BJ Anthony out for the season
BJ Anthony knew he was in trouble even before he hit the floor.
The Adelaide 36ers' back-up forward was having a break-out game against his former New Zealand Breakers team-mates before rupturing the Achilles tendon in his left foot with 5:29 left in the 74-81 loss at Adelaide Arena.
The injury means Anthony’s NBL season is over, tragic given the form of the Tall Blacks star who rattled off a 10-0 individual run in Sunday’s loss in which he produced 11 points and a game-high nine rebounds in just 15 minutes.
Sixers coach Joey Wright and club general manager Dean Parker today will meet to discuss whether to replace Anthony - former replacement Richie Edwards and import Daequon Montreal are options - or retain the current group.Full article
