Matthews Hears Pop In Hip, Consecutive Games Streak In Danger
Wesley Matthews heard a pop in his left hip flexor during the fourth quarter of the Portland Trail Blazers game on Saturday against the Kings.
Matthews has played in 250 straight games.
Matthews said he would get electric stimulation throughout the night, rest during Sunday’s practice, then try to play Monday.
“It’s done not only out of stubborness, but out of sacrifice for the team,’’ Matthews said of his streak. “It’s not just an individual thing,I’m doing this so my team knows I’m going to fight for them regardless. As long as I can compete, I’m going to compete.’’
