Wilson out for year

Recommended Posts


     Albany, N.Y. – University at Albany men’s basketball standout Jamar Wilson will miss the remainder of the 2003-04 season, as announced on Friday, Dec. 5 by Director of Athletics and Recreation Dr. Lee McElroy.

     Wilson, the 2003 America East Conference Rookie of the Year, has three options following Thursday’s consultation with Dr. Russell Warren, the New York Giants Team Physician and currently the Surgeon-in-Chief at The Hospital for Special Surgery.

     Wilson, who fractured the lower end of his right patella or knee cap on Nov. 6, may have one of two surgeries, as recommended by Dr. Warren, or continue to use a non-operative method. A surgical procedure would either use screws to attach the bone or make use of a second option that would remove the bone fragment. If Wilson elects surgery, the rehabilitation period would last from six to eight weeks.

     Dr. Max Alley, of Capital Region Orthopaedic Group and member of the UAlbany sports medicine staff, first confirmed Wilson’s injury on Nov. 10. MRI results showed the right knee ligaments were normal and there was no meniscal or cartilage damage. Dr. Alley then prescribed a non-operative treatment; however, subsequent X-rays have not shown significant healing.

     Dr. Alley, who has consulted with Dr. Warren during New York Giants Training Camp over the last eight years, then asked for the Giants Team Physician to examine Wilson’s knee earlier this week.

     Wilson, a 6-foot-1 sophomore, was the conference’s second-leading scorer last year with an 18.9 average. He scored 20-plus points on 12 occasions, including a freshman record 39 points against New Hampshire.
