Details are scarce at this point, but John Jenkins suffered an undisclosed injury late in Wednesday's game against the Oklahoma City Blue. Jenkins went to the ground following a drive to the bucket with just over three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. He stayed on the ground for several minutes before being helped up and walking gingerly to the bench area with the help of the training staff.
I don't want to speculate on what the injury might be until we get some official word. Looking at the video, its possible he tweaked his back but its also possible that it was some sort of lower leg injury. Per the broadcast, the Atlanta Hawks had a scout in attendance and he was among those tending to Jenkins on the bench area.
Idaho fell to Oklahoma City 99-95 in the game. Jenkins finished with 15 points and four assists in 30 minutes of action. He was 5-12 from the field including three made three-pointers.
We will pass along more details as soon as they become available.
There wasn't an official update regarding Jenkins in the post game wrap up but the early indication was that he took a knee to the quad area. The early thoughts were that it was not a serious injury and not related to the back injury that sidelined him for most of last season.
