Georgia Tech freshman guard Tristan Maxwell will be out of action into November because of a foot injury he suffered in August in a pickup game. Maxwell, named the North Carolina high-school player of the year as a senior, required surgery to repair the injury.
“He hasn’t been able to participate in anything team-wise,” coach Josh Pastner told the AJC. “When he’s fully healthy, we’ll get him back on the floor. It’s nothing serious, other than time.”
The Yellow Jackets began preseason practice Saturday. Pastner left open the possibility that Maxwell could have to miss games, saying that his precise return date is to be determined. Because of COVID-19, the official start date of the season has been pushed to Nov. 25, from Nov. 10.
