Fox To Undergo Meniscus Surgery
Jan. 2, 2004
SPOKANE, Wash. - Gonzaga University's injury report didn't get any better with the New Year.
Skinner, a senior from Albuquerque, NM, suffered a broken third metacarpal in his right hand three minutes into the New Year's Eve contest. His hand is splinted and it will be three weeks before his status is known for the remainder of the season.
"He'll be re-evaluated in three weeks and we'll know more then," Gonzaga head trainer Steve DeLong said Friday.
Fox, a senior from Denver, Colo., who has been playing with an injured meniscus in his right knee, was to undergo arthroscopic surgery late Friday evening. His status for the remainder of the season depends on what the surgery uncovered.
"We've been trying to rehabilitate him with therapy, but he re-injured the knee on Wednesday," DeLong said. "The MRI was inconclusive. There is trauma to the meniscus and the scope will reveal if there is a tear. He could be out for anywhere from two weeks to the rest of the year depending on what has to be done to repair the meniscus."
Sophomore Erroll Knight or freshman Adam Morrison will start in place of Skinner when the Bulldogs host the University of Montana at 5 p.m. Sunday in a sold out Kennel. The game will be televised on KHQ-TV. Redshirt freshman Sean Mallon will be called on to help pick up the slack in Fox' absence.
"These are two senior leaders who will be missed," head coach Mark Few said. "We have great depth, now it is time to prove it."
