Surgery for Troy Hudson; out 3-4 months

There will be a full story up on the Web site momentarily, but in the meantime, T-Hud told the Times exclusively at this morning’s shootaround that he’s going to undergo arthroscopic surgery after Jan. 1 to repair a small labrum tear in his left hip, and will miss three to four months with the rehabilitation. Given that there’s less than four months remaining in the regular season (which ends April 16), it’s almost certainly a season-ending procedure for Hudson — and most likely the end of his Warriors career, which is a shame because he’s a solid guy who deserves better.

UPDATE: Story is up on the site.

    Sorry to hear about Troy.

    You want small ball and uptempo?

    Earl Boykins I believe is available. Last time I checked, his contract was bought out by Milwaukee in the Summer. We know Earl loves to run and has won several games for the Warriors.

    No chance, Fred. From what I gather, Earl’s looking for a multi-year contract with a starting salary at or near the full mid-level exception of $5.36 million. It’s hard to see him getting that anywhere — which is why he’s been sitting at home for 30 games — but it’s certainly not going to happen here.
