With about 10 minutes left in their win over Eastern Washington, Minnesota’s season almost took a turn for the terrible. Ralph Sampson took a charge, fell back against Paul Cater’s ankle, and Carter hit the deck in agony. He was down for several minutes, and was eventually carried off the court, unable to put any weight on his right ankle. It looked bad, very bad, but thankfully it was not.
According to Marcus Fuller, Carter is only day to day after what easily could have been a seson ending injury. His injury, diagnosed as an ankle sprain of undetermined severity (so far), should allow him to be back before the Louisville game. It will also give Devron Bostick a chance to get more playing time, and more confidence.
Lawrence Westbrook dressed but did not play last night as well, due to a shin injury. He should be 100% on Saturday.
I’ll have more on last night’s game either tonight or tomorrow depending on the turkey, but until then have a very happy Thanksgiving!
