Amir Johnson will sit out in Miami

by | Oct 30, 2007 | 15 comments

Amir Johnson will be sitting out the season opener in Miami due to a sore Achilles tendon. It doesn’t seem as though it’s that serious and I am sure that Arnie Kandor is working his magic as we speak. So we won’t be seeing this until Amir is 100%, why risk it.

Jarvis Hayes also suffered a sprained ankle in practice Monday but it looks as though he’s going to test it out on Thursday in Miami.

At this point you have to hope that this is it for Pistons injuries this season. Cross your fingers Pistons fans.

    Dear injuries,

    Please stop now.

    Thank you,

    Pistons fans

    Wait. Is Amir’s sore Achilles related to his pre-preseason injury or is this something new?

    Along with Anony 8:31’s suggestion about taping the ankles, I think it should also be a rule that during practices, no player is allowed within 4 feet of any other player.

    Luckily, aside from Stuckey’s, no player’s injury has been devestatingly serious (knock on wood, rub rabbit’s foot, kiss horseshoe, and what the hell ever else you do for good luck).

    I’ve never been so excited for the first day of the season! GO PISTONS!

    have you guys heard? there is some rumours again about kobe heading to detroit for rip and tayshaun. i personally think we need to send a message that shitty kobe is not wanted in detroit. especially not for rip hamilton and tayshaun prince.

    ^^ I’m pretty sure Kobe’s not going to Detroit. He picks what city he wants to be in, and Detroit is not one of them.

    yea…theres no way kobes going to detroit. Although the thought of him going to chicago scares me. Chicago doesnt need to get any better.

    Unless the Lakers change their mind about who they want from Chicago in return for Kobe, the Bulls would lose 3 important players. And Kobe has been quoted as saying that if the Bulls aren’t left with enough talent to plug around him, he won’t want to play there. Somebody (either Chicago, L.A. or Kobe) is going to have to settle in order for the deal to get done.

    I’ll be at the game in Miami tomorrow, pissing off the (fair weather) hometown fans as always. Can’t decide to wear Chauncey or Sheed…
