Darrell Arthur played in 80 games for the Memphis Grizzlies last year, his third season in the NBA. The 6-9 backup to power forward Zach Randolph averaged 9.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, 0.8 blocks and slightly more than 20 minutes per game.
It looks like the Griz are going to need to find those points from another source this season. The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports that Arthur left practice Sunday morning with what was believed to be a torn right Achilles that may have him out for the entire 66-game season. A preliminary evaluation indicated that Arthur's condition is serious, sources told the paper.
In his second season in the league, back in 2009-10, Arthur sat our four months after having surgery on a partially torn right pectoral muscle.
