Bad news :dead:.

Looks like he's going to have to have some complicated surgery on his knee. If he gets surgery he's probably done for the year, and if he doesn't he still won't be able to come back this month.

On FOXSports, I read that he'll be out from anywhere from 3 months to the rest of the season. If 3 months is the earliest he can return, then he should probably just sit out the season to be on the safe side. This was just casually mentioned in one of their articles, so I'm not sure if it's 100% accurate.

Aslong as Matt can comeback next at 100% of the player he was this year his injury will only help the Jazz's future.

Looks like Jazz has had more than a handful of injury problems. Looking on the bright side, Jazz will get a higher draft pick and with everyone healthy next year, make a more serious run for the playoffs.

This is sickening news, but it does have a silver lining.

The Jazz were never going to go anywhere in the playoffs, IF they made it, which is a longshot. HOwever, they were on target for a draft pick in the 10-15 range, which is not THAT useful.

If Harpring has no long term effects from the injury it will mean:

* DeShawn and Sasha will get a bigger opportunity to develop
* More losses are inevitable, thus sliding the Jazz down the standings

Next year could see a very strong Jazz team emerge, if we get a good pick and use it wisely.

FInally, if the Jazz make it to 30 wins with the remaining roster Sloan must be given Coach of the Year.
