Thunder lose backup PG Maynor for season

Oklahoma City Thunder backup point guard
Eric Maynor will miss the rest of the season after tearing the
anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
General manager Sam Presti said tests Sunday morning revealed
that Maynor had torn the ligament in the fourth quarter of Oklahoma
City's 98-95 victory at Houston on Saturday night.
Maynor is the primary backup to All-Star Russell Westbrook and
was averaging 4.2 points and 2.4 assists in 15 minutes per game
this season.
Presti says Maynor will need surgery on his knee but he is
confident Maynor "will do everything necessary to come back from
this injury and be prepared for the 2012-13 season."
The Thunder have two other reserve point guards, Royal Ivey and
rookie Reggie Jackson.
