Coach Mike Montgomery issued a statement this morning on the status of Richard Solomon, suggesting the sophomore forward could be back on the court in time for the Bears’ Dec. 29 Pac-12 opener against USC.
Solomon sustained a stress fracture or stress reaction to his left foot and will miss Monday night’s game against UC Santa Barbara and the Bears’ game Friday at UNLV. He will be evaluated in the meantime.
“Unfortunately, Richard will miss the next couple of games due to this injury,” said Montgomery. “We hope to have him back on the court, after Christmas, in time for the start of the Pac-12 season.”
