Talked by telephone with Austin Daye earlier in the 9 o’clock hour and just filed an updated article that will run in Tuesday’s S-R.
Austin sounded a little bummed, understandably, but he was also appreciative of having two visitors at his home in Irvine Monday night — Ronny Turiaf and GU assistant coach Tommy Lloyd.
One clarification: Daye said doctors have told him he has a partially torn ACL. He wasn’t sure of the percentage of the tear or what a partial tear vs. a complete tear means in terms of surgery and recovery, but he expects to have surgery in the next few days. Daye said there is no damage to other knee ligaments (PCL, MCL, LCL) or cartilage.
Daye attended the first session of summer school at GU. He said he might return to Spokane earlier than normal to begin rehabilitation work on his knee, but will wait to see what unfolds in the next few weeks.
