Canisius freshman guard Zach Lewis didn’t suffer any broken bones when he injured his ankle last Tuesday in the Griffs’ CIT loss to VMI, the athletic department confirmed today.
The team called the injury a “pretty significant ankle sprain,” which is an injury to a ligament.
Lewis was attacking the basket early in the first half and went down awkwardly. He couldn’t put any weight on the leg when he was helped off the court and was announced out for the game shortly after. Canisius lost, 111-100, ending its season.
Lewis is no longer on crutches or in a walking boot, the team said, and expected he’ll be cleared to resume activity in 7-10 days.
Lewis was an All-MAAC Rookie Team selection this year, averaging 9.5 points per game, and will be next year’s only returning starter.Follow @nickveronica
