Rudy Gay Out Four Weeks


Rudy Gay is slated to miss the  next four weeks (at least) with a partially separated left shoulder. This is bad news for Memphis fans. This team has shown a great deal of heart as of late, lets hope they have a lot more left in the tank.

The injury impacts them in the short run and in the long run. In the short run, it hurts, badly, because over the next four weeks we have two games against San Antonio, and games against Dallas, the Knicks, Heat, Thunder, and Hornets. We've beaten the Thunder without Rudy once, but I don't like our chances in any of those games near as much as I do with him in the line-up.

One other affect it has, is it virtually cancels any thought of trading OJ Mayo. When you lose 20 points a game, its very difficult to trade away someone who is capable of replacing that. Now maybe the front office can put more pressure on Sam Young to score, give DA more time off the bench, resurrect DeMarre Carroll, or try to make a trade for a good shooter that they think can help them out, but I don't really see that happening. As of right now, it certainly looks like OJ just scored one more full season in Memphis, with the assist going to Rudy Gay's shoulder.
