There has been a lot of questions asked about Scott Wood's apparent exit from the Indiana/Kentucky All-Star game this past weekend. Well, we're here to bring you the news right from Scott himself. According to Wood, he twisted his knee in that game and was forced to leave. While Scott assured us that he "felt fine" and is walking around, he still has a slight limp. The doctor that examined Wood told him that he did not tear any major ligaments, nor did he do any serious damage to his knee. What may have happened, according to the doctor, is that there may be some strained or slightly torn small ligaments or cartilage. So what does this mean? "They told me that I need to rest it for 3-4 weeks. The worst case scenario would be that I have to get arthroscopic surgery. Even then I'll only be out (of basketball activities) for about 3 to 4 weeks." Said Wood.
Scott was planning on resting up these next two weeks before heading to NC State on the 28th to join the team and to enroll in summer school. If the worst case scenario is the one he faces, he'll only miss 2 weeks of time with the team in Raleigh. If in fact Scott does need arthroscopic surgery, he'll come to Raleigh immediately and get all the work done here.
We will have more updates as they are available, and let you know how the MRI turns out when Scott gets it back.
