Michael Gilchrist Suffers Knee Injury

The nation’s top high school player, Mike Gilchrist, went down with a knee injury in the first half against Union HS last night. He was taken to the ER and he’s getting an MRI this morning. It’s too early to tell extent of the injury. Here’s hoping it’s not too bad.

    Yikes. I always feel nervous for these talented kids. It’s like, once you are in the league and earn some money, an injury sucks, but at least you have some money to fall back on. If you get hurt in HS or college, you probably don’t have a backup.

    This would not be good expecially at this stage in his young career

    Damn, hope it’s nothing serious. Mike is the future.

    their backup would be school itself, but these kids don’t think of that

    Actually, dma, Mike would do just fine without bball. Bball would miss him, though.

    I was at the game. Michael was hurting. Block/charge call where he appeared not to have twisted the knee, which was a good thing.

    That being said, he was really hurting. We’ll see what the MRI says.

    I hope that he recovers quickly. A really nice kid.

    Hopefully its just a sprain and he can bounce back; I’m going through rehab after acl replacement surgery and its no joke…

    speaking from experience, one thing mike shouldn’t do is try to force the issue when he comes back from the injury. He should take his time and rest until he feels 100 percent. Hopefully this injury is not serious and it doesn’t affect him in the future. ‘Cause like like Ben Osborne said, bball would miss him

    Sounds like Mike will be fine:
    That story says “1-3 weeks.” Also, in speaking with people close to him, I was told it is not a big deal at all. Whew.
