Golf cart 'bogey' ruins Jason Collins' score, elbow tendon
By J.E. Skeets
I was going to let this unusual news intentionally slip past my blog radar — you know, save new Minnesota center Jason Collins anymore embarrassment — but then I realized just how little was going on, and, more importantly, just how much my dad would enjoy it. So ... sorry, Jason — family first.
Per Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:
New Timberwolves center Jason Collins probably will miss training camp and the regular season's opening week after undergoing surgery in California on Monday to repair an elbow tendon.
Collins was injured in what a team spokesman called a "freak" golf-cart accident. He partially ruptured his triceps tendon after his golf cart skidded and tipped over.
And that's that. Collins is expected to miss eight weeks. Doh!
But here's what I want to know: Did Collins' twin brother, Utah Jazz center Jarron, actually feel Jason's pain at the time of the accident? Like, was Jarron chilling at home in California, sipping ice tea out on the porch, when all of a sudden a lightning bolt of pain shot through his arm?
And what about Brook and Robin Lopez? They're twins, they went to Stanford — did they feel anything?
So many questions, man. So. Many. Questions. We need a CSI: Minnesota.
