Blazers’ Wells on Injured List

November 23, 1999

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) _ The Portland Trail Blazers placed backup shooting guard Bonzi Wells on the injured list Monday with a sprained left knee and activated point guard Gary Grant.

Wells was hurt in a collision during the second quarter of Portland’s 100-96 overtime win at Charlotte on Saturday night.

Wells must sit out at least five games, meaning he won’t be able to return until Dec. 1 against the Hornets at the Rose Garden.

He is averaging 6.6 points in 10 games.

The Blazers are 4-0 on their six-game road trip, which continues Tuesday night at Cleveland and Wednesday night in Minnesota. Portland, with an NBA-best 10-1 record, returns home to face Houston on Friday.

Grant has spent the entire season on the injured list with a strained right hamstring.
