All Kalin Lucas can do is sit and watch for the time being.
The Iowa Energy guard and ¬†former Michigan State standout is currently in the recovery process after breaking his thumb during a NBA D-League game against Tulsa earlier this month.
“As far as right now, I have a cast on that I’m going to have on for four weeks,” Lucas told the State Journal on Tuesday. “After that, that’s when I’m back in the gym. I’ll do rehab, and after rehab I’ll be back on the court.¬†As far as right now there’s really not too much I can do except just keep working out on my legs and doing core and doing conditioning.”
Lucas can’t pinpoint a specific date for his return but is shooting for late March. The 6-foot-1 Lucas is averaging 15.6 points, 5.2 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 28 games (20 starts) with the Energy this season.
