The Memphis Grizzlies are already a bit thin in terms of depth in their frontcourt and they may have suffered a big blow Sunday. According to the Commercial-Appeal, power forward Darrell Arthur left practice Sunday morning with a serious Achilles injury and the team fears he may be lost for all of the 2011-12 season.
Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that Arthur is done for the year after an MRI revealed a "season-ending torn right Achilles."
Ironically, Arthur had just returned to practice after having a sore left Achilles.
Arthur was a solid backup to Zach Randolph last season and without him in the rotation, the Grizzlies will have to look to signing a free agent or maybe the D-League for depth. Because they don't even have a backup for Marc Gasol as of now.
