Still very weird that there has never been a timeline or solid information. Someone already said this but very similar to Kawhi Leonard - I’m hoping it doesn’t play out that way.

I understand the coach, team or player may not want to give specifics but rarely do you not get a timeline such as 6-8 weeks, out for year etc. I hope team is just playing things close to vest otherwise it’s a situation of diagnose keeps changing or rehab isn’t working

I feel like there are two potential scenarios...

1-Queta will return fairly soon and they are with holding information from the media so they can surprise our first big opponent and they will be unsure if he is playing. Then...boom, here comes Queta into the game!

OR

2-He is most likely going to miss most of our big games non conference or even out for the season and they don’t want teams to know and plan for him not playing.

I fear #2 is true, but hoping it’s #1 scenario. I want to watch Queta play with this group! I think with him we can go to places never seen before in Aggie history. Without him, we will still be good, but may have some issues with tough competition.

Any factual basis for this, or just speculation? If speculation, why post it? If based on facts, it seems irresponsible to post the conclusion without the supporting basis.

I put this in another thread, but Queta is partially practicing. Confirmed by the Trib today.

*Insert wildly speculative and unsubstantiated comment here*

Ex: It's obvious that Queta has lost his entire knee. It's just gone. We won't have him back until at least mid-January because of the timeline it takes to grow a new knee through a third-party biotech company. He probably won't make it back this season. However, one positive item: I think they can increase his vertical a bit with this knee replacement. It may add up to a foot on his standing vertical, if I had to guess.

Basically, Queta is not 100%, and we don't need Queta to beat MSU.
Expect Queta back as early as next week.

Bank on this. It is the same guy that told us to play Bean more. He also predicted that Brito would be a star.

Makes sense. I didn't buy he was out for the season. They wouldn't hide or downplay it if he was out long term.

From what we were told, Queta had a combination of a sprained knee and dislocated knee cap. A run of the mill sprain is likely 4 weeks and a dislocated knee cap is around 6 weeks. His could have been a more severe category of sprain. If any type of surgery is needed for either of these injuries, it could push things out to 4-6 months. Unless someone knows something I don’t, I’ve never heard anything about him needing surgery.
So, my guess is that his knee is gradually improving but not at the rate they hoped for. The coaches figure we don’t probably need him for the first few games so why risk getting him reinjured until he is close to 100%. Coach Smith has also mentioned repeatedly that Queta sitting out is a blessing in disguise as he is utilizing this time to put on weight and get stronger. Also let’s our other bigs get some more development opportunities. I’m guessing we could see him for Weber but if not, then maybe not until NC A&T or UTSA so he can get some limited minutes to get up to game speed in time for LSU.

Queta needs to get stronger in general. His injury set him back a bit on that. It's a good idea for them to take their time and make sure he's stronger than ever and his knee is fully stable and supported by surrounding muscle so that he is less likely to have future injuries.

Pat Mahomes had a dislocated knee cap and is out 3-4 weeks. Just sayin.

I think smith said he has put on 30 pounds, hope its muscle.

A dislocated knee cap is never as simple as 6 weeks for recovery. I have treated a hand full of those injuries, the longest of them still had pain after 4 months.

Queta's knee has just been slow to recover and has still bothered him. It's just taking time and the coaching staff doesn't know how long it'll be until he's fully ready to go. Even once he is ready it'll still take some time to then get back into shape and game ready. On top of that we need to hope there's not any set backs.

"Could very well be out for the season" could absolutely be based on specific information about the severity of the injury with a lengthy, but not completely known recovery time. Or it could be rank speculation of a poster intentionally being an a$$. Not saying that's you Vi, because you know I love you, but that is exactly what I was trying to clarify.

Here's the facts: An option for this injury immediately after it happened was surgery. They opted to rehab and hope it would allow Queta to play this season. If there are complications in the rehab, more time will be missed. The team wants to be in the best possible position for an at large, so having him for the LSU/Florida/South Florida/Saint Mary's quartet would be ideal. That failing, they hope he's back by conference play, but there is a chance that he will ultimately need surgery.

I wasn't being an (I can't express myself without swearing), I was being serious, and yes it was speculative because I have no idea, but I do know that knee injuries are difficult to come back from in a short time. I HOPE he plays. :rock:

Has anyone tried verbal communication to ask him what his status is. I have a suspicion that he might know if his knee still hurts or not. He also might be able to mention if it hurts less now compared to 3-4 months ago, which could be a sign of healing.

I don't care if Queta misses the entire non-conference schedule. If we can get him back in time for conference play, that is what really matters. This team is hoping to win in March (MWC and NCAA tournaments, specifically), not November.

I have a hard time being concerned with seeding. Yes we have opportunity based on preseason ranking but still have to beat good teams in non conference and take care of business in conference which will be a tall order without Queta. Concerned with interior scoring and outside shooting besides Sam. Porter is a pretty good shooter, Miller too streaky

We've won only 1 NCAA tournament game in the past 49 seasons so it's probably not as big of a concern as winning the games to get there in the first place and be healthy in the end.
