Milutinovic update

The Oakland men’s basketball team got some bad news earlier this week. An MRI revealed freshman center Ilija Milutinovic’s foot is broken. The X-ray done on the foot after the initial injury did not show the break, but an MRI did. Milutinovic will now miss at least 3-4 weeks and could be out the remainder of the season. He will be re-evaluated in three weeks.

Milutinovic missed the last four games with the injury. The Serbian native played in 12 games, averaging 1.8 points and 1.5 rebounds in 6.2 minutes per game. The injury leaves the already short-handed Grizzlies with just eight scholarship players as they head to Centenary for Thursday night’s game.
