Wood Has Slightly Torn MCL, No Surgery Required


We reported the other night that Scott Wood had injured his knee during an All-Star game last weekend. Scott informed us two nights ago that he "felt fine" even though he was still "limping around a bit." The doctors told him the other day that they didn't believe that he had any major structural damage in his knee, but they would have to wait for the results of the MRI. Scott sent us a text today and let us know that the MRI results showed that he has a partially torn MCL, but surgery will not be required. Three to four weeks of rest is the recipe that the doctor ordered. Scott will still report with a majority of the '09 class on June 28th. This is great news for Scott and for the Pack.

    I'm glad to hear that. Get well soon Scott.

    BTW, I just read the CJ Leslie interview on highschoolhoop.com and wasn't to pleased. What have they got against nc state? I don't think I'll be visiting that site anymore.

    Oh yea, we want players that want to play for state and are not big headed and full of themselves.

    i think everyone's getting a little too worked-up over that Leslie interview. the interviewer definitely baited him. sure, it's disapointing that he decommited, but he's a 17-yr old kid (or maybe younger). he seemed to be all about state earlier, but it was silly of him to commit so early in the first place, particularly if he wasn't 100% sure. but he's a great athlete and he's getting a lot of attention, from a lot of directions. it has to be a tough position to be in. don't be too hard on the kid!

    and great news about scott! rest-up, and come back stronger!

    So when CJ was asked about his list he said "I can tell you Kentucky’s gonna be up there. I’m pretty sure that Carolina will be up there. The Gators will probably be up there too. That’s it for right now. I would say those three will definitely be on the list."

    He aren't even mentioned? Seriously?! Have we fallen that far?

    FANTASTIC NEWS!!! This is so important for him to get on campus with his teammates and start forming the bonds necessary to create unity. You cant win without unity. This is also important because as a jump shooter he will need to have full motion on his knee. 3 weeks rest would do alot of our recruits before they hit Raleigh Hard and give it everything they have until first day of tip off.

    Forget Cj leslie we dont need him. 6'7 185 if he dont add weight he going to get beasted in any conference he plays in. Rivals.com had him at a 5-star then dropped him 2 a 4-star. I cant understand if you had the number 1 pg and 4 pf how you lose 11 games in high school.

    Come on now, this is just getting silly. Leslie is a great player and will probably make a big impact wherever he goes. I'm disapointed that he decomitted, but he's a kid. Stop the hating!

    Oh, and this is comforting about Scott. Take care of yourself, you've already got a lot of fans here anxiously awaiting your arrival!

    I'm not bothered in the least bit about CJ decommitting, however, I am disturbed about the leading questions off that interview, and more so that CJ took the bait and added insult to injury.

    Personally, I do not feel we should be recruiting someone who would is saying detrimental things about our program. I'm sure he'll be a great player somewhere, but now that those comments are on record, I just hope it isn't for State.

    I am extremely excited about the players we have coming in, esp Wood and Harrow and hope that we focus our energy on Cothran and Parker. I want us to get the guys, as Lowe said yesterday, who want to go somewhere that they can make a name for themselves, to become legends!

    GO PACK!

    A slightly torn meniscus cartilage ligament is completely foreign to me. All I know is that the work ethic and desire portrayed in this young man is far to great for this injury to slow his progress.

    My guess is that Scott Wood is just the type of student-athlete that turns this into a positive. At the very least in the next four years to come he will turn this experience into something he can use to help other teamates work through the adversity. Most likely he will use the time to bulk up in the weight room w/o adding unnecessary stress to the knee.

    ps If Scott or a relative is reading, get into the pool and do....well just about anything. You can do more kinds of resistance training in the pool w/o harming then healing process then any other exercise.
