Wesley Matthews, who has helped the Portland Trail Blazers become a title threat, will miss the remainder of the NBA season with a ruptured left Achilles tendon, the team announced Friday. Matthews, a six-year NBA veteran, limped off the court with assistance and an MRI after the game revealed the extent of his injury. Matthews has averaged 15.9 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 60 games for the Trail Blazers, joining backcourt partner Damian Lillard and forward LaMarcus Aldridge in topping Portland's scoring leaders.
