MEMPHIS, March 25, 2011 Grizzlies forward Rudy Gay underwent season-ending surgery today to repair a left shoulder subluxation, Grizzlies General Manager and Vice President of Basketball Operations Chris Wallace announced today. The surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Fla.

Gay, who originally suffered the injury on Feb. 15 vs. Philadelphia, will begin his post-operative rehabilitation and is expected to be ready for the start of the 2011-12 season.

That’s what the press release said.

What wasn’t said because it is still unknown is when Rudy Gay will start practicing again, what type of rehab will be required, where he will be doing the rehab and when he can begin full contact drills.

The Grizzlies have survived while Rudy has been out and against a brutal schedule that has included playing the top teams in both conferences a total of four times (Sunday will be the 5th tim) and most of the other games coming against playoff contenders.

There is little doubt that a healthy Rudy Gay would have made a difference in some of those games.

3 Shades of Blue wishes Rudy A speedy and full recovery. This season may have been 10 years in the making but next season is looking like a dream come true for Grizzlies fans if everyone returns healthy.
