Turiaf Treated For Stress Fracture

Sept. 30, 2003

SPOKANE, Wash. - Gonzaga University junior men's basketball forward Ronny Turiaf has been placed in a walking cast for his right ankle to help heal a stress fracture.

Bulldog trainer Steve DeLong said Turiaf will be sidelined approximately three weeks. It is not known if he will be ready for the start of basketball practice on Oct. 18.

Turiaf averaged 15.6 ppg and 6.8 rpg last season for the 24-9 Bulldogs.

DeLong said the injury is not related to the in-season ankle sprain Turiaf suffered last season that required off-season surgery to tighten the ankle ligaments.

"It's the same ankle but a different injury," DeLong said.
