    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP)—Portland Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan ruptured his right Achilles tendon during practice Friday and will need surgery.

    McMillan will coach Saturday night’s game against Houston, but he will miss next week’s four-game road trip.

    The Blazers say McMillan will have surgery on Monday.

    Assistant coach Dean Demopoulos will take McMillan’s place starting Monday in New York.

    man that has to hurt. get well soon. now if we go on a four game winning streak i guess it's time to think about the coaching of mcmillan. but hey he must hustle when he is coaching at practice too.

    So sorry coach!  My husband ruptured his about 5 years ago, but he was up at Timberline skiing again 6 months to the day.  Best of luck to you.

    Hope everything heals good coach. Perhaps in the future, you shouldn't go for the windmill dunk right outta' the gate?

    Something getting swept under the rug is the fact how well Monty Williams has performed as "acting coach" while Nate has to take a seat on the bench. I really hope we can retain Coach Monty for at least one more year, but I fear he'll be a hot commodity this offseason.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances. 

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
