In addition to finals week, Iowa State guard Wesley Johnson is getting some rest and relaxation as well.
“He’ll be on the shelf four or five days off to give him some rest,’’ Iowa State basketball coach Greg McDermott said today. “I don’t anticipate he’ll practice until at least Thursday.’’
Johnson is trying to come back from a bone bruise in his left foot that has limited his season to just four games so far. McDermott said last week that if the injury doesn’t improve during the week off, Johnson might apply for a medical hardship.
Iowa State doesn’t play again until a Dec. 17 game with Bethune-Cookman at Hilton Coliseum.
He'll decide by the end of the weekend. I think he'll have a pretty good idea by Friday or Saturday after he Wes rests and stays off the foot as much as possible. They're pretty much just trying to see if its going to get better in a couple weeks or if it's going to take a couple months to be 100%. If it looks like it's going to take a month or two, they'll file for the medical redshirt.
A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.
