Wesley Matthews: I would be lying if I did not admit to having tears fall down my face this morning because I was hoping to just be waking up from a bad dream. I’m sorry this response took this long but none of it felt real, and to be honest, it still doesn’t. My season is over and my will, my heart, my faith and my strength will now be tested, which is a challenge I welcome. Though my season is over, #ripcity’s season is far from over! And I will be there ‘till the end! As I read through all the messages via text and Twitter, I was in awe. I was in shock and disbelief not only because of the injury, but because I never could have imagined how many people could be genuinely hurt, sad and upset for me. To my coaches- thank you; to my brothers and teammates- thank you; to my fans and #ripcity- thank you; to my family and friends- thank you! Like most of my life, a challenge has been placed in front of me—a challenge that will be nothing but another chapter in my story. THANK YOU FOR YOUR LOVE, SUPPOR T & PRAYERS. See you on the court next season. #arrowlife out. -Ironman Instagram

Jim McIlvaine: While I was within the timeframe of the study, I was not included in the survey. My final NBA injury was a ruptured calf on January 22, 2001, but along with it, I had partially-torn my Achilles tendon. It was the most-painful injury I had ever experienced and the longest recovery. It took me about seven months to get back on the court at full steam and even then, I didn't have anywhere near the confidence that I had before the injury. The Nets already knew Jamie Feick's career was over with his injury and perhaps fearing I'd come into camp and re-tear my Achilles and end up in the same position, the offered me a buyout. Add me to the list and the percentage grows to 42% of NBA players with Achilles tendon injuries never returning to the game. SportsBlog

He doesn't just make three-pointers with the best of them. He makes this team. He has an unbelievably positive attitude. Sometimes, I believe, he wills the Blazers out of slumps with his sheer belief that the Blazers are the best team in the West. He holds teammates accountable, willing to call them out if he sees an effort, or an attitude, not meet his standards. And he sets an admirable example with his tireless and determined work ethic. I've seen some great, hard-working professionals put on a Blazers uniform - Scottie Pippen, Joel Przybilla and Roy among them - and none of them outwork Matthews. Oregonian

Portland Trail Blazers swingman Wesley Matthews fell to the floor during the third quarter of their 94-75 win against the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday, and he had to stay down for a while. Matthews was eventually helped off the court. An MRI confirmed the Blazers' worst fears: he ruptured his Achilles tendon, and he's out for the season, the team announced. CBSSports.com
