Corey Brewer out for season

Brewer out for season

By Jerry Zgoda, Star Tribune

Corey Brewer tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during the second half of Saturday’s loss to Denver and is expected to miss the rest of the season.

A medical imagining test of Brewer’s knee on Monday morning revealed the tear and Wolves coach Randy Wittman and the team got the news in Charlotte on the way to the arena for this morning’s shootaround.

Brewer fell twice in the second half Saturday. The first time, he went back into the team’s locker room briefly but returned to play before he fell again.

“I don’t know when it was but I could gather he got hurt on the first one because he asked to come out and Corey never asks to come out,” Wittman said. “He’s never asked me out of a game before in a year and a half. I thought Corey was starting to fall into understanding how to play, playing with some good confidence. He gives us great energy off the bench. We’re going to miss that.”

Brewer’s absence leaves the Wolves without their best individual defender.

“It hurts obviously,” Wittman said. “That’s what he has been providing. It hurts. But I’ve got confidence that we’ve got guys who can pick up those minutes in a quality way. That’s why you always tell players to be ready because you don’t know. I think we’ve got guys who can step up and provide that. Now they’re going to have the opportunity to do that.”

Brewer’s injury — surgery won’t be done until the swelling subsides in his knee — means more time for Rodney Carney, more time for Rashad McCants (who’s played just 16 minutes in the last three games mainly because he continues to jack up threes), more time for Randy Foye at the 2 and Mike Miller at the 3.

“Opportunities, oppportunities,” Wittmans said. “We could go small. Kevin Ollie has had some good minutes before his (calf) injury. We could move Randy over and Mike down. We could play Rodney and Rashad together. We could do a number of different things there.”

Ryan Gomes called the news “a big blow to him and a big blow to our team. That’s a tough loss for us. He was giving us a lot of energy. He makes plays that really don’t showup too much in the stats, but he’s in the right place at the right time. He’s one of our best defenders because he can guard a lot of different guys at a lot of different positions.

“But we’ve got 15 guys on this team so we have to have someone fill that void. We have to become much better defensively as a team now because he could make those plays and guard gys one on one. Now it goes into soemone else’s hands.”

He was looking better and playing with more confidence this year.

Saw Corey at Mystic Lake yesterday. He was moving around pretty well. I asked him how the knee was and he said it's feeling pretty good. He said he's excited to be playing again this year. I asked about who he thought they would draft but he wouldn't say much. Brewer is so lanky he looked like he could scratch his knee without bending over. Nice guy. He was playing $1 slots...should have been playing high stakes poker or black jack.

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
