McGrady says shoulder arthritic, knee slow to heal

By CHRIS DUNCAN, AP Sports Writer

HOUSTON (AP)—The Houston Rockets, buzzing about the arrival of Ron Artest, already have injury concerns with Tracy McGrady.

Houston’s leading scorer said Monday that his left shoulder is arthritic and will require surgery after this season. He also said his left knee is healing slower than expected from surgery in the spring.

McGrady sprained his shoulder against Sacramento on March 24, and wore padding to protect it for the rest of the season. He had surgery in May to clear loose tissue in his shoulder and knee. He said his knee is “probably 75-80 percent" healthy and will take another two months to fully heal.

McGrady said an MRI revealed the arthritis in his shoulder.

“That’s something I’ve got to deal with again this season," said McGrady, who averaged 21.6 points last season and was selected third-team all-NBA. “My knee should be ready to go by opening night."


McGrady said the shoulder injury was not going to keep him out of practices or games, but added that, “it’s going to bother me."

He's always hurt in some way. That's what prevents him from taking that next level to becoming a LeBron or a Kobe.

Such a shame, it seems T-Mac may be one of those players who could've been a mega superstar if injuries haven't plagued him.

Oh well, he was going to get injured sooner or later. Sucks how much injury has plagued him throughout his career.

With the Rockets injuries are a matter of when not if.
