    You should clarify, 4 to 6 weeks from now, not four to six weeks of the season

    In before DJ3 makes claims that other coaches didn't have this many injuries. C'mon Dave!

    With Boyd out and presumably taking a medical red shirt, how does this effect our scholarship table? Won't we be over the 13 threshold with the 3 kids we having coming in next year and Boyd returning for a 5th year?

    I wouldn’t worry about it, it’s highly likely that we have a kid transfer out, Wilson and or Boyd will most likely also have the opportunity to be Grad Transfers.

    Call me crazy, but it may be a good thing in the long run to have Kier out of the first couple games. The team will have to pick up the slack and ball movement will have to be sharp. Hopefully they'll adapt to not being able to just rely on Kier in isolation. Then we add him back into the mix, and see what they can do when he's healthy.

    The Boyd news is really unfortunate though. Good thing we have plenty of wing depth. We should get a good look at what we've got in the young guys. Maybe someone will find themselves out of the rotation and open up a spot for Boyd to return next year. Hopefully AJ sticks around and no big contributors transfer.

    Trying to look on the bright side.

    Seems like a good opportunity for JDS....

    JDS and Xavier Johnson. We will see how ready they are right away.

    Is Kier's play better at a faster or slower pace?

    You are correct. I would say there is probably a 1% chance that Boyd is on this team next year. I like the kid a lot and wish him a speedy recovery but he will transfer to a team that has a better chance of dancing or a school closer to home.

    Yeah I can't imagine him staying unfortunately. I really liked him.

    you would think that, however it's not like Boyd is a starter even at GMU. Grayer was a starter who had his Dad (a former NBA player) think his kid could play at a higher level.

    Boyd being out will give someone with more upside time to get on the court. I think he chose the wrong sport and doubt you'll ever see him in a G Mas jersey again.

    If Boyd’s wrist prevents him from shooting maybe he goes back to football. Wouldn’t be that shocking.

    If it’s that bad, I can’t imagine that playing football would be a good choice.

    Besides, couldn’t he always pull a Greg Paulus and get an extra year of eligibility if he switched to football after one more year of basketball?

    Boyd doesn't have to leave Mason Basketball if he sits out this year. If he's healed and the team wants him (and Ian wants Mason) then they will find a way to keep him. I know we currently have no athletic scholarships available, but that's not the only way to keep a player in school and participate on the team, no?

    Did we clarify if Kier is missing 4-6 weeks of the season? Or 4-6 weeks from 3 weeks ago.
