SACRAMENTO, CA, September 14, 2009 —- Sacramento Kings swingman Francisco Garcia was re-evaluated today by team physician Dr. Richard Marder. It was determined that he suffered a minor fracture in his right ring finger. Garcia has been cleared to resume full basketball activities next week. He is entering his fifth NBA season (all with the Kings).
So after injuring the finger during the FIBA Americas tournament, Francisco has been reevaluated by team doctors and should be back to action sometime next week. That’s good news. Considering camp starts in two weeks-ish, Cisco should be healthy in plenty of time.
With Beno Udrih still about 10 days away from being healthy (according to initial injury estimates from September 3rd), the Kings are almost completely healthy going into camp.
Yes, it’s all news we pretty much already knew but it’s the deadest time of year for basketball information when your team isn’t foolishly signing Allen Iverson or when you don’t have a former player heading into the Hall of Fame.
