UConn offered an update on Shabazz Napier and his shoulder injury this morning.
Napier, who has been fighting a contusion of his left shoulder since Jan. 14, was held out of practice on Sunday to rest it. He played 34 minutes at Pitt last Saturday, hitting 2 of 7 shots from the floor, scoring eight points with two assists and two turnovers.
The Huskies are off Monday and Tuesday, so the hope is, with three consecutive days off, Napier’s shoulder will be better healed to resume practice on Wednesday. UConn plays Rutgers at the XL Center on Sunday at 2 p.m.
The school is offering single game tickets for the Syracuse game at XL on Feb. 13, noting “limited quantities” are available. Click here for more info on this and other upcoming events.
