Elton Under the Knife

Elton Brand will go under the knife today to have his ruptured Achilles tendon repaired.  In fact, it's entirely possible that the surgery has already occurred as I write this.

Elton opted to have the surgery performed by Dr. Craig Morgan at Wilmington Hospital in Wilmington, Delaware.  Morgan repaired Brand's knee cartilage a few years back, so there is a level of comfort there apparently.  

The team has promised to release a statement after the surgery and after Dr. Morgan has consulted with team physician, Dr. Tony Daly.  

The official press release concerning the surgery is here.

A brief LA Times story by Jaime Cárdenas is here.
