Wesley Matthews has been ruled out for the rest of the season after rupturing his Achilles in the Portland Trail Blazers' win over the Dallas Mavericks last night.
The shooting guard was helped off the court after suffering the injury without contact in the third quarter of the 94-75 win at the Moda Center.
The 28-year-old told ESPN: "It's disbelief, you know? I'm sitting up there in that tube having an MRI, and I don't hear noise, I don't feel my Achilles, I'm just, I can't believe I'm up there while my team's battling. I just haven't processed all of it yet.
"I've made that same cut hundreds of thousands of times in my life. I felt the initial pop, and I think you guys could tell on the replay, I looked back, and it feels like someone kicked you. I was praying that someone was back there. No-one was back there, and I heard Ron [Garretson], the ref, he actually says, 'Oh no' like he knew.
"I'm frustrated, man. I'm frustrated. They say everything happens for a reason, and I was thinking it, too. But what was the reason? I can't find it right now."
Matthews has made 173 three-pointers for the Blazers this season, the fourth-highest total in the league.
