(DA -- LINK HERE: Ajinca needs thumb surgery)
Bad news for our fellow Bobcat in the D-League, as Bonnell is reporting that Ajinca is going to require surgery on his thumb. This is a shame because he has been playing very well as of late, and this might dampen his progress. For those wanting to trade him, it might affect trade talks as well.
I had the feeling that we were going to recall Ajinca near the end of the season and use him some as we make our final play off push. Chandler's status (and what he might be able to contribute) is another enigma as well.
It's unclear how long Ajinca will be out.
