Tuesday practice: Salter out

October 26th, 2010

It's been a tough few days for the Hawaii men's basketball team, which has made do with an assortment of players coming and going in the practice lineup due to ailments.

Junior point guard Anthony Salter was the latest casualty. He said he heard a popping sound in his left foot near the end of Monday's practice, and sat out all of today's morning session. He was given a boot to wear and said he was told by the training staff it was plantar fasciitis.

Salter, one of three point guards competing for playing time along with senior Hiram Thompson and freshman Bobby Miles, said he's getting an MRI on his foot later today.

That's all for now. Will try to update his status in Wednesday's edition of the Star-Advertiser.

    Brian,

    Mahalo for the updates.

    Hopefully Salter's injury isn't one of a lingering plantar fascitis injury that could take months to heal.

    I have no clue who will start, but just going by recruiting hype, here's my starting five.

    Salter pg (if healthy), if not Hiram Thompson
    Johnson sg
    Thomas swing
    Amis pf
    Josten c

    plantar fasciitis -- isn't that what sidelined Bill Amis all of last year?

    Hey Stan,

    Bill had a completely torn plantar fascia, so it was a little worse in his case. But yes, plantar fasciitis is bad too ... it can linger. Salter has a tear in his heel, it's supposed to take a couple weeks to heal.
