Basketball Team Takes A Beating, Drops to 4-1

The good news is the Warriors played well enough in the fourth quarter to squeak by the Sacramento Kings last night in a game on their schedule that they 'should' win. The bad news is my church league team that was undefeated fell hard in the second half last night after trailing by just four at halftime.

I'll spare you the details of the game, other than that one of the members of our team dramatically dislocated his finger in the first two minutes of play. Since he didn't drive to the game, another player from our seven man roster had to leave with him to drive him to the emergency room. As a result, we played basically the entire game with five players. Here is the email that our injured player sent to the team this morning:

"My right pinky was dislocated at the knuckle above the first/bottom finger segment. The doctor said there might be a minor fracture, but couldn't really tell from the X-ray image. Either way I'll be wearing a splint for a month, so I won't be able to play for the rest of the season. I hope you guys have better luck in the next game and the playoffs."

We are still in fine shape standings-wise at 4-1, but now have to play the rest of the season without our most scrappy player and one of our best rebounders. He was one of the big reasons we were so improved defensively from last season.

I'll be sure to let you know what happens.
