No MRI yet for UConn signee Gabby Williams

According to her father Matt, UConn incoming freshman Gabby Williams is still in a holding pattern as she waits to see the severity of her latest knee injury.

Williams landed awkwardly on her right knee in Reed High's 58-37 win over Spanish Springs on Tuesday and is in the process of scheduling an MRI.

Matt Williams said the knee specialist Gabby has seen in the past was all booked up yesterday but the hope is she gets the knee looked at either later today or tomorrow.

Matt Williams said that it looks like his daughter just twisted her knee and she did something similar last week, took a couple of days off and was fine but considering that she is a year moved from ACL surgery, they aren't going to take any chances. Matt Williams said it highly unlikely that Gabby will play in Friday's game against top rival Reno High School.

"She's a little frustrated," Matt Williams said. "She said it's didn't feel like it did when she (tore her ACL). We'll see what happens and hopefully it is just a sprain."

Matt Williams thought it was in his daughter's best interest to take this high school season off to make sure she is fully recovered so she "can win four national championship" at UConn but Gabby is very close to this group of players at Reed High and she wanted to help lead them to a state title.
