Speaking Wednesday, coach Josh Pastner declined to make a more precise projection for his return, saying that “we’ll know a lot more over the next 10 days.” It does mean, at the least, that Okogie will miss the team’s season opener against No. 21 UCLA in Shanghai on Nov. 10. Tech’s next game will be at McCamish Pavilion against Bethune-Cookman on Nov. 19, which is 18 days from Wednesday.
“It’s going to be a minimum couple weeks for sure,” Pastner said Wednesday, a day before his team plays an exhibition game against NAIA Faulkner at McCamish. “I don’t know how long. A lot of it’s going to depend on his healing.”
