Any news????

Figured this would have already been posted but: https://www.al.com/auburnbasketball/index.ssf/2018/10/report_austin_wiley_to_miss_a.html#incart_river_index

 

Auburn will apparently be without center Austin Wiley for a "few weeks" while he deals with a sprained left foot

Wiley met with a specialist on Saturday morning, and according to a report from AuburnUndercover.com, coach Bruce Pearl expects the Tigers' big man to miss a few weeks, though he will address the injury further on Monday. Auburn opens the season Nov. 6 against South Alabama -- 24 days from Saturday's diagnosis, which should provide optimism that Wiley may not miss any games to start the year.

So not a broken  bone in his foot but  a sprain?

Apparently. Sprains can be worse than breaks sometimes. There are 26 bones in the foot (thanks Google!) and some are really small and detecting a break can be difficult as well. I hope they are very cautious about him returning or this could be aggravated very easily.

True.  The news that it's a sprain is nothing to rejoice over. Torn ligaments are slow to heal and never fully recover.  A clean bone break could be preferable, even if it takes another week or two to fully heal.
