Scott Wood Injured, Not Severe


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.

    A torn ligament coulda been a good thing; he coulda gotten a Cheetah ACL or cougar MCL or something cool. Oh well

    I hope this isn't to serious. We've had enough knee problems over the past few years. Hopefully our luck will change soon.

    I witnessed the injury and if it is as reported...he is a very lucky man because it looked nasty. The crowd reacted when he went down. After a few minutes he tried to get up and the knee gave out and he went down again and was carried off the floor.

    I'm glad the kid is okay because it could have been much worse which would have been ashame.

    Good luck to Scott

    ^
    We simply reported what Scott told us. He'll have the MRI back soon and said he will let us know the outcome. He seemed very optimistic and said he was feeling fine.

    When should we expect MRI results? Worse Case scenario its a tear and we get him to Raleigh and let our doctors to do the surgery to fix the problem and he rests and rehabs the 6 weeks on campus under coaches watchful eye.... Atleast its now early enough so it can be taken care of early enough before the season.

    NOTE TO ALL RECRUITS.... STAY HEALTHY STOP GETTING HURT PLEASSEEE!!

    ^ No surgery for Wood. Looks like it'll just be rehab and rest.

    Sorry Scott. If you would have signed with ANY other school this would have never happened.

    Great news!!! Surgery would have been bad for numerous reasons, but the fact that he can rest up and still be on campus like previously scheduled is crutial. We really dodged a bullet with this one!! I really believe Sid has high expectations for Scott this year. I heave heard him several times this offseason in interviews bring up scotts name multiple times which tells me you wouldnt talk about a player if you didnt expect him to log important mins. Scott will still beable to get in the gym and work his upper body and hopefully he has some tapes of the ACC last year to study while lounging around!! Get well soon Scott!!!
