Jeff Taylor, Charlotte Bobcats small forward, will not be able to play for the rest of the season due to a ruptured right Achilles tendon, and price per head sportsbooks wonder what effect this could have on the team’s performance.
Coach Steve Clifford said that he’s not sure if Taylor’s tendon is partially or completely torn, and will not know about the player’s recovery time until after he goes through surgery. But price per head sportsbooks know that after a torn Achilles tendon, a player will typically have to do from four to six months of rehabilitation.
“It’s unfortunate for him, especially, but also for the team,” Clifford said before the game against the Utah Jazz on Saturday night. “Sports are like any other business, it starts with people — and he’s a great person.”
Taylor, who is a native of Sweden and a favourite with pay per head services, suffered the injury during the first half of the game against the Detroit Pistons on Friday night.
The player stepped into a starting role after Michael Kidd-Gilchrist suffered a broken hand. Price per head sportsbooks saw that in 26 games, the player had an average of 8.0 points and 2.3 rebounds. On December 27, Kidd-Gilchrist will be evaluated again.
Pay per head services learned that for Saturday night’s game for Charlotte (13-14), Anthony Tolliver was listed as the starter.
“We’ll go by matchups,” Clifford said. “Tonight they are bigger so we will start Anthony Tolliver and then we will just take it game by game.”
The Bobcats recently signed Chris Douglas-Roberts to give it another option at small forward, and price per head sportsbooks would like to see how the player will perform.
