Vanderbilt’s Darius Garland Suffers Knee Injury

One of the SEC’s brightest young stars has suffered a significant injury.

Vanderbilt point guard Darius Garland injured his left leg two minutes into the game against Kent State. Without Garland, the Commodores fell 77-75.  The school announced Garland suffered meniscus injury and is out indefinitely.

Vanderbilt provided no further details, but typical recovery from a meniscus injury is six to eight weeks.  That could vary based on Garland’s draft stock.

A five-star McDonald’s All-American from Nashville, Garland scored 33 points earlier in the week.  Before the injury Garland was a projected lottery pick and averaged 16.2 points per game.

Kentucky hosts Vanderbilt at Rupp Arena on January 12.

    He is arguably one of the top five point guards in America. Hope he makes a quick and full recovery, ideally a couple days after the Kentucky game

    His recovery time will vary depending on his draft stock? So do potential NBA lottery picks project to heal faster or slower than walk ons? Uhhh what?

      Think it means, as a potential lottery pick, he may decide not to return to college ball.

      Meaning he’s a projected lottery pick so he’s more than likely going to take his time if he does come back at all

      You’re all right. I don’t know what I think about it personally. I’m sure if I was a projected first round draft pick, and had a injury like that, i would have to have a serious discussion with the family. That kid is a warrior though so I bet anything he plays the very first day they clear him. Also, that is why he will move up the draft board. I sure hope the best for him and praying for a quick recovery. Good luck Darius.
