EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -Los Angeles Clippers forward Elton Brand ruptured his left Achilles' tendon on Friday during his daily workout.
Brand, 28, will undergo surgery but plans for the operation have not been finalized yet, the Clippers said.
Last month, Brand - a veteran of eight NBA seasons - withdrew from the U.S. national team because of an injury. He averaged 20.5 points and 9.3 rebounds last season, when the Clippers failed to make the playoffs.
