Jahlil Okafor (knee) is out indefinitely as Brett Brown said that “something felt just not perfect” in the knee when Okafor got on the treadmill on Monday, and the team is expected to share the results of his CT scan on Thursday.
That’s one way to put it. “We’ve been treating his shin,” Brown said. “During that whole procedure, we’re trying to figure out some swelling in his knee, some soreness in his knee. We’ve known about the knee.” This has been lingering for a while and when asked if he was fearful Okafor’s status could be worse than the coach is saying, Brown replied, “It’s way too premature to speculate in any direction. I do feel confident that what has been told to me will be true for the media, that we will know more soon. I can’t quantify what soon means, and then we will share it.” Okafor’s owners should be ready for any type of news, including the bad news. Jerami Grant’s status as a top-150 producer gets solidified with this news and owners will want to keep one eye on Richaun Holmes from afar, in case the injury bug hits Nerlens Noel in the next 45 days of meaningless games.
