Injured Cal guard Justin Cobbs expects to be healthy for season
Justin Cobbs, Cal's leading returning scorer, injured his right foot in August -- but he should be healthy for the start of the season.
California’s finish to the 2012-13 season sparked plenty of optimism going forward for the Golden Bears. They won seven in a row down the stretch to lock up an NCAA tournament bid, then knocked off UNLV in the Round of 64.
While Crabbe is obviously in the professional ranks now, it looks like Cobbs is on track to be ready for the season.
“Everything’s feeling good,” Cobbs told Bear Talk Blog last week. “Just taking my time.
“I feel really good about it. I’m not worried. Just stay healthy and stay focused. I should be back 100 percent.”
Cobbs, a 6-foot-3 senior from Los Angeles, averaged 15.1 points and 4.8 assists last season. With Crabbe gone, expect him to take on an even bigger role on the perimeter. This time around, he will team up with sophomore Tyrone Wallace and incoming freshman Jabari Bird in what could be an explosive backcourt group.
Cal opens the season Nov. 8 at home against Coppin State.
