Louisville announced today that Gorgui Dieng will undergo surgery tomorrow on his fractured wrist and he’s expect to miss 4-6 weeks of game action.
“With a little luck, he’ll be back for the start of the Big East schedule,” Rick Pitino said of the wrist injury Dieng suffered Friday. That means Louisville’s starting center will likely be out for the Kentucky game on December 29, or at least that’s what Rick wants you to think. The UK/Louisville game is five weeks away.
No one loves to see Louisville suffer more than us here at KSR, but you never want to see a guy go down to injury, especially one who seems to be a class act like Gorgui. He has a promising basketball career ahead of him and he’s the centerpiece of what should be a great year for Louisville.
The Louisville injuries continue.
