 CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -Bone scans revealed that James Mays' hip is sprained, not fractured, and Clemson coach Oliver Purnell said the senior forward may be able to play again before the end of the month.
Mays told reporters Tuesday night he thought the hip was fractured and he was likely out four-to-six weeks. He was in street clothes and walking with crutches as he watched his team beat Purdue 61-58.
After the game, Purnell said he wanted to wait for the results of the bone scans before accepting the worst case scenario.
``We are obviously encouraged by the results of James' bone scans,'' Purnell said Wednesday.
Mays will talk to reporters again Thursday, the school said.
Purnell hopes to have Mays back on the court by the time the team heads to Puerto Rico for the San Juan Shootout, beginning Dec. 20. The Tigers play just twice more before the tournament.
Mays is averaging 15.5 points and 7.3 rebounds this season.
Clemson got more good news Wednesday, when doctors cleared Sam Perry for more activity in practice. The senior forward had knee surgery Nov. 16.
Purnell said he expects Perry will be back for the Puerto Rico tournament.
``He is awfully important to this team in terms of not only his defensive ability, but also more importantly, his leadership,'' Purnell said.
Perry came into this season averaging 4.6 points a game and played 101 games in a row before his injury.
