Melo Trimble suffered an ankle injury in Maryland basketball’s exhibition win over Catawba on Saturday, but all signs are that he should be good to go when the Terps open their regular season against American on Friday.
Maryland's Melo Trimble (ankle) will be fine for Friday's opener against American as long as there are no setbacks, per Mark Turgeon.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) November 7, 2016
Rothstein is generally a guy to trust on these things, and this jives with what the team said during and after Saturday’s exhibition.
“Melo’s going to be fine,” head coach Mark Turgeon said after the game. “If this was a big game, Melo would’ve played. I guess they call it a grade-one ankle sprain, so we’ve got to get him ready for Friday.”
Maryland tips off against American at Xfinity Center this Friday at 7 p.m. Looks like we can expect Trimble to be among the Terps’ starting five.
