Another Day Of Rest, Treatment, Evaluation for Injured Huskies

by Categorized: Niels Giffey, Shabazz Napier, UConn men's basketball

No practice Monday for the UConn men’s basketball team – remember, they have to take two days off per week – and no change in the status of injured players Shabazz Napier and Niels Giffey.

Napier, still in the walking boot on his right foot, is getting treatment. Giffey has the fractured right index finger and UConn is still deciding how to treat it.

The Huskies will return to practice on Tuesday morning at Gampel, then take a mid-day flight to Tampa. They play at South Florida, Wednesday night at 9 .m.

I spent the day over at Lakeland watching former Huskies baseball star George Springer, who is playing for the Astros. Look for that story on our main website and in the Tuesday Courant.

And remember, the live chat will go on as usual, Thursday at 10:45 a.m.
