After a day of awaiting answers, LSU guard Keith Hornsby decided to take matters into his own hands.
Whether or not Hornsby will miss the remainder of the season is still up in the air, but the Tigers’ senior is maintaining a positive approach and is still optimistic about his chances of returning to the hardwood and help the team in whatever ways he can.
Hornsby declared himself “week to week” in a status posted to his Facebook page early Tuesday morning.
“I don’t feel the need to give out the close details of my injury, but it’s very unpredictable right now,” Hornsby wrote.
“It’ll be a week to week thing where for me it’ll have to go off of how I feel. I’ll be getting treatment, and we’ll just have to see what happens. Meanwhile, I’ll do whatever I can to help the squad.”
On Monday, a report surfaced that indicated that Hornsby would be out for the rest of the season after sustaining a hernia injury in LSU’s loss to Tennessee over the weekend.
LSU coach Johnny Jones did not refute the notion, but was awaiting more concrete results. He also noted that Hornsby was ruled out for tonight’s conference game against Arkansas.
Hornsby, who is the Tigers’ second-leading scorer, averaging 13.1 points and shooting a team-high 41.5 percent from beyond the 3-point arc, would be a major loss for a team that has NCAA tournament aspirations but is far from safe to secure an at-large bid.
