Agent Zero says “People who usually have microfracture are usually big players who get off the floor. I don’t jump, I don’t get off the floor.” I dunno, I’m pretty sure he does jump:

It is true that these knee problems are normally associated with big men, but when you get down to it it seems like it’s probably a bigger problem for a perimeter player. A tall guy with skills can be valuable to his team even if he’s a bit slow and doesn’t jump very well. A guy like Arenas, however, really depends on his quickness to make plays.
