On Wednesday, the Hartford Courant reported that UConn center Enosch Wolf has suffered yet another concussion.
The injury is his third concussion within the past year and an unfortunate situation that will likely sideline the 7-foot-1 low post threat for a considerable amount of time.
The injury occurred recently in practice and more details are expected to emerge soon.
Following his most recent setback, Wolf was forced away from the court twice last year as a sophomore. He suffered his first concussion in December of 2011 and then again in March following a dunk attempt in which he slipped and landed on his head.
With the ongoing attention that concussions are receiving in sports today, UConn officials and personnel will more than likely be very careful with Wolf moving forward.
While there is no timetable for how long the big man will be held out, the Huskies are preparing to move forward as the season dons closer. UConn is entering their first season under the guidance of newly-appointed head coach Kevin Ollie after Jim Calhoun retired just last month.
The Huskies are banned from any postseason play in 2013 due to low APR scores, so expectations are up in the air. Ollie has plenty to work with in the back court this season, but the losses as a whole will leave UConn in search of new contributors.
Wolf averaged only 1.3 minutes per game a season, but as mentioned he was sidelined for most of the season. The Huskies open up the 2012-13 season on Nov. 9 from Germany. UConn will face Michigan State from Ramstein Air Base.
Ironically enough, Wolf is a German native, so being unable to play in the game on his home soil would be even more unfortunate.
