Pitt has gotten through the season relatively free of injuries. Nasir Robinson missed several games early on, but since then, the team has not battled any significant injuries.
That all changed Saturday when Ashton Gibbs injured his knee in the Cincinnati game. Pitt now faces several games without its best player.
I have to say that on the play he was injured, I was surprised Jamie Dixon didn't take him out to at least see what was wrong. He was hobbling pretty badly (even though it took Rob King, who was calling the game, a little while to see it). But later in the game, I didn't notice that and it seemed like he was fine, so I chalked it up to just minor stiffness.
It is a bit more than that:
Pitt junior guard Ashton Gibbs will miss the Panthers game tomorrow against West Virginia because of an injury to his knee (MCL).
No timetable has been set for his return, but it is anticipated he could be out for as long as two weeks.
