    On Cockytalk they are calling it a minor sprain.

    It would be a very severe sprain (i.e. torn ligaments) if it wasn't sufficiently healed in five weeks.

    But South Carolina really needs Wilson for their Jan. 23 game vs. Mississippi State, IMO.

    If SC is smart, they will rest Wilson for two weeks to let the ankle properly heal. Bring her back slowly. Anybody who has sprained an ankle knows not to rush it on coming back.

    They need her down the stretch and during tournament time.

    Damn, if it isn't shin splints it's this. Get well soon A'ja. WCBB needs you. Ankle sprains can be chronic and long lasting. Please Dawn, let her sit for at least 2 weeks. I would think three. It's all about the Dance, not the conference.
