Shabazz Napier, who left the Puerto Rico national team due to a right foot injury, is going to be wearing a walking boot for about six weeks.
UConn’s medical staff says the injury is symptomatic discomfort in that foot. It’s the same foot, but not necessarily the same injury that hampered Napier last season. He is home in Boston now, wearing the boot to relieve pressure on the foot. He is expected back on campus next week for the second session of summer courses.
