Nice depth at the point. What we really need, though, is some more size up front.
Jeter staying next year. That helps tremendously. That being said, I still think we need one more power forward or center.
It’s official. Brandon Williams is done for the year, maybe longer.
Whoa... what happened?
He has had a degenerative condition in his knee since high school. Had surgery. Potential that this is career-ending. Family is exhausting all options before making that determination.
Wow... feel bad for the kid..
It’s a big loss but the alternative was him playing at 60-ish% and probably missing several games at a time. On a personal level it’s really sucks because he probably had pro potential down the line and would’ve had a great college career without this condition.
Nico and Josh have to be Bayless/Gordon-level freshman for this team to be a threat.
Williams missed his entire junior season of high school after having knee surgery to correct a congenital knee condition called osteochondritis dissecans, in which bone underneath the cartilage of a joint dies due to lack of blood flow.
Got that from a UA site. FIrst I've seen it spelled out exactly what was up with the knee, I guess they found it after the ACL tear. Edit apparently it's not actually official he did have an ACL tear they never really confirmed what injury he had in HS people just assumed ACL because he missed a full season. So that may have been the problem in HS too.
Really bad break and now the potential retirement rumors make sense. Hope the kid is able to play again
Bummed for the young man.
Hope he’s smart and makes the most out of his education.
