Louisville C Anas Mahmoud out for the season


Louisville Cardinals sophomore Anas Mahmoud sprained his ankle in practice yesterday and will miss the rest of the season, according to an announcement from the university, via NBC Sports.

A 7-foot-1 center from Egypt, Mahmoud averaged 3.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 13.7 minutes per game during the 2015-16 season. That may not seem like much, but his long and lean build gives him a high ceiling.

That said, though a sprained ankle may seem like a mild injury with Louisville having six games remaining in the regular season, let’s not forget that the Cardinals recently self-imposed a postseason ban from both the ACC and NCAA tournaments as a result of an ongoing investigation into an alleged prostitution scandal that has rocked the program since before the start of the season.

Thus, with nothing to play for, Louisville is clearly just considering Mahmoud’s long-term health rather than rush him back in the hopes of a deep tournament run that isn’t happening this year.
