We may not be the only one with injury problems

A huge recruit for Oregon is uncertain.

One of Oregon's five-star freshmen is still on the mend from an injury suffered during his senior season of high school.

Forward Louis King, who tore his meniscus in January during his senior season at Hudson Catholic High School in Jersey City, N.J., has not been cleared for full contact and the timetable for when he'll take the court for the Ducks is undetermined.

"He's doing some things but nothing live yet," Oregon coach Dana Altman said. "I don't know when he'll be back, but we're hoping that he gets cleared at some point in time."

The 6-foot-9, 205-pound King was ranked No. 20 overall in the 247Sports Composite last year. He averaged 15.2 points and 4.4 rebounds per game as a senior prior to the injury.

Altman couldn't say if King would miss any games or not.

"I'm not going to make any predictions there," Altman said. "It's just whenever the doctors clear him, we'll get him out there."
A meniscus tear is usually not a big deal. The fact that he is still out this long after the injury should be troubling for the Ducks. If he cannot play, his loss would be a lot bigger than for them than our injuries are for us.
