Blazers Expect Joel Przybilla to Return in December

The Oregonian reports that the Portland Trailblazers expect center Joel Przybilla to return from his ruptured patella injury in either late November or early December. This would put his return about 20 games into the season.

The Breakdown
With Przybilla out and the uncertainty around Greg Oden's return, the Blazers will turn to Marcus Camby to play extended minutes early on. Once Przybilla comes back, he may end up being the odd man out if all the Portland big men are healthy. Oden, Camby, and LaMarcus Aldridge are a talented trio that will eat up all of the minutes in the frontcourt. At this point, I don't feel Przybilla is worth drafting in any leagues.
