Alabama Forward Out for Season
Alabama forward Darius Miles is out for the remainder of the season with an ankle injury.
The University of Alabama made the public announcement shortly before the Alabama men's basketball team tipped off its game against LSU on Saturday afternoon.
"Alabama men's basketball announced that junior Darius Miles will be sidelined for the rest of the season with an ankle injury," said UA's official press release. "Miles sustained the injury during preseason camp and saw limited action in six contests along with ongoing rehab since the original injury. After consulting with medical staff and Andrews' Sports Medicine foot and ankle specialist, Dr. Norman Waldrop, it was determined to withhold Miles from basketball activities moving forward and focus on his rehabilitation."
The junior has seen time in six games this season, averaging 1.5 points and rebounds per game, as well as recording three assists, a steal, a block, and is a perfect 4-of-4 from the free throw line.
The last time Miles saw action on the court was against Jackson State on Dec. 20. He played for seven minutes and recorded two points.
The Alabama men's basketball team is currently leading LSU 65-26 with 15:40 remaining in the game.
