Report: Grizzlies Arthur could be out for season with Achilles injury

(WMC-TV) - Memphis Grizzlies forward Darrell Arthur left practice Sunday morning with a right Achilles injury.

Arthur will officially be reevaluated Monday, but the Commercial Appeal is reporting he could be lost for the season.

The injury comes as a serious blow to the Grizzlies front court.  Arthur had just begun practicing after sitting out with left Achilles soreness.

Last season, the 6-9 Arthur came off the bench for Memphis, averaging 9 points and 4.3 rebounds a game for the Grizzlies.

If Arthur misses the season, the Grizzlies could go the free-agent route to fill the void or open up trade options for O.J. Mayo again.

After turning down a Mayo for Brandon Rush and Josh McRoberts offer from Indiana, the Grizzlies said they would not trade Mayo this season.
