Indiana says OG Anunoby “out indefinitely”

  • 12/01/2016 8:59 pm in

Indiana sophomore forward OG Anunoby will be out indefinitely after suffering a sprained ankle in Wednesday’s Big Ten-ACC Challenge win over North Carolina, the school announced Thursday night.

The 6-foot-8 sophomore scored a team-high 16 points in IU’s 76-67 win over the No. 3 Tar Heels, but had to leave the game after landing awkwardly after a dunk with 1:36 remaining in the game.

Anunoby, who is averaging 12.5 points and six rebounds per game, did not return after that play. Tom Crean said postgame that it was too early to gauge the severity of the injury.

Indiana hosts SIU-Edwardsville on Friday and Southeast Missouri State on Sunday at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.

    Yes OG is better than Caris but this team is a lot better and deeper then that Michigan team.

  • Yep, and the committee shouldn’t show sympathy–a team is what it is, and that includes who’s playing. So, OG, get better, dude, we miss you already!

    Darn Hippas and their long hair, reefer, loud music and dirty feet. Get off my lawn.

    This classic lyric sums up by message to OG. “Get well, get well soon, we want you to get well!”. (Song from Seinfeld, performed by Elaine’s co-workers)

    I can only break legs with my voodoo doll. I can’t mend them. LOL.

    His ankle clearly rolled when he landed. But whether or not the previous twisting made it more susceptible, I don’t know.

  • ForeverIU

    It’s my feeling too. I think we see him back in three or at most four games.

    Do you recall how long Will was out with his high sprain? I was trying to remember but it seemed like 6 plus weeks. They kept saying it was a game time decision but he was unable to go for quite a while.

    Google is your friend. LOL!
    The college athlete controls the info.

  • Ole Man

    OG is protected by HIPA or HIPPA or HIPAA or however it is spelled from having to release any info.
    You can lay it on CTC, but it really isn’t his call.

  • Ole Man

    Yes, your response does reek.
    Those other college athletes can do what they want.
    A simple Google search would show you that the college athlete is the final voice in the release of his info.
    CTC may advise him, however, it is not his decision.
    What happened in those other examples OBVIOUSLY shows that the athlete signed off on releasing the info.

    As they say, just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you.

    We will also not be dealing with JBJ’s best friend guarding him.

    I agree i have sprained my right, yep never left, 3 times. All high sprains twice real bad. Last time i did it it hurt so bad i was clawing chunks of grass out of the ground pulling myself along. They decided to put me in a cast for 2 months and it never happened again…..maybe the cast did it i don’t know.

  • Piker

    That was great

  • Hoosier89

    It says in the article it’s a sprained ankle. Consider the truth told.

  • Not to get into too much of a debate over nothing important, but the essence of HIPAA is that the individual should have control over his/her protected health information. HIPAA doesn’t say that IU can’t release the information, it says that IU can’t release the information without OG’s consent. I doubt OG simply withheld it.

    It’s very much CTC’s call as to how injury information is reported. And really, I don’t blame him for his caution, as much as it drives me nuts. It’s a bit of a darned if you do, darned if you don’t situation for him.

    It’s Priller time !!!!!


    OG will be back in just a couple games!!! Definitely back by the Butler game! !!!

    No, there’s always some pessimistic troll who comments something negative like that. In the worst case scenario such sprains CAN take 6 weeks or longer but that’s only for grade 3 plus the athlete’s age and whether or not they’re a quick healer. OG isn’t even 20 yet. In the NBA last year Harrison Barnes was out about 5 weeks because of the same injury, Jae Crowder, just over 2 weeks, even though he did say he indeed rushed back too soon and his overall effectiveness on the court was hampered by rushing back. James Harden on the other hand, came back in just two games and never skipped a beat. So let’s say for OG it will probably be somewhere in between. I personally think there’s a good chance he misses the Butler game. After Butler though IU’s schedule is soft up until Dec 31st when they play Louisville. I’d bet OG plays that game.

    Or a convent, you are guaranteed to get nun that way….but I digress. Go Hoosiers!
