Glen Oak junior power forward Kosta Koufos is going to miss some time. He fractured the 5th metatarsal on his foot. "It could be worse," Koufos said.
How long he'll be out will be determined this week at a doctor's visit. "This Wednesday I'm going to the clinic. My foot feels fine right now and I took the whole weekend off. On Wednesday they're going to give me an opinion – rest would be a conservative way (to treat the injury) or there's a chance they could put a pin in it. In a way surgery could be beneficial because my foot would be stronger than it was before."
Koufos was having a big season at 24 points and 13.5 rebounds a game. "It's really frustrating but if you're down it's going to bring you down even more. I have to be positive and I'm just supporting the team."
Koufos said that despite the rash of early commitments from players in his class hasn't influenced him one bit. "Good for them," Koufos said of his peers who have committed. "They're going to have a bright future ahead of them.
"I'm not in any rush."
