De’Ron Davis out indefinitely with lower leg injury

  • 01/05/2018 1:55 pm in

Indiana sophomore De’Ron Davis is out indefinitely after suffering a lower leg injury in practice on Thursday, Archie Miller announced on Friday afternoon.

“It was a non contact injury. He’ll be out indefinitely until we have just a very 100 percent clear indication of what that is,” Miller said on Friday afternoon. “Obviously we’re moving forward as a group, and as we head to Minnesota, we know we have a heck of a challenge.”

Davis, a 6-foot-10 center from Overland (Colo.), is averaging 9.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 18.8 minutes per game this season.

A four-star recruit out of high school, Davis signed with the Hoosiers in the fall of 2015 and averaged 5.9 points and 3.1 rebounds last season as a freshman.

Indiana travels to Minnesota on Saturday to play the Gophers at 5:15 p.m. ET on ESPN2.

    I feel bad for De’Ron and hope he recovers quickly. Maybe it will provide him an opportunity to see the game from another perspective while sitting and learning with the coaches. Another upside is this will provide an opportunity for Justin Smith, McSwain and Clifton Moore to step up and gain positive BIG Ten conference experience.

    Non contact. Lower leg. Sounds like a knee issue. Hope it’s not too serious but I would bet DD won’t be back. Silver lining is more playing for JS and CM. Next man up.

    Everyone I hear a vague non contact injury description I just assume its a torn ACL and the player is out for the year.

  • Jethro Jones

    lower leg I always think ankle. Maybe he just came down on it funny… hopefully not Gordon Hayward style.

  • Sarasota Hoosier

    Collin Hartman starts and we play small ball. I think IU wins this game! Go Hoosiers!

  • Colt

    I blame Dan Dakich for putting the jinx on him.

  • inLinE6

    We have to drain at least 15 3-pointers.

  • inLinE6

    If he’s not back for the season, can he still apply medical redshirt, or has he played too much already?

  • KingofKentucky

    He’s played too much unfortunately.

    Lower leg to me is most likely an ankle or foot injury (stress fracture) I wish him good luck with the diagnosis and rehab. Indiana still has the same issues, they can’t shoot, get outrebounded, turnover the ball too much, can’t play defense, and don’t capitalize on free throws. Other than that things are going well for Archie’s first year. I hope this allows Clifton Moore to get a lot on experience because for some reason Archie would not play him even when De’Ron was lazy and Freddie has “hands of stone”. The rumor is Moore has NBA talents but cant get into a game at Indiana? Go figure, even if he can’t shoot very good. Hell, none of the others can shoot either! Tom Crean had a better team the first year he was at Indiana and he had only one scholarship player. This is the worst Indiana team I can remember and I’m 64 years old. I have lost all faith in this bunch. Let the transfers and graduations begin.

    Dakich said DD was limping in the practice before the Whiskey game and milking it….then mentioned it during the game also…..wondering if this is one of those “lord I can’t do that cause my leg hurts so I can’t run” by an unmotivated player????? If Archie was pushing hard and giving out “headaches” maybe DD came up with another ache??????

  • Missing Moye

    15? That’s like 3 week’s worth for this team.

  • Koko

    Lynch is out for Minny and DD for us. Maybe small ball will be in our favor.
    Would love to see CM in the game.

  • Ole Man

    Wish it were so. They have a forward who has avg. a double/double 17 games in a row. Maybe JM can match him.

  • Koko

    Yes Murphy is very hot right now and Lynch was a good compliment.
    Would love to see JM break his double double string.

  • Doug Wilson

    When are we going to say, “This is just a bad mix of players”. This is not Coach and his system failing.

  • Doug Wilson

    This season counts as his Sophomore season. too many games played. There is a time line at the start of the season to apply for redshirt status.

    It never ceases to amaze me the level some people sink to with their ‘theories’ when it comes to poor or underperforming teams. It’s astonishing how much some fans can infer from their tvs.

  • JethroTroll

    Revisionist history at its best right here.

  • JethroTroll

    Love the optimism, but we’re going to get creamed in the Barn.

  • JethroTroll

    After reading through the responses on here, I’ve come to the conclusion that we’re all very fortunate that there are such a very high number of couch potato MDs on here that can diagnose injuries without ever examining the patient, with no training whatsoever, and by analyzing just a few words from a press release. It sure makes me sleep better knowing that we’re in such good hands. I’m suddenly very excited about our future.

  • Koko

    Thanks jethro for observing and feeling a need to make your comment. I always look forward to reading your comments.

  • JethroTroll

    And I really appreciate you letting me post on this board, and its mortally important to me that i seek your approval.

  • Apoc

    If this is at least a semi-serious injury that does affect his play and assuming it has been lingering, then it very much makes Dakich look like a fool. I’m sure we will here more about this tonight as Dakich loves to hear himself talk.

  • Koko

    I have no idea how you gleaned from my comment I was giving you the go ahead to post here and had my approval.
    I can only guess there was some covert hostility behind you saying that. After our last little go around I decided not to comment to you anymore and have not. Nor do I plan to from this point on. How in the world you felt a need to validate my optimism and then invalidate it in the same breath I’ll never know. Some people like to sugar coat their invalidation I guess. By the way I’m fully aware of the reputation of The Barn. Over and out.

  • JethroTroll

    Of course, you’re the victim. I’m so glad you’ve giving me permission to post on here. I’m sure gonna miss your smug approval though. I’m not sure how I’m gonna get through life now. Gonna be tough.

  • Oldman

    It seems we all gather things from the tv or from what other people post that they have gathered. I just love that we have people who seem to come from all walks of life but gather here as fans. As fans we all have the chance to input what we have gathered from other sources and share with our likewise fans. Like Jethro it never ceases to amaze me the level of we rise to as sharing fans!!!!!!!
