    Default Kleiza's Season & Future In Doubt

    Not good news at all

    The 28-year-old Kleiza has been sidelined for the last couple of months and has appeared in only 20 games this season. According to Asta Zukaite of 15min.lt, this number is unlikely to change.

    It is claimed that the player could not only be done for the season, but the future of his career in general is in doubt.

    Although Kleiza has stated that the knee issues have been caused by a long summer with the Lithuanian national team, unconfirmed sources suggest that the first arthroscopic surgery, which was performed by Dr. J. Richard Steadman in Colorado in 2011, might not have gone fully according to plan.

    According to the former head of the Lithuanian national teamís delegation and a good friend of Kleiza, Antanas Guoga, it is likely that the surgery will need to be repeated.

    What I found especially funny was them complaining about how he shouldn't have had surgery in the US, but in Lithuania....like...wow....biased quotes are hilarious. There is absolutely no better place in the world to have surgery done, especially if you're rich, than in the USA. Funny that they say Linas thinks the long summer was a factor, but that they cite unconfirmed sources as blaming the procedure. Typical euro sports news: make shit up for the sake of homerism.

    Hope it doesn't totally ruin Linas' career. Be it in the NBA, or in Europe, dude should be able to find a home playing ball somewhere. Especially in Europe where the tweener problem matters less, he could be a star again.

    Also, sidenote to all the people who were wondering "why isn't Linas playing?" and blaming Casey...Casey has issues, but he would hardly sit a guy out for so many games without a reason. I always figured something wasn't quite right with Linas' knee.

    Wonder if the insurance policy (taken out during the tournament/summer) kicks in on his salary? How does one prove/disprove when the injury actually occurred? Another reason why there should be some amendment of the policy to allow players to play for their national teams....like one cannot play for a year for their natl team after incurring an injury...or some version of. This is the second time for Kleiza during his Raptor contract.

    Can the Raps apply for injury exception?

    I'm having a Garbajosa flashback. These guys who insist on playing for their national teams after severe injuries too often end up re-injured.
