Blair, Lawson, & Carroll Red-flagged For Injuries + Notes

According to ESPN's Chad Ford, it looks like bad times for some of the Pacer's potential draft targets.

Foremost among the troubles is many Indy Cornrows' members favorite target, DeJuan Blair.  Apparently during combine medical testing both Blair's knees are so bad some have described it is "devastating," and at the mildest "troubling."  He tore both ACLs in high school.  The last notable big guy to have to knees red-flagged is probably Greg Oden.  Yeah...  Ty Lawson (toe) and Missouri's DeMarre Carroll (unspecified) have also been red-flagged.

In other disappointing news, Gonzaga PF/C Josh Heytvelt apparently looked "awful" and "disinterested" and fellow Zag (and current ESPN.com mock draft pick for Indy) Austin Daye has looked terrible in scrimmages (and weighed in at less than Lawson and Flynn; about 30 lbs. less than Durrant coming out.)

Oh and apparently we're looking at Tyler Hansbrough as a possiblity at 13 now because he had crazy athletic numbers at the combine.  This of course is dumb because he NEVER looked athletic in-game and routinely got schooled anytime he had to face an elite big in college.


Gah...this draft is looking bleak.
