NCAAM; Recruiting: Gilchrist Awaiting MRI Results

January 8, 2010

Small forward Elizabeth, New Jersey St. Patrick AAU: Team Jordan Ht:6'6" Wt:190 lbs Class:2011 (High School)

Elizabeth (N.J.) St. Patrick junior wing Michael Gilchrist underwent an MRI on his right knee Thursday and is expecting the results Friday, according to a report on The Star-Ledger’s website.

The 6-7 Gilchrist injured the knee Tuesday night during the Celtics’ 62-46 victory over Union.

My heart dropped for him because he’s a kid,” Celtics coach Kevin Boyle told The Ledger Thursday after the team’s 66-44 win over Linden at Kean College. “You worry. As a team, obviously you don’t want to see anybody injured. You feel awful for the kid because he’s a junior. You only have so many games in high school and he’s so excited about the season.”

“A player like Mike Gilchrist, he can never be replaced, said Duke-bound point guard Kyrie Irving, who poured in 31 points in the win. “Especially on our team, he’s definitely missed right now.”

Boyle said they would wait to hear from the doctors to learn when Gilchrist might return.

The No. 1 junior in the nation, Gilchrist was averaging 16.2 points before the injury.

Kentucky and Villanova are thought to be the leaders for his services, but other schools are involved as well.
