Pitt point guard Tray Woodall came back from injury in Pitt's game this week against Notre Dame, but Ray Fittipaldo of the Post-Gazette has word that he's still suffering - so much so that he's not practiced again since that game:
Pitt coach Jamie Dixon said today that junior point guard Tray Woodall has not practiced since the Notre Dame game and his status for the game against Cincinnati is questionable. Woodall is recovering from an abdominal tear and played 20 minutes in the 72-59 loss to the Fighting Irish Tuesday night.
"He's not recovering well from the other day," Dixon said. "You guys could see he wasn't at top speed. That's where he's at. He hasn't practiced since."
Another player who is also apparently injured is senior guard Ashton Gibbs. Gibbs' struggles shooting the ball this season have been well documented and if he is injured, that could be a reason we're seeing an entirely different Gibbs than we saw last season.
If either or both are out for Pitt's game against Cincinnati on Sunday, the team could be facing an uphill battle. For more on Pitt basketball and the injuries to Woodall and Gibbs, check out SB Nation's Pitt blog Cardiac Hill.
