    FWIW, not what I heard.

    No better source than Kispert, yet heard game time decision tomorrow. M

    Possibly a recent setback?

    I couldn't agree more. Especially in this case. Tillie's basketball future is at stake here. When he's ready, scrimmaging in a Zag scrimmage will be a really good test to know when he's "ready." I'm sure they are as physical as any game.

    This is what I heard as well. And no, I have heard nothing about a recent setback. Also, keep in mind that we don't want whatever opponent Tillie returns against to prepare for him. As such, Why would Kispert say anything other than his vague quote. I would not want him saying "We have a big weapon coming back on Friday."

    Perfect, in time for the "Top 20 stretch" of UW, Zona, UNC. Only the last one at home...

    If he isn't back before December it must be out of caution. I know he was dressed and warmed up before North Dakota and he has been practicing. Now, they may figure it's not worth playing him tonight from a risk/need standpoint which is understandable.

    I was wondering why CK would be saying anything at all about it. Only for the coach or Athletic Department to release info about a player’s health / expected return.

    Is there an exact quote/interview clip somewhere of Kispert saying this? I've seen it elsewhere but without the "injury" part. If that is the case maybe he is referring to Ravet coming back from leave of absence?

    Just an accident.

    It wasn't a "release," and it was very vague.

    Not a problem for CK

    I feel so bad for poor Tillie. Injuries are heartbreaking.

    Kispert was pretty vague, and the kid can't predict the future. I hope we get to see Tillie sooner rather than later but I also don't want him rushed back. Wait as long as needed so that once he's back he can play the rest of the season and lead us into March.

    I the mean time I like the extra playing time and game pressure the freshman are getting.

    Sheesh. another optimist ... always looking for the bright side of things. Just kidding ... you are absolutely correct about the value of Tillie's minutes not being wasted. Probably giving more PT to guys like Timme and Watson, maybe even Ayayi.

    Coaching 101, CK. No intel to the opponent.

    Wonder if Kispert meant “We still have a big weapon coming back from injury within a couple of weeks.”

    Hope he takes as long as he needs -- this is his last shot to show what he can do on the college court before he takes his next steps. Would love to have a 100% healthy Tillie in the dance-- he is a difference maker.

    My guess, and it's just that - a guess, is that Killian will start (or come off the bench) on 11/19. My rationale is that Killian will more likely start playing at a home game rather than at an away game. I also think Killian will want some court/game time before 12/18. I've no idea how Killian's healing from the knee surgery is going. In watching Killian while at games I cannot tell that he's favoring one leg over the other. He moves about very well and his facial expressions show zip for worries. Killian appears to be thoroughly enjoying watching his pals play ball

    I sure hope we (fans) don’t have to go through this all year...heart breaks for the kid, but he is SO injury prone. There is nothing to demonstrate he can stay healthy for a full year. I just hope the team can grow without him.
