Former Indiana Pacers second-round pick, Magnum Rolle was waived yesterday by the D-League Maine Red Claws due to a knee injury that will sideline Magnum PF indefinitely, according to a report from Scott Schroeder.
Another bump in the road for Rolle who the Pacers were forced to release at the end of training camp. Fortunately, it doesn't appear like the knee injury is major nor will finish Rolle's season. With the slim margins that D-League teams operate under, they can't afford to pay and stash an injured player. The Red Claws do maintain Rolle's rights and it sounds like they look forward to welcoming him back when the knee is right.
"Magnum has quickly become a fan favorite in his short time in Maine, and we know Red Claws fans wish him well and look forward to his return." Red Claws President and General Manager Jon Jennings said in a statement. "We are pleased to welcome Jordan to our team. He is a very skilled player and gives us needed size due to all of our injuries."
Magnum PF can endear himself to fans that's for sure. Rolle averaged 7.5 points, 3.5 rebounds 3.5 blocks in Maine's first two games. Hopefully he'll be back on the court soon.
