DALLAS, Texas — Oklahoma senior guard Ebi Ere is questionable for the Sooners' quarterfinal game on Friday in the Big 12 Tournament after breaking a bone in his left wrist.
Sources tell OUInsider.com that Ere's wrist was placed in a cast Tuesday night and will not be taken off until Saturday. Should the Sooners advance to the semi-finals on Saturday, OU trainers would remove the cast and Ere would test the wrist in practice to see if he can play with the pain.
"We're still two days away so who knows," said Oklahoma Head Coach Kelvin Sampson late Wednesday night. "If we played today I would say there is no way he could go."
Sampson has yet to confirm that Ere will not play Friday night.
Ere, who injured the wrist while bracing for a fall after grabbing a rebound during practice on Tuesday, is the Sooners' third-leading scorer with an average of 13.6 points per game.
Injury could force Ere out of Big 12 Tournament
