Michala Johnson update

I just heard back from Montini Catholic girls' basketball coach Jason Nichols and the doctor who examined UConn signee Michala Johnson's injured right knee believes it is not a torn ACL but is more likely a meniscus injury. Nichols said the 6-foot-3 Johnson will have an MRI tonight and obviously more will be known after the results of the tests are back.

It should be noted that it is not the same knee Johnson hurt last season in the season opener, an injury which cost her the rest of the season.

I'll share what Jason sent to me in an e-mail.

"Her doctor says he doesn't believe it is the ACL. He thinks it's the meniscus. He thinks it is a sprain but the MRI will reveal what it is. A tear and she is out 6 weeks and season is lost. A scope and it is 4 weeks and (she'll be) back by the second week of playoffs. A (sprain) will be 2 weeks. "
