Virginia Tech Sports Information Release

BLACKSBURG, Va. – Virginia Tech forward Marshall Wood suffered a fractured third metatarsal of the left foot in Saturday’s loss to Georgia Southern. No timetable has been set, but Wood is expected to return later this season. The injury will not require surgery.

“I feel extremely bad for Marshall,” head coach James Johnson said. “This young man has been playing well. He was really starting to come into his own and playing with confidence. He has been helping the team in a lot of different ways. This is a set back to Marshall and a set back to our team.

“Right now, we wish him the best for a speedy recovery. I don’t know when to expect him back, but he will be with the team in all team activities and be involved in everything we do.”

Wood, a freshman from Rustburg, Va., has appeared in all 10 games for the Hokies this season. He is averaging 5.8 points and 4.5 rebounds per game in 18.3 minutes played per game.

  1. Down to 7 scholly players. This was a big pre-season worry. Who’s next?–losing Wood puts pressure on the rest.

    1. I put that in a post when (I think it was) Hudson had a foot injury of some sort, in conjunction with Raines. I don’t remember all the detail, but I was able to find a trail all the way back to Greg Brink, a C/F from 1986/87 or so. It is, without a doubt, “The Official Injury of Virginia Tech Basketball” and transcends multiple court and practice court surfaces.

  2. Deja vu all over again. We can’t catch a break on injuries. Any big football players available for basketball? We could use a few big bodies.
