Sheehey suffers minor ankle injury at Adidas Nations

Indiana senior swingman Will Sheehey suffered an ankle injury Sunday while working as one of the college counselors at the Adidas Nations event in Garden Grove, Calif. According to Jonathan Givony, who is covering the event for DraftExpress.com, Sheehey had to be helped off the floor by two players and appeared to be in significant pain.

A source said shortly after, however, that early indications are that the injury doesn’t appear to be quite as bad as the ankle injury Sheehey suffered during the 2011-12 season, when he missed five games, and there do not appear to be any broken bones involved.

UPDATE: Givony wrote on his Twitter account that he spoke to Sheehey and that Sheehey expects to be back in action in a week or two.

Fran Fraschilla mentioned that he was trying to “hammer in a dunk”. Also mentioned that his ankle isn’t so bad and that he had a headache…must have hit the floor pretty hard after the attempt.

I’m all for Will getting some meaningful experience this summer, knowing that he will be called upon to lead this team. By all accounts his confidence is growing. It sounds like this injury is minor (thank goodness) and he’ll be ready when practices start in October. One heck of an athlete, one heck of a competitor can’t wait to see him lead the ’13- ’14 Hoosiers.
