Villanova's Wayns has sprained ligament in knee


Villanova guard Maalik Wayns has a sprained medical collateral ligaement ligament in his left knee, the school said.

Wayns did not practice yesterday and underwent an MRI exam. He was injured in Tuesday's win over Providence.

“It will be a day-by-decision,” team orthopedist Dr. Rob Good said in a statement.

Villanova does not play again until next Wednesday night at South Florida and it is possible Wayns could be in the lineup for that game. He did not practice today.

“The No. 1 concern for all of us is Maalik’s long-term health,” coach Jay Wright said. “We will be conservative with his rehab and recovery from this setback.”

Wayns is the Wildcats' leading scorer at 17.8 points and also averages 4.5 assists.
