No Achilles tear for Elias Harris
Harris, a standout sophomore forward, said he believed he hurt his Achilles tendon late in Gonzaga's loss to San Diego State (No. 25 AP) Tuesday night.
He said he heard something pop and then he couldn't run or jump anymore. Although there was swelling and bleeding behind the Achilles, the MRI confrmed there was no tear.
Harris has been projected as a possible NBA pick after this season.
Few said he had no idea how long Harris would be out. Gonzaga's next game is against No. 3 Kansas State at the Sprint Center in Kansas City in the CBE semifinals on Monday.
The other side of the bracket is No. 1 Duke vs. Marquette. The semifinalists were pre-determined and that's why San Diego State's win over Gonzaga didn't affect the tournament bracket.
