The only guy happy to hear this would be Devin Williams. Leaves a massive hole in the Melbourne front line. Makes it a clear point of attack for opposition teams now.

re: David Andersen

Sad news for the veteran and for the league. Just when United was picking up momentum too. Guess it will be even more of the Ware-Goulding show.

Funny how first Martin and now Andersen have had their knees injured by the resident "tough, low-skill" role player from Adelaide (Teys) and Perth (Hire). Not saying anything is intentional or untoward, but it's just funny how that it seems to work out like that.

Even when Russell Westbrook tore his meniscus it was Patrick Beverly that caused it.

Per Andersen's recent tweet, he has scans tomorrow https://twitter.com/daveandersen13/status/807518643076493312

Where are you getting "out for season"?

I don't think Devin Williams would be happy to see Andersen out for the season, as there's a fair chance Melbourne would go after a better import to fill that hole.

How can you say he is out for the season when he has scans today?

My thoughts too, paul.
Andersen went down in the very early minutes in Perth, yet Devin still only played 7:50

re: David Andersen

Couldn't disagree more splinky, the only chance of Melbourne finding a dominant big would be to release Williams and bring in an import as there aren't any quality Australian big men available..

Yeah if Andersen is out for the season then you would think Devin Williams will go.

Sucks that there have been so many injuries this season to all teams but especially so many big name Aussies.

Dave Andersen injury update

"Melbourne United forward David Andersen has undergone scans on the knee he injured as a result of a collision with a Perth Wildcats player on Friday night.

The scans cleared him of any major structural damage, and confirmed a grade 2-3 medial ligament strain. He does not require surgery.

Andersen has started rehab, and is expected to be out for six weeks.

Wasn't Teys knocked back by a Wildcats player on the rebound, and fell on Martin's leg? I can't remember clearly now.

Firstly, I'd contest their being low skill. They're role players. And I'd secondly say that the reason it "seems to work out like that" is because there are more role players than players suffering multi-week injuries.

I'd happily classify hire as low skill.

He doesn't shoot, pass or dribble well. But he does rebound well and sticks to his task on defence.

Hasn't Andersen been pretty trash this season?

I can't remember one especially impressive performance so far
