Breakers put Webster on ice - Dec 13, 2016

Corey
Webster
Mystery cloaks the New Zealand Breakers' surprise decision to shut down errant shooting guard Corey Webster (188-G-88, college: Lambuth) for what might be the remainder of the Australian NBL season.

The club announced on Wednesday that Webster had been placed on injury waiver for the "medium to long term" to enable him to deal with multiple afflictions and that they were looking to replace him with an import as soon as possible.

But Webster's absence is effective immediately, meaning he will miss Thursday night's final pre-Christmas hitout against fellow 2015-16 grand finalists the Perth Wildcats at Vector Arena. That leaves the 7-9 Breakers seriously shorthanded in a game they're desperate to win after dropping five of their last six to fall dangerously off the pace in a tight league.

It's an interesting call to sideline Webster now, especially with coach Paul Henare admitting it was a decision made solely by the club. There was no clear explanation given as to why Webster couldn't suit up for this Wildcats game, given as he'd played through his "niggling" injuries up to this point.

Webster has had a subdued role in 2016-17 following the Breakers' off-season acquisition of Kirk Penney. In 15 games, mostly off the bench, Webster has averaged 11.7 points per game, over eight points down from his career-high 19.9 points per game in 2015-16.

Adding to the intrigue is the Webster's court appearance next week (December 20) on an assault charge as the result of an incident in a Takapuna nightspot on his birthday in late November. Webster has told the club he is innocent and vowed that "the truth will come out". Head coach Paul Henare said Webster's off-court issues had nothing to do with the decision.

The club will seek a replacement for Webster, and such are the qualities he brings to the team, that search is for an import player. The ideal timeline for such a player to join the team would be for the round 12 clash in Sydney on December 30.
