Morrow Sidelined by Back Injury

Sept. 22, 2006

ATLANTA – Anthony Morrow, Georgia Tech’s leading scorer from the 2005-06 basketball team, has a stress fracture in his back and will be sidelined for six to eight weeks, head coach Paul Hewitt said Friday.

The injury was diagnosed earlier this week after the 6-5 junior from Charlotte, N.C., complained of back pain, and Morrow is not able to participate in individual instruction or practice. He will be able to undergo conditioning on a bicycle and underwater until he returns to the court.

“We have decided to shut him down and give him every chance to be 100 percent healthy before we start the regular season on Nov. 10,” said Hewitt. “Anthony had a great summer and made significant progress in many areas. Hopefully, this will not set him back too far.”

Morrow averaged 16.0 points a game last year to lead the Yellow Jackets, and paced the Atlantic Coast Conference in three-point shooting percentage (42.9).
