Junior point guard Levance Fields left the game with a left foot injury with 15:45 remaining and did not return. He had to be helped off the floor and left the arena with a walking boot on his foot.
No official information was available after the game, but one source said Fields could have a fracture and his season might be over. Dixon said more information on Fields’ foot would be known today after doctors can examine him.
The Trib. says he could be out for at least a month.
In the abstract, it can be argued that Pitt has been exceedingly lucky over this decade with regards to major injuries. This season may turn out to be some sort of horrible, hideous payback.
No, I don’t buy it either.
