The Huskies were back on campus Sunday, and two of their injured players received more treatment and evaluation.
Niels Giffey had a new set of X-Rays on his index finger and they confirmed he has a fracture. He will see an orthopedic specialist to determine the best course of action. If the finger has to be completely immobilized, one imagines, he will not be able to play in these final two games, but UConn was not ready to make that determination yet.
Shabazz Napier was in for more treatment on his right foot. Napier, who missed Saturday’s game at Cincinnati, the first game he has missed since coming to UConn (102 in a row), hopes to get back on the court and play at South Florida on Wednesday night. That would have to be considered questionable at this point. He is still in a walking boot.
The Huskies did not practice on Sunday, but get back to work Monday.
