Looks like Aaron Gray might be feeling a little more pain and discomfort from than injury than he originally had and it could be a bit more serious than originally believed. Dixon played it cool though and he comes in to calm us all down.

Two X-rays and a magnetic resonance imaging did not show any structural damage to the wrist, and Pitt coach Jamie Dixon said he is hopeful that Gray will be able to practice today and play against Marquette.

“I would say he has more discomfort than pain,” Dixon said. “We’ll see how it goes [today]. He was able to play with it Tuesday, and he did pretty well. I don’t see that it is anything serious. But we’re going to see how it is [today] and go from there.”

The final decision is to be made later today or tomorrow.

If he were to sit this one out, Levon Kendall would move over to center and Tyrell Biggs and Sam Young would play more at power forward. We might find out the hard way that sometimes we don’t appreciate Gray’s presence until he’s out.
