Landen Lucas said he has recovered from the ankle sprain that limited his playing time to eight minutes in the opener against Pittsburg State.

“It is much better. It was a bad time for it to happen, at the end of practice right before the game,” Lucas said. “It gave a lot of people a chance to go out there. I’ve been here long enough. I feel coach understands what I can do. I can show him in practice, too. I probably should not have played and not tried to force the issue. I’ve got to move forward and get ready for the regular season and our first game.”

I thought it was fouls that limited his playing time. After all, he did start the game making two fouls within about 2 min.

Every day, first thing I do is come here hoping to see Diallo cleared. Wondering if that will ever happen...
