Joel Przybilla Expected to Return Within the Next Week

Portland Trailblazers center Joel Przybilla is expected back in the line up within the next week. He's been out of action for nearly a year after rupturing his right patella last season.

The Breakdown
This is good news for the injury-depleted Blazers. Once Przybilla returns, he'll back up Marcus Camby and is in line to see in the neighborhood of 20 minutes a night once he shakes the rust and gets into game shape. With the news that Greg Oden is out for the season, Przybilla is guaranteed a regular rotation role for the rest of the season. And because Marcus Camby is a bit of an injury risk himself, Przybilla may be a good player to stash in standard leagues if you really need center help. He's particularly useful in category leagues if you need rebounds and blocks. Przybilla is available in nearly every league.
