Golden Nuggets: MSF, Gutierrez Day-to-Day, Bak Bak Done for the Season

New, 17 comments

During today's press conference Monty gave an update on Jorge and MSF and gave a definitive answer about why Bak hasn't played since Pac-10 play opened.

No definitive news on the health status of either center Markhuri Sanders-Frison(back spasms) or sixth-man Jorge Gutierrez (sprained knee). Both are day-to-day this week, and questionable to play Thursday against Oregon, coach Mike Montgomery said. Both sat out practice Monday.

Sanders-Frison missed last Thursday’s game at Washington State, then played two days later at Washington. Gutierrez has been out the past four games, limiting the Bears’  backcourt rotation.

"He’s getting better," Montgomery said of Guiterrez. "We’re hoping we can get him in this week at some point."

While Frison-Sanders’ status may simply depend on how he feels Thursday, the Bears have been cautious with Gutierrez, who aggravated the same knee that underwent arthroscopic surgery last spring to clean up a torn meniscus. Hard to imagine the Bears will risk putting him on the floor until he’s feeling no pain, because they don’t want to face the possibility of a longer stretch without him.

Montgomery said point guard Jerome Randle’s right knee, which was stepped on late in the WSU game, is fine.

However, freshman forward Bak Bak has been ruled academically ineligible for the spring semester, meaning he is done for the season. He averaged 1.3 points in eight games and has not played in a Pac-10 contest.
