 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Golden State Warriors guard Troy Hudson has visits scheduled with two medical specialists regarding a hip injury that could end his career.
In Minnesota for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves, Warriors coach Don Nelson was bluntly pessimistic about the prognosis for the 31-year-old Hudson.
``I think Troy is probably done,'' Nelson said. ``I don't think he'll play again.''
Hudson, who played five seasons with Minnesota before signing with Golden State in August, said he was anxious about the doctor appointments and bracing for the possibility of not being able to play again.
``It's going through my mind, because hips are serious things,'' Hudson said. ``You do a lot of side-to-side movement in this game.''
Hudson was more optimistic than his coach, though.
``Hopefully it's something where a few weeks of rest will be all I need,'' he said.
Hudson has appeared in only nine of Golden State's 25 games this season. He last appeared on Dec. 12 while scoring a season-high 10 points against Portland. The injury is a new one that began bothering him during training camp.
``It's tough, because you finally get in a situation that you want to be in, and you can't play,'' said Hudson, who had the remaining two years on his contract bought out by the Wolves for more than $12 million.
Three of his five seasons in Minnesota were marred by ankle injuries. The 3-point specialist has a career average of nine points per game. Hudson was at his best in 2002-03, when he averaged 14.2 points and 5.7 assists per game.
