The Charlotte Observer reports that Bobcats F Tyrus Thomas suffered a calf injury and will miss two months of action. The injury will not require surgery. From the Observer:
Monday’s MRI revealed the muscle tear near his calf. He also has a second-degree strain of the calf itself.
The injury does not require surgery, but has a relatively long recovery period.
The Bobcats traded for Hakim Warrick over the weekend, in what was considered a non-story, but now seems like a huge deal. Warrick is the best player suited to fill in minutes for Thomas, given how coach Mike Dunlap has pushed the team to play faster. Byron Mullens will likely get more time alongside Bismack Biyombo, but if the Cats go small, their only option might be Warrick.
Thomas was averaging just seven points and three rebounds in 18 minutes of play per game. Thomas is owed $8 million for the season.
