Sterling Gibbs' knee injury won't keep him out more than 2 weeks
The Texas transfer who leads the team in scoring will be out, but not for long. That's huge for the struggling, 7-4 Pirates.
Seton Hall is enduring yet another roster setback, but fortunately it looks like this one won't bleed into the new year.
The school -- and Sterling Gibbs, via his Twitter account -- announced Monday that Gibbs' right leg injury is nothing more than a hyperextended knee with some bruising. Gibbs, the former Texas guard who averages 16.1 points, was hurt near the end of SHU's game against Saint Peter's over the weekend.
It should be no more than two weeks, according to the school. The Star-Ledger reported on the news Monday night.
"Finally leaving the doctors office with good news! Nothing serious," Gibbs tweeted.
Seton Hall is 7-4 this season and is currently without starting guard Fuquan Edwin because of a sprained ankle. He'll be back soon. In the short-term, the team is also without forward Patrik Auda and center Aaron Geramipoor, as well as permanently without guard Tom Maayan last week, who had to leave for Israel over the weekend. Maayan has to fulfill military duty in his home country.
The Pirates' next game is Sunday at home against Eastern Washington.
