EDS: SUBS 5th graf to CORRECT spelling of Mays.
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -Clemson guard Cliff Hammonds broke the wrist on his non-shooting hand and coach Oliver Purnell does not know if he will be able to play at Georgia Tech on Thursday night.
X-rays taken Monday show Hammonds' right wrist was broken when he fell on it while blocking a shot in the second half of the Tigers' 73-70 victory over Maryland on Sunday night. He played the rest of the game with the injury.
Hammonds will get treatment for the wrist Tuesday then practice with the Tigers (21-7, 9-5 Atlantic Coast Conference). If he can tolerate the pain and play effectively, Purnell said the senior will play against the Yellow Jackets (12-15, 5-8).
``If he cannot play it would be a tough blow, but we have faced this all year. This team is used to dealing with adversity,'' Purnell said.
James Mays has played most of this season with a broken non-shooting hand and missed five games with a hip injury. Sam Perry missed six games in November and December after knee surgery. Demontez Stitt and Trevor Booker have also suffered injuries, but not missed significant time.
Hammonds is second on the team at 11.9 points a game. He also averages 4.0 rebounds and nearly four assists.
Hammonds has played in 128 consecutive games for the Tigers, one short of the school record for games. He also had started a school-record 124 straight games.
