Elton Brand, the Clipper Captain, the Clipper MVP, the Clipper leading scorer & rebounder, the face of the Clippers & a true gentleman of the game- fell to an awful torn left Achilles tendon injury today during his usual daily workout. The LA Times is reporting that he will be out for at least the first two months of the season. Clippers GM Elgin Baylor had the following to say about Elton's injury:
“It's unfortunate that this had to happen. But knowing Elton and how dedicated he is to his profession and how hard he works, I believe he'll be back 100% as good as ever.”
The Clippers Topbuzz Clipper fan community would like to wish EB a speedy and full recovery. As we all know he is known for his tremendous work ethic and we can expect him back sooner than later. Get well soon Elton!
