I must say I had to laugh when I read about your resilient ankles! Was the rest of your body as resilient after falling down the flight of stares!
Looks that way!:cool:

On offense he should fine for Saturday. He mostly catches and shoots and does straight line drives. defense will be tougher but Clingan owes some cleanup

Do your thing BY.

Is it a rolled ankle? A sprain? A strain?
Lower leg injury? Ankle injury? Foot injury?
X-ray or MRI?
Ice? Heat? Rest? Walking boot? Knee scooter?
How should UConn treat this based on your own experiences? (Not your medical experience, your YMCA or intramural experience as a "player". )
What's the recovery timeline?
Discuss HIPAA.
These are college kids, not pros. Leave them alone.
Why is this the fault of Donny Marshall?
Tom started an entire forum for these type of discussions. BoneyardMD.

If you don't notice the white part of the picture and realize it's a sneaker, but rather just see the blue part??? That's a weird ass picture.
That’s 1900’s style basketball sneaker. Sneakers from this current era are basically Crocs with shoe laces.

A high ankle sprain is the biggest concern (takes weeks/months to completely heal), but he wouldnt have played if that was the case. Tape it real good, shoot-up for the pain, and no excuses for Saturday.

If in doubt, keep him him out.

It should still be a competitive game with or without Karaban. If we lose, we lose #1, which is not necessarily a bad thing. If we win, which is a definitely possibility, it means we got more playing time for guys who need it. Hash scored 1 point in our last game with the Storm. He might be able to pick

Huh? We only lost one game without Castle and we only lost one game without DC. If AK has to sit out on Saturday, why in the world would we be conceiving that game?
Poor choice of words. Not this game but being realistic(and preferring to win out) a loss is certain to come and the sooner the better. We probably need a Quality Control check for safe measure.

Rolled ankles are a birch.I know. In order of what I'd like to see happen tomorrow. AK plays limited minutes and contributes from long range (3s). Stewart gets some significant PT and delivers on his talents combined with AK limited minutes. Diarra has a career game in his hometown.

Above all. Where is the respect for AR? Give him 5 to 10 minutes so he can go off. Pitino isn't scouting him.

yes...it looked like the PC player was casually stepping into the vicinity but his right foot was stuck out further and was what Alex turned the ankle on
Watched it again and it was #10 Barron. He clearly sticks his right foot under Alex when he is coming down resulting in the ankle turn.
It didn’t look intentional…just looked like a freshman who didn’t realize how reckless that was
