Jarred Guest Suffers an Ankle Injury

Junior power forward Jarred Guest suffered a dislocated ankle on August 28, 2013. Guest's recovery time is predicted to be 6-8 weeks. He will be returning by the beginning of the season, but the break will certainly hinder the momentum he was building from playing in Europe and early summer practices.

By most accounts, Guest was having a great off-season before the injury. From what I observed during an open scrimmage, Guest appeared to be heading for a breakout season. I still believe he will be fine for this year and able to put up good numbers. He should be the first big off the bench, and he will still have another year to learn under veterans Juvonte Reddic and Terrance Shannon. Last season Coach Smart felt that Jared was the best rebounder during practice and one of the better practice players overall.

I wish Jarred a speedy recovery and am anxious to see him make major strides on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball during the upcoming season.
