remains a solid utility play off the bench for the Bucks.
Allen Iverson Not Looking Good
Iverson has been shooting under 37 percent from the floor since re-joining his old team, while scoring just 11 points in both of the 76ers' losses this week.
It's pretty clear that he's not "The Answer" for a 5-18 squad that has been struggling all season. If you picked AI up to salvage your points category, you may want to hold off and see if he starts picking things up .
