|2/2/01- Williams Back in Lineup
|Mike practiced without problems on Tuesday and performed
well in the Rowan game. He played 19 minutes, scored 6 points, had
5 rebounds. He also had the in-bounds assist on James Spell's 3-pointer
that sent the game into OT with 1 second remaining. Although we
lost the game to Rowan in OT, Williams had no further complications
with his knee. Mike will continue rehab 3 days/ week.
|1/30/01- Williams Expected to Play Against Rowan
was seen by Dr. John Baker today. The results of his MRI were negative
for meniscal or ligament damage. Mike was diagnosed with a tibial/
meniscal contusion. He still has some significant pain associated
with full knee flexion. We will now focus on returning his range
of motion to normal, increasing his proprioception and improving
his quad/ hamstring strength. He will continue with rehab at least
for the next 2 weeks. If he passes his functional testing today,
we expect him practice and be available on a limited basis against
Rowan on Wednesday.
|1/29/01- Williams Status Improves
|Mike's knee has been steadily improving day by day.
He still has not developed any significant inflammation and his
pain free range of motion continues to get better. We removed him
from crutches on Friday. His improvement has lowered our index of
suspicion for a meniscal tear. He had an MRI on Saturday at Atlantic
City Medical Center. He returns to Dr. John Baker on Tuesday for
follow-up. He will continue rehab daily.
|1/25/01- Williams Sprains Knee
|In the second overtime of the men's basketball game
against TCNJ, Mike Williams landed on someones foot while rebounding
and twisted his knee. He continued to play and did not come out
of the game. Post game he was evaluated and iced. Today he presented
with little inflammation but a great deal of pain and a limited
Range of Motion. His evaluation indicates a possible medial meniscal
tear, and Mike was placed on crutches after rehab focusing on pain
control. He is scheduled with an orthopedic visit tomorrow afternoon.
Mike will be out of competition until a firm diagnosis is made.
