Racers experience more injury troubles
MURRAY, KY-- When Murray State broke their practice huddle Monday afternoon, the Racers took to the floor with one less player. Sophomore forward Zay Henderson could only watch from the sideline after he injured his left hand in a practice drill on Sunday.
"There was a tussle for the ball, he got it, went up for the dunk and got fouled over the hand," head coach Steve Prohm explained. "It ended up being a broken hand. Ironically, the same injury that Ivan Aska had his senior year."
The injury will keep Henderson out for four to six weeks, which means the Racers will have just eight scholarship players to work with until transfer T.J. Sapp is eligible in a month.
"There is a depth concern," Prohm admitted. "There is a foul trouble concern, but nothing will change, we have to play the same way. The one positive when you have only eight guys is chemistry should be good, because everybody knows they're going to play a lot."
