The Louisville Cardinals will have their junior center Gorgui Dieng for Saturday’s game against rival Kentucky, coach Rick Pitino told CBSSports.com.
According to the CBS Sports article, Dieng, who has been out since Nov. 23 with a broken left wrist, returned to team practice Wednesday and is expected to see considerable action when No. Louisville takes on the Wildcats.
Dieng, a 6-foot-11 big man who set a single-season school record last season with 128 blocked shots, had to have a screw inserted into his scaphoid bone after injuring himself against Missouri, the article reported
While Dieng was sidelined, 6-10 sophomore center Zach Price, 6-9 senior forward Stephan Van Treese and 6-8 freshman center Montrezl Harrell stepped in to fill the void.
Dieng is averaging 8.2 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks for the Cardinals (5-1).
