Kings lose Garcia to freak physio-ball injury

Ladies and gentlemen, kindly put away your yoga balls. Thank you.

This is me talking, not Kings swingman Francisco Garcia, who has every reason to concur. He'll have surgery Saturday after breaking his right wrist when a physio-ball he was using to exercise exploded.

No, I didn't make that up. It's right here in Sacramento Bee scribe Sam Amick's blog. Amick also did some research and discovered that this was not an unprecedented event. He also has video of Kings GM Geoff Petrie discussing this unfortunate turn of events, which makes Sacramento's signing of Desmond Mason all the more important.

Meanwhile, I think we have a leader in the clubhouse for strangest NBA injury of the decade. Tough luck for Garcia and the Kings.
