I remember when Richard Mudd sprained his ankle.
Please don't speculate
ESPN is reporting that he's out at least 2 weeks. It's on the bottom line.
Don't forget Rashi Johnson had a bullet taken out of his leg or something like that.
This is going to be a LOOOOOONG wait and the subject of countless internet message board expert diagnoses.
Pretty sure that's just based off Izzo's quote of "Best case scenario it's a sprain and he's out a couple weeks."
MRI coming up this afternoon.
That's just based on Izzo's comments from last night.
Rexrode: "Pressed on the matter, Izzo said Harris -- who took a hard hit on a pick that Izzo said was illegal -- will be out a couple of weeks with a sprain in the best-case scenario."
If he us going to miss two weeks these might be the best two weeks to miss.
I hate this shit. Really think this can be a very good team with Gary. Probably still a solid squad without him if Byrd and Kearney improve, though.
Please just be a 4-6 week injury.
Without question. Just hope it's only a couple weeks. If there is a bright side to this, it's that Harris seemed to already be there mentally and physically. Some of the other guys who need to work on their game will see a lot of minutes they otherwise wouldn't have.
I've seen this mentioned a couple times but its still confusing to me as well...if it was a very serious injury, why is he not in a sling at all? Just curious, obviously I don't have a background in medicine, but it would seem if it were a very bad injury he'd have a sling on to protect it.

Agreed. Only competition in the next month is @Miami who looks a little shaky. Let him and Trice recover fully before chancing anything and see who steps up in their absence.
Is it wrong that I am sitting in silence, praying to patron St. Sebastian for good news on Gary Harris?
I know people become drama queens during situations like this, but I don't think it's overstating things to say GH is the difference between a Final Four ceiling and a Sweet 16 ceiling. This team just won't be able to score enough or play good enough D without him to go real deep. Byrd and Kearney aren't going to combine for 20 ppg, and the former is a defensive liability whereas Izzo has said GH is one of the best freshmen defenders he's ever had.
As long as the appropriate ritualistic sacrifices are being performed, I have no problem with this.
I am optimistic. It didn't look like a bad injury to me, and he wasn't in a sling, he even was warming up after half time some.
It just didn't look that serious, I hope I am not wrong.
This is me in a nut shell right now:
Brother to the most annoying undergrad poster....sorry;
Love you Pelon
C'mon Gary, we're pulling for you!
Did anyone else see him moving his arm around on the bench after he came back. I doubt he'd be doing that if it were that serious....right?

Countdown to the first "My cousin's best friend's girlfriend works at Sparrow and helped Gary with his MRI. It's not good news." post...

I was there and my seats are directly across from the bench. I was keeping a close eye on Harris while he sat on the bench. The guy was in obvious pain whenever he tried moving his left arm. A few times his face would distort when he tried moving the arm. When he stood up during TO's his left shoulder would hang much lower than his right shoulder and his left arm was always kept close to his side. Did not look good...
Not to say it's the same, but I had a pretty serious shoulder injury a couple year ago and getting around wasn't an issue. The issue was moving the shoulder itself in certain situations.
This country was built by people who worked hard then went home and had just a few too many every night. Then went back to work.
Yeah I honestly thought he was going to come back in the game the way he was moving it.
And the most injury-snake-bit school in America continues its impressive Schlepprock run.
One thing that last night made very clear is that we're a very different team without Harris. It's his non-shooting shoulder, right?
