Portland Trail Blazers Wesley Matthews

Out for season

6 Mar, 2015

Matthews tears his left Achilles tendon. He will miss the rest of the NBA season.

I’ve made that same cut hundreds of thousands of times in my life. I felt the initial pop, and I think you guys could tell on the replay, I looked back, and it feels like someone kicked you. I was praying that someone was back there. No one was back there, and I heard Ron [Garretson], the ref, he actually says, ‘Oh no’ like he knew…I’m frustrated, man. I’m frustrated. They say everything happens for a reason, and I was thinking it, too. But what was the reason? I can’t find it right now.
