Report: Indiana forward Will Sheehey suffers ankle sprain

Louisville’s Montrezl Harrell isn’t the only player who will sit out the rest of Adidas Nations with an injury.

According to reports, Indiana forward Will Sheehey was in a collision with Kansas freshman Joel Embiid and needed two people to help him off the floor. What initially looked like a painful injury turned out to be nothing more than a moderate ankle sprain, according to Jeff Rabjohns of Indiana’s site.

Jonathan Givony of was on the scene and was able to get a couple minutes with Sheehey:

A healthy Sheehey is a huge key for Indiana this season. The Hoosiers lost Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo to the NBA draft, while Christian Watford and Jordan Hulls used up their eligibility. That leaves Sheehey, the team’s sixth man, as the leading returning scorer – at 9.5 per game. He could be poised for a breakout season, as he will be one of the go-to-guys for the Hoosiers on the offensive end.
