You’ll be about to read about this topic in much greater detail in tomorrow’s print edition. But why wait to address some of the nuggets coming out of this afternoon’s interview with Alabama freshman basketball player Trevor Lacey?
The crown jewel of coach Anthony Grant’s marquee signing class had surgery on an injured knee this summer.
We knew that.
But Lacey said today it was a torn lateral meniscus that was causing the trouble.
He thinks the injury as suffered in a Christmas tournament played his senior season. It went undiagnosed and he played through the pain.
The surgeon’s knife didn’t meet Lacey’ knee until the summer and serious rehabilitation didn’t begin until he arrived on campus in August, he said.
“I don’t think I did any rehab after surgery,” Lacey said. “I just laid around until I got to school.”
He’s feeling significantly better in recent weeks and has started each of the last six Alabama games. That number should hit seven when Vanderbilt comes to Coleman Coliseum at 6 p.m., Thursday.
Again, read more about this tomorrow.
