COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Gamecock men's basketball coach Darrin Horn on Thursday released an injury update for three of his players.
Following a re-evaluation by the South
Carolina medical staff, sophomore forward Damontre Harris is expected to miss
four weeks with a right big toe sprain. The injury
occurred during a conditioning session on September 30.
Redshirt-senior forward Malik Cooke was also evaluated by
the medical staff, and is fully cleared for all basketball-related
activities. Cooke suffered a right ankle
dislocation in a pick-up game on June 21.
Additionally, junior forward Lakeem Jackson has also been
fully cleared for the start of practice.
Jackson underwent surgery earlier this year for a left foot injury that
hampered him throughout the later part of the 2010-11 season.
South Carolina begins official practice for the 2011-12
season next Friday, Oct. 14.
