Foot injury to sideline Sonics' Brunson two months

SEATTLE -- Seattle SuperSonics guard Rick Brunson is
expected to be sidelined at least two months because of a foot
injury.

Brunson, bothered by plantar fasciitis all season, tore the
fascia in his left foot during practice Monday. He said he was
making a move during a one-on-on drill and heard something in his
foot pop.

"I tried to come back and see how I felt with some type of
pain. When I tore it that was it," Brunson, wearing a protective
boot and using a crutch, said Tuesday. "I've never had to sit out
a long period of time. It's frustrating because I wanted to bring
something to this team."
