    Update on Connor?

    First Post Banner
    Anyone have any news on whether McDougal will be suiting up tonight? Would love to see him be able to play, we need him for both rebounding and inside option on offense. Love to see Vlad's development from game to game and have always appreciated Joe's passion. But, could use Connor's skill set (minus to tendancy to foul).

    I think he’s still a week out from practicing. There was some pretty bad swelling at the Evansville game, so I don’t think it’s healed by now.

    I thought he would be back, but it sounds like this injury maybe has something to it that has not been found, or that it did more damage than has been indicated. I don't know, but I think we may not see CMac this year. If it is still that swollen, it seems he could still be a month out, and that is pretty far into the season.

    If that's the case, I don't know if he would want to stick around and medical redshirt. Hit a certain age and you may just be ready to move on. Or it could be the opposite, he may want to be a part of something next year and stick it out.

    I really hope it clears up soon -- we could use him -- but he will be pretty rusty at this point and would probably need 2-3 weeks to really reintegrate into the team. But I would love to see him dressed out and ready if it is a possibility. We need one more big, even if all we get out of him initially is 5 fouls and some good box-outs. I like Cmac a lot and I wish him the best and hope he pulls through this. The nagging injuries are the worst. It's gotta be driving him nuts.

    The announcers for that game said they saw his ankle and that it was "the size of a softball". That didn't sound good.

    Go look at Geoff Grammer Twitter. He mentions that they are worried that it could be a lingering injury. If Connor comes back for a game and re-injures it, his NCAA basketball career is done. They want to be sure he’s healthy if he is gonna play

    I hope Conner is ready soon. I also think it is his and the medical staff's full decision. He certainly would add to this team in an area that they need help. So therefore it makes sense that fans would like him back asap. Reports of it still being swollen signals to me that it is not ready now. I believe that Conner wants back on the floor as soon as the rest of us do, or sooner:-)

    Jumping to conclusions about his character/work ethic is what stirred the pot on the last thread. Truth is, we don't have much info and that opens up the speculation machine.

    Go Connor. Get well.

    Sorry, I didn't phrase that well. I didn't intend to imply that you were jumping to conclusions. Some folks did on the last thread about this and that's what I was referring to. I'd love him back too. The team needs it. With coach's statement as the only news we really have it does muddy the waters a little bit in having a clear understanding of where things stand with him.

    Keep in mind that the player Evansville was missing had been "cleared to play" and wanted to play (because the swelling had initially gone down)...and the end result is that he's now out for six weeks. I don't blame anyone involved for pumping the brakes in this case.

    What silence? Coach talked about it at his presser this week. What is he suposted to do? Make a comment about it every day to keep the impatient morons happy? We still have a month until conference. Some of you guys need to relax. If he still isn't playing in 3 weeks everything is on the table but he just got cleared this week.

    Does he even have another year of eligibility? He is listed as a senior on golobos so there is no saving for next year. He needs to get in the mix this year or he is wasted.

    Yes he has eligibility. No it will not be wasted if he sits out. He can still be saved for another season. He has not yet used a redshirt year and he has 5 years to play 4. So far he has played 3 seasons in 3 years. That means he can sit out and still play next season, regardless of him being a senior. He can be a redshirt senior next season.

    "IF" this would be a lingering injury or if he tries to go in practice and it won't go, maybe that might be the best course of action? Possibly get a masters that would solidify his career after basketball? Him and Dane would both be Sr's next year then. It would give us a legit big next year with experience as well.

    I guess we'll see what happens.

    Not fair to a guy to have him just throw away over 25% of his senior season. The smart thing to do now is to redshirt him and take the additional lumps on the interior this year. Even if he ends up grad transferring. My hope would be that he stays and we then have our starting center next season.

    It definitely seems like the best option at this point, but I won't question Connor or Weir if he decides to play this season. It is up to the player and then the coach.

    And compounding that is that he already threw away about 75% of a season at ASU.

    What’s puzzling is I’ve had many badly sprained ankles throughout my life and usually the bad ones clear up after 4-6 weeks if it was swollen last week then what’s the diagnosis? I’m not slamming anyone but a little update as to the actual problem would be nice aside from just saying it’s still swollen.

    having stayed at a holiday inn express a few times this year.................... i can recall over the years the statement that sometimes a high ankle sprain is worse than a broken ankle to deal with. How does this fan base not remember cullen neal sitting out an entire season?

    What is a high ankle sprain?

    Unlike other ankle sprains, this injury is sustained to the tissue (ligaments) that connect the tibia and the fibula. These are the bones that make up the lower leg (the inner bone being the tibia or shin and the outer being the fibula).
    With common ankle sprains “low ankle sprains” the ligaments that are most often injured are the ones on the outside of the ankle. These help to connect the fibula to the foot. These ligaments are injured when someone “rolls” their ankle over. Generally, recovery occurs over a period of 4 to 6 weeks. Most of us have sprained our ankle in this manner and as the swelling goes away, so does the pain. This isn’t to say that these ankle sprains aren’t serious, but in the majority of instances they resolve uneventfully – or at least we feel that they have.
    In the high ankle sprain, there are several structures potentially damaged. These include ligaments that connect the tibia to the fibula known as the tibfib ligaments, as well as a tissue called the interosseous membrane. The severity of this injury often depends on how many of these structures are damaged. The recovery time frame varies from 8 weeks to 6 months and this is why the high ankle sprain is so dreaded.

    In talking to one of Connor's friends at the UNM-CU game, he thought Connor would be back playing by the start of the MW conference games.

    Bingo! Those that think Connor is just "not tough enough" or not willing to "gut it out" for the team, are just flat a** full of it and need to stfu & try being a fan which means support not insult.

    What is a high ankle sprain?

    Unlike other ankle sprains, this injury is sustained to the tissue (ligaments) that connect the tibia and the fibula. These are the bones that make up the lower leg (the inner bone being the tibia or shin and the outer being the fibula).
    With common ankle sprains “low ankle sprains” the ligaments that are most often injured are the ones on the outside of the ankle. These help to connect the fibula to the foot. These ligaments are injured when someone “rolls” their ankle over. Generally, recovery occurs over a period of 4 to 6 weeks. Most of us have sprained our ankle in this manner and as the swelling goes away, so does the pain. This isn’t to say that these ankle sprains aren’t serious, but in the majority of instances they resolve uneventfully – or at least we feel that they have.
    In the high ankle sprain, there are several structures potentially damaged. These include ligaments that connect the tibia to the fibula known as the tibfib ligaments, as well as a tissue called the interosseous membrane. The severity of this injury often depends on how many of these structures are damaged. The recovery time frame varies from 8 weeks to 6 months and this is why the high ankle sprain is so dreaded.
    Bingo! Those that think Connor is just "not tough enough" or not willing to "gut it out" for the team, are just flat a** full of it and need to stfu & try being a fan which means support not insult.

    Hopefully some remember the posts from a few years ago of Connor doing his off season workouts. He busts his butt when he's healthy.
