Sonics' Wilcox out for rest of season with dislocated finger

Sonics' Wilcox out for rest of season with dislocated finger
SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle SuperSonics forward Chris Wilcox will miss the remainder of the season with a dislocated finger on his right hand.

Wilcox originally dislocated a joint on the little finger of his hand in a game at Phoenix on Jan. 3. He aggravated the injury against the Suns on March 19.

The five-year veteran appeared in 62 games this season, averaging 13.4 points and seven rebounds in 28 minutes per game. He is second on the team in scoring behind Kevin Durant.

"After gathering all of the necessary information, the decision has been made to rest the injury and allow for the proper recuperation and rehabilitation to avoid further damage," Sonics general manager Sam Presti said Thursday. "We are disappointed that we will be without Chris the remainder of the season, but look forward to having him back healthy next year."

Wilcox arrived in Seattle on Feb. 14, 2006, in a trade with the Los Angeles Clippers for Vladimir Radmanovic. He received a $24 million, three-year contract from the Sonics that summer.

His injury is the latest setback in a lost Sonics season.

Seattle (17-55) will have to win six of its final 10 games, now without its most consistent inside presence, to avoid the worst record in its history. The original Sonics from the 1967-68 season were 23-59.
