Default A'ja Wilson

I figured it might be a good idea to start a new thread for updates on Wilson's injury, rather than continuing to post them in the UF game thread. Certainly hope we can get her back sooner rather than later. The only silver lining, as we saw with the men's team, is this will require other players to step up, which will hopefully make the team as a whole better in the long run.

Fans need to step up, too, beginning with the Georgia game on Thursday. Pack the CLAW and make it a madhouse.

This is a huge blow if A'ja misses much time, as not only is she our leading scorer like Thornwell is for the men's team, but we are already pretty thin in depth with bigs, and her loss means it will change the dynamic of how the team can compete. With Thornwell's loss, we had others to take his place and do the things he did, but they just didn't do it as well.

Certainly hoping that her injury is minor at best, and she returns soon...

A'ja is our best player but we might be able to lose her easier than Alaina. Alaina is a pure big and a double-double machine that gives us an edge in the middle.

Ankle sprains can be nagging, but A'ja should be back in a couple of weeks. Not like an ACL or MCL on the knee. Ironically, the injury is worse for a jump shooter - harder to plant and land with one foot, and you get paranoid every time you go up. A'ja has a jump shoot, but prefers to take it to the basket. She should be fine.

Thanks, man, nothing irks me more than fans who think their only reason for going to our games is to be entertained. This is college, not the pros. We need to give our teams the best home advantage possible; that, along with financial contributions is our job.

It looks like it's just a run of the mill sprained ankle. I bet Dawn will hold her out of the UGA game as a precaution. We will need her more on the road at LSU on Sunday. http://www.thestate.com/sports/colle...125384289.html

Seems like a minor ankle sprain. They are evaluating daily, so that's a good sign. She probably won't be out for too long but I think we should rest her for awhile just so we can have her at full strength for Mississippi State and UConn.

I watched the Mississippi State/Tennessee game yesterday and the bulldogs are really good ya'll. We'll need to be ready to go for that game as it will likely decide the SEC because I don't think either team will lose another game besides whoever loses that one.

I wonder how this affect the starting lineup? Does Kiki get the start at the 4? Do we bring Bianca back in and move Kaela to the four. It will be interesting to see how Dawn tinkers with the lineup.

I think we'll go guard heavy..

PG - Harris
SG - Cuevas Moore (I like her at SG more and more)
SF - Gray
PF - Davis
C - Coates

We'll probably see more Bradshaw in the rotation now (good for her in the long run)

First off the bench would have to go to Harrigan. Then i'm guessing one of either Bradshaw, Cliney, T.Davis.

When did she get hurt? I watched the whole game, I thought maybe they just took her out because of the lead

She came down for a rebound early in the fourth quarter and landed on a UF player's foot.

That's true but we'll get to see if others can step up. This might please some of the fans that complained about us always feeding the post. Even though we could still feed the post now that AC will be the only one on the block. Which should give her more space.

We have folks who can do what she does just not as well very similar to the men's team, Coates will now have more room to work in the lane, Harrigan will get more playing time, sucks Jennings is sitting out but Davis and Grey both have the skill set to play inside as you will see. Moore, Harrigan and Cliney will see significantly more minutes now along with Tiffany Davis IMO
