University of Louisville forward/center Anas Mahmoud will miss the remainder of the Cardinals’ 2015-16 season after suffering a right ankle sprain in practice today.
Mahmoud stepped on another player’s foot to cause the sprain. An x-ray taken at Jewish Hospital was negative for a break. With an estimated 3-6 weeks recovery time, he will miss the Cardinals’ six remaining games. He will be in a boot and on crutches for the immediate future.
A sophomore from Cairo, Egypt, Mahmoud has averaged 3.2 points and 3.0 rebounds this season with 29 blocked shots, averaging 14 minutes a game during the Cardinals’ ACC games. He has blocked three shots in three of the last seven games. Mahmoud scored a career-high 15 points at Georgia Tech in January.
