Quinn Cook Injury Less Serious Than Expected, Will Only Miss 4-5 Weeks

Quinn Cook, a local product who is one of the top basketball recruits in the Class of 2011, got some very, very good news today. His knee injury, which could have potentially caused him to miss his entire senior season, was less serious than expected. 

According to Fanhouse's David Steele, Cook suffered a partially torn meniscus, rather than a torn ACL, and will only miss 4-5 weeks. This should put him on track to play when Oak Hill Academy, his current team, kicks off its season.

Cook only partially tore the meniscus cartilage in his knee, rather than the ACL as originally feared, and will miss five weeks at the most, a source with knowledge of the procedure confirmed Friday.     

Cook's coach, Steve Smith, confirmed on his Twitter account that Cook will only miss 4-5 weeks. He had the surgery today.

Cook, who transferred from DeMatha to play at Oak Hill this year, is still undecided on his college choice.
