Injury Update: Jose Calderon Tears Thigh

Jose Calderon And you all wonder why I despise any sort of extra curricular basketball…

From the Toronto Star:

Jose Calderon will not play for Spain today in the Olympic men’s basketball semifinals.

The Raptor point guard has what’s being called a partial tear of the adductor muscle, an injury revealed after an MRI here on Thursday.

Toronto officials are following up with Spanish doctors to discover the severity of the injury, treatment options and a prognosis.

Obviously, there is plenty of time for Calderon to heal up.  But with the Raps trading away TJ Ford, this is something that the team can ill afford.  Don’t move him too far down your rankings quite yet, but Toronto’s assist machine will definitely be on the shelf for a few weeks.
