It might be the most famous knee in Charlotte sports right now (maybe that’s a slight exaggeration), but we’re a little closer to finding out the seriousness of Charlotte 49ers point guard Pierria Henry’s knee injury and whether or not he will be ready to go on Wednesday for the big Davidson game at Halton Arena.
On his weekly radio show at Dave and Buster’s inside Concord Mills, Niners head coach Alan Major reported that Henry had a doctor’s visit today and had the knee scanned. There were no results available immediately, Major mentioned. But the scans should take a day or two to come back so word should come down tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest.
Henry hurt the knee yesterday when he banged knees with a UNC Asheville player during the Niners’ win over the Bulldogs; he then fell to the ground in some pain and had to be carried off the floor by teammates. It’s a potential blow to a team that has won five in a row and has Davidson coming in Wednesday night.
The Wildcats may be short a player themselves. De’mon Brooks has been suffering from a bad knee and his status for Wednesday is up in the air. Davidson enters play 2-5, but has played three nationally-ranked teams, including Duke, in the process.
