Josh Gray Injury Update

Starting point guard Josh Gray left the second half of LSU's win Saturday night with a right ankle injury. TSD's Ben Love has the latest news on Gray and the severity of his injury inside.

I swapped texts late Monday morning with a team source very familiar with the situation and got an update on starting point guard Josh Gray's ankle injury. All indications at this point are that he's going to be okay long-term and that Tiger fans can start to exhale.

The exact text: "(He's) feeling much better didn't tear or break anything just a bad sprain"

Gray left the Sam Houston State game Saturday night three and a half minutes into the second half. The hobbled perimeter player was examined on the bench after rolling his right ankle and then was helped back to the locker room, where he remained for the duration of the Tigers' 76-67 win.

In his stead sophomore Tim Quarterman manned the point for most of the second half while freshman Jalyn Patterson also pitched in some minutes at the one. Head coach Johnny Jones has said that will be the continued order of Gray replacements in the event the JuCo transfer would be out for a stretch of time.

But this latest update seems to indicate Gray will be back and ready for LSU's SEC opener at Missouri on Jan. 8, if not sooner.
