Former ASU standout Jeff Pendergraph of the Portland Trail Blazers has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
On his Twitter account, Pendergraph posted this message Friday afternoon: "Tough news today y'all, I'm out for the season with torn ACL."
He was expected to be the team's backup center, but injured his knee in a game Thursday against the Utah Jazz. The loss of Pendergraph leaves Portland with one healthy center, 14-year-veteran Marcus Camby. LaMarcus Aldridge is currently the only other Blazer taller than 6-10.
The Suns open their season Oct. 26 at Portland.
