Tuck May Also Miss Marquette

by Categorized: Geno Auriemma, Morgan Tuck, UConn women's basketball Date:

Freshman Morgan Tuck did not play in Wednesday’s win at Georgetown because of the recurrence of pain in her balky right knee. And according to Geno Auriemma, she should be considered questionable for Saturday’s Big East game at Marquette.

Auriemma said Wednesday that the Huskies, who are flying back to Connecticut today, will not practice Thursday once they return home. That means the medical staff will not have a good idea about how Tuck is doing until Friday, at the earliest.

“Last night we got back to the hotel and I got a message from [athletic trainer] Rosemary [Ragle] saying Morgan is a  no-go for [Georgetown],’’ Auriemma said. “Now she’ had a day to rehab and she usually bounces back pretty good [when she does]. Hopefully she’ll be ready to go on Saturday.’’

Auriemma was looking forward to having all four posts – Tuck. Stef Dolson, Breanna Stewart and Kiah Stokes – together for the first time in a very long time.

Stokes returned Wednesday after missing five games with a stress reaction in her lower right leg

    Balky does not define the problem. Arthritic? Bruised muscles? Torn ligaments?
    Arthritic–Play it’s always going to hurt. Bruised? Play it will work through it.
    Torn Ligament –surgery.
    So unless she is faking–or it’s very serious–get her in the game and work through the pain.

    I too hope she feels better but it sounds like she has blood in the joint. She might need it to be drained? Who knows you can’t get any real info from UConn coaches/staff/players

      Is that like a Hemotoma?? Blood in the joint by it’s self does not cause pain. If truly blood is present,then there is a more severe issue. A blood vessel is ruptured or a kin to that.
      The old “water in a joint” is now called fluid in the joint caused by damage in that area–that will cause swelling and it may or may not be drained.
