Wesley Matthews

Blazers lose Wesley Matthews for the season

The basketball Gods are a relentless clan, and they don’t care about our enjoyment — this much is not news. But word of their latest victim is. Portland Trail Blazers shooting guard Wesley Matthews tore his left Achilles tendon last night, in a 94-75 victory over the Dallas Mavericks. Matthews will miss the rest of the season for Portland, who might now be out of contention for the Western Conference crown without their ever-valuable “three-and-D” starter.

Who’s the fourth-best shooting guard in NBA fantasy nine-category leagues right now? Well, of course, it’s Portland Trail Blazer Wesley Matthews.

He is certainly paying big dividends for you if you grabbed him in your 2012 NBA fantasy draft — and you likely got him at a deal — a deal that’s easily giving a nice return on your investment so far.
