Sam Amick of the Sacramento Bee in his blog is reporting that Mike Bibby will have surgery to repair the torn ligament in his non-shooting thumb. Also reported is that according to Kings coach Reggie Theus, this is the worst-case scenario for the Kings and Mike as a result will miss at least 10 weeks now because of the surgery.
I for one would prefer to have the Kings to try to stem the tide with Quincy Douby as the Kings starting point guard on opening night. Quincy has a lot to learn and why not use the regular season to do so. The Kings were going to win 35 games at best with Bibby anyways. If Douby fails, we could always play for a high lottery pick and pick up Derrick Rose or OJ Mayo.
