Hunter's MRI negative for Georgia State

R.J. Hunter will be a game-time decision for the Georgia State men's basketball team after an MRI on Monday revealed he didn't suffer a stress fracture in his right foot.

Hunter injured the foot with less than four minutes remaining in Saturday's loss to Delaware.

Hunter will be held out of Tuesday's practice and Wednesday's shoot-around. The Panthers (6-11) will take on William and Mary at 7 p.m. at the Sports Arena in the "Barefoot for Bare Feet" game to honor Samaritan's Feet, a charity coach Ron Hunter, R.J.'s dad, has worked with for several years.

Just a freshman, Hunter is already arguably Georgia State's most important player.

He leads the Panthers in points per game (15.9) and is second in rebounds (5.9). He has been named the Colonial Athletic Association Rookie of the Week four times this season.

Ron Hunter said on Saturday that there's a chance R.J. could be held out of practices for the rest of the year.

Should R.J. not play, Hunter said it may mean more minutes for Cameron Solomon and Ryann Green.

R.J. suffered a stress fracture in his left foot in high school in Indianapolis in 2011.
