Worster

Post by Cheecho6 » February 17th, 2021, 7:36 pm

What happened? Since he’s in a boot I am guessing he’s out for the rest of the year?

Not sure what happened but a boot doesn’t mean much in regards to seriousness. Sometimes they wear them even with only mild aggravations.

Rollie has a minor stress fracture in his foot. Rumor is they played him against Fresno knowing that he had an issue and it made it worse.

Well if he’s been sitting out of practice since the Fresno game he’s already had a while for it to heal a bit. So hopefully he only misses a few games.

We could have really used him tonight. Ashworth has played decent but we need the Ying to the Yang.

Ashworth was off on his shot. Part of that is probably due to fatigue after playing the majority of the game. Hope to get worster back soon.

Foot stress fractures can be slow to heal, or at least feel good enough to play on.

At best we could see him for the conference tourney, but man would he be rusty.

Smith said in postgame that it was a lower leg injury and confirmed that he basically had it in the Fresno game and wouldn't have played the 2nd one. Sounds like it's still day to day. Decided 2 days ago he wouldn't play today.

We could have used Worster big time tonight. Ashworth played decent, but his shot was off. Worster has a good ability to finish at the rim. Could have used his big body on defense tonight.

If Worster can go, I think you have to play him Friday. Too much at stake not to.

I will say Ashworth runs a pretty good point. 6 assist to 2 turnovers. Rollie has struggled with TO but gives us a bigger body on D and helps him be able to get to hoop. Ashworth is also usually nice energy and jolt of scoring off bench.

I had a stress fracture while at USU. They told me I was out 6-8 weeks. If it's a stress fracture, I think he's out the full six weeks minimum and wouldn't be surprised if it's the full eight.

Well, this explains why he only played 17 min. against Fresno St. and hardly sniffed the court in the second half.

I think the bigger issue at hand is how we possibly deal with Nevada after BSU without Worster. I think their guards are more talented than BSU's. Sherfield and Cambridge are flat out awesome. If we're going to a mostly 7-man rotation I think we're in trouble to finish the year.

Ashworth played pretty good. We just missed Rollie's contributions. Ashworth seems to really thrive coming off the bench and being the energizer bunny for 5-7 minute stretches where he can extend all of his energy knowing he will get rest. It is different when you know you have to be the primary ball handler for the most of the game.

Good point GUS. Considering the entire weight of the body can shift to a full load on a single foot, a stress fracture can be both long lasting and slow to recover. Doesn't look good right now, but we just don't have facts or medical professional input to judge the situation. You said it best GUS.

I had one in my foot about 20 years ago. It took 6 months before it felt close normal.

So it looks like it's time to put Worseter out to pasture and start recruiting his replacement? Can Vedischev come back?

The word is it’s a minor stress fracture. So is there much difference between a minor and a major one? You fellas that have had a stress fracture in the past, was it considered a minor one?

I think we need to see more of Anderson. Work him until he gets tired. We need him to contribute some of the things Worster can do. Hopefully, Anderson's shot will be on. If so, we should be ok. He needs to score in double figures, get 5 or 6 rebounds, very few turnovers, and play really good defense. He obviously won't be playing the same position, but an off guard.

A stress fracture is a stress fracture. If it was really in the beginning stages, they would refer to it as a stress reaction (slightly better than a stress fracture).

The loss of a freshman guard, regardless of how much or how well he has been playing, should not be devastating for an NCAA tournament team. This is where the painfully slow development of Bairstow really hurts. I don't know what is keeping Shulga out of the lineup. If he can shoot, he can help a team that needs shooters that can make baskets. Is it defense? Understanding of the offense? He doesn't appear to have an attitude problem and he hustles in the few minutes he gets. He just looks lost.

He is darn good guard. I feel like this is where a healthy Liam could have helped. Helped with mins on the perimeter. Agreed be nice if shulga could help in some way. Remember he shot over 50% 3s at his last stop.

I love coach Smith and he has done a fantastic job his 3 years here. That being said I do feel at times he is hesitant to give some of the younger guys playing time. Shulga in my opinion is one that has needed more consistent playing time. As it stands we are almost done with the season and he is a non factor. It is one thing for Zapala to get limited minutes based on just the number of minutes available at the 5 position with Queta and Dorius playing well. I feel like Shulga should have been consistently getting 5-7 minutes most games and let him develop.

We also really needed Liam to step up and be a consistent scorer, but unfortunately could not keep healthy. To me one of the biggest deficiencies on this team is shooting and scoring. We seem to really struggle at times to get the ball in the hoop or go on long scoring droughts.

I can't believe anyone is complaining about Smith not playing young players. Worster is a freshman. Ashworth is a freshman. Bairstow is 2nd year, Dorius is 2nd year. He started Crew Ainge two years ago for more than half the season as a terrible freshman and gave Bean playing time when he earned it. Queta started as a freshman. How many more young players do you have to see play in 3 years to say Smith gives them a chance? Shulga is not playing because he hasn't shown he is better than anyone else on the court. Period. I hope he does good in his future but I haven't seen enough good out of him in games to say that he should be playing more.

I mean, to be fair, our season is already pretty much effed with the loss tonight.

We absolutely have to win the conference tourney again and I don’t see that happening with Shulga and Bairstow getting the amount of minutes they are getting. Sucks to lose one of our most important players at such a critical part of the season.

I mean these games were really frustrating to lose, but to not have your starting PG and have a chance in the last minutes both games against a top 35 team is nothing to scoff at.

Boise State isn’t that good, and neither are we. Not a single MW team will win a tourney game. You can book that.
