    I'm at a Buffalo Wild Wings. No audio. Any word yet on what the injury is?

    I just saw on an Arizona board that Spencer was hurt. I'll be praying for the guy, he has a bright future ahead of him. I'd hate for it be anything serious.

    Injury was defined as scary to me. I hate the non-contact ones.

    It's not good. Don't even get your hopes up for this season.

    His face said it all. Those were tears of frustration.

    Who said it? I hate when people go into amateur doctor mode. Not saying it won't end up being ultimately right.

    Mark Johnson on the radio right now "Dinwiddie overheard in the huddle telling the team, I'm done for the year, you're going to have to do it without me"

    Tad will certainly be earning every penny of his HC money for the rest of the season. We will see what this team is made of and just how good some of these youngsters can be.

    Well I hope he's wrong but he'd obviously know his body better than anyone.

    Re: Spencer Injury

    It is pretty obvious when it happens. You hear a pop and your knee starts to swell.

    So this is way to early. What does this do his draft chances? He obviously won't be ready for any team workouts.

    Wow that is a shame for everyone involved. Out of curiosity would this cause him to stay another year to try and regain his NBA value.

    I was asking the same thing in the game thread. For a guy who wasn't a lottery lock to begin with, that could be a huge blow. I would say it's suddenly 50-50 or better that he comes back next year.

    If he can still get drafted in the first round he need to go.

    Im thinking he's going to have to stay around. Anything serious will be months of rehab, and while spencer is great, He's not quite at the nerlens noel level where you can blow your knee and still be a lottery pick/first round choice.

    Other question is, who runs the point? Booker? Stalzer? Talton? Hopkins?

    The most important thing though, is that I hope it's nothing serious and he gets better. Tough break for spencer, and I feel bad for the kid.

    I am absolutely sick to my stomach. This is the most devastating injury I have seen at CU in the last 25 years. This season is probably ruined, it will encourage the Josh Scott's of the world to leave early if at all possible, and you have to expect it will negatively impact our 20154-2105 recruiting class. This simply could not happen, but vintage bad CU luck, it did. I feel terrible for Dinwiddie and Boyle. It's nothing short of devastating.
