Lanier suffered his ACL injury in the 1970 regional finals against Villanova while playing at St. Bonaventure. He still had the cast on his leg when he signed his rookie contract with Detroit after being the first pick overall in the NBA Draft - http://www.nba.com/history/players/lanier_bio.html

"Bauman offers the story of another of his clients, Jazz guard Raul Lopez, as a cautionary tale. The Spanish playmaker was drafted by Utah in '01 and was set to sign with the Jazz in the summer of '02. He had even just made a $1.6 million buyout to his club in Real Madrid. But while playing in an exhibition game for Spain's national team that summer, he tore his ACL for the second time in a year. With his Jazz deal not yet signed, he could have found himself in dire financial straits. Fortunately for Lopez, Utah signed him anyway and he was able to rehab the knee and eventually had a successful rookie season last year. When Spain came calling for Lopez this season, Bauman wasn't about to take any chances. "I told him, 'Your career is more important than playing in the Olympics.' I said, 'If you play, I'm prepared to resign as your agent.'" Lopez chose not to play for Spain this time around."

Arthur, a 6-9 reserve, had no previous problems with the right Achilles. He had just returned to practice Sunday after missing time with a sore left Achilles.
The injury happened while Arthur played defense against Randolph. Teammates initially thought that Arthur injured his ankle when he landed awkwardly.
The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has waived forward/guard Josh Howard after an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) revealed he has a torn ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) in his right knee. The injury, which will sideline him for the remainder of the season, occurred in the second quarter of the Friday, Dec. 14 contest at New Orleans.
“It’s unfortunate to see Josh’s season come to an abrupt end due to injury,” said David Kahn, Timberwolves President of Basketball Operations. “Due to several injuries, we have an immediate need at the wing position, necessitating today’s transaction. Josh was a consummate professional and important contributor to our team in his short time with us and we wish him the best with his recovery.”
Signed by the Wolves as a free agent on November 16, Howard averaged 6.7 points and 3.3 rebounds in 11 games this season for Minnesota.
Lou Williams, the Atlanta Hawks' third-leading scorer, will miss the remainder of the season with a right knee injury.
The Hawks announced before Saturday night's game against San Antonio that Williams tore the anterior cruciate ligament in the knee in Friday night's loss at Brooklyn. The tear was found when Williams was examined Saturday by Dr. Michael Bernot in Atlanta.
