Guard Todd Fletcher injured his foot late in Air Force’s loss against TCU on Wednesday and may not be able to play Saturday against UNLV.
Air Force coach Jeff Reynolds said Fletcher didn’t practice today, he isn’t planning on having Fletcher do anything Friday, and will be a “game-time decision” for Saturday’s game against UNLV. Air Force doesn’t think Fletcher broke any bones in his foot, so the Falcons are initially calling the injury a sprained foot. Fletcher was in a walking boot today, Reynolds said.
“They say he’s pretty sore,” Reynolds said.
Fletcher suffered the injury with about six minutes left in Wednesday’s game.
“He played on it, but he was hobbling,” Reynolds said.
If Fletcher can’t play, freshman Chris Carter would start, Reynolds said. Shawn Hempsey would probably get more time off the bench.
Fletcher averages a team-high 30.5 points per game, averages 9.7 points and has a team-best 56 assists.
