“I’m still trying to be very optimistic that he’ll be able to play, I just don’t know when,” Scott said. “I hope I’m not talking like it’s long term or for the season, I’m still optimistic he’ll be able to play this year until the doctors tell me something different.” Scott didn’t provide many more details about the injury, but agreed that after missing 10 games, it’s fair to assume it’s more than just a bruise. “But I’m not a doctor. I’m not going to speculate or even try to guess what it is,” Scott said. “I’m just hoping that he gets healthy and that he can play. But right now my thoughts are with Andy. … Forget basketball, I’m hoping he’s OK. That’s the biggest thing.” via Akron Beacon Journal
