I believe Kevin Brown was fine.
Dan Nelson, though, is out for a while, with a broken clavicle.
Hopefully Tim Warfield can return this week.
It's called linebacker musical chairs...
There is a situation in the family of Alfred Aboya, the 6-7 power forward from Cameroon, that has him very pre-occupied, and understandably.
It's delaying his decision.
Most close to the situation really don't have any idea when he could decide.
The signing period begins Wednesday, November 10th, and goes for a week. It's almost certain that Aboya will decide by then and not wait until spring.
In addition to Dijon Thompson's cut on his hand, I've heard that Cedric Bozeman, Brian Morrison and Josiah Johnson all have been a bit hindered in the last few days due to minor injuries.
But none of them are supposed to be anything serious.
Senior small forward Dijon Thompson cut his shooting hand in practice last Wednesday.
It required four stitches.
He will practice, but won't be able to shoot until the stitches are removed November 1st.
