Marty Simmons Won't Commit to Anything on Colt Ryan Injury

Following Evansville's 56-50 loss to Buffalo in the Coaches vs. Cancer event, Aces coach Marty Simmons addressed the most pressing issue for his 0-2 team: the Colt Ryan hip injury.

Ryan left the game just six and a half minutes in and returned to the Aces bench with a heavy wrap around his mid-section. At the time, the injury was reported as a hip pointer, and that it could take 2-4 weeks to recover.

His status for Friday night's game against Yale has not been determined:

Do you have any idea if Ryan can play tomorrow against Yale?

"I do not. I have not been informed by any medical people at this time."

Losing Ryan probably forces the Aces to go with a smaller lineup, possibly slotting Lewis Jones into a starting role.
