The Portland Trail Blazers had to take to the court Wednesday night for their final preseason tune-up without the services of 6-11 center Marcus Camby after "tweaking his left knee during warm-ups," according to the Associated Press. Portland won the game in its waning seconds when Michael Beasley sunk two free throws to make the score 85-84.
Camby will have an MRI done Thursday, the AP reports. That's the same knee, by the way, that Camby had surgery on back in January to patch up a partial tear of the meniscus.
"I don't want to make a big deal out of it," Camby said, according to the Oregonian. "We'll know more [Thursday], but I don't think it's anything. If it was Monday [during the season opener], I would be out there."
The 37-year-old, two-time All-Star, who was drafted by the Toronto Raptors second overall way back in 1996 (behind Allen Iverson), averaged 4.7 points, 10.3 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game last season.
