Brody Greig hadn’t practiced all week.

According to Greig’s coach, Paul Eberhardt, the point guard’s knee was the “size of a blimp” on Wednesday, and that he had to have it drained and then take antibiotics.

When his Langara College Falcons hosted the Camosun College Chargers on Friday November 29, Greig sat the game out and watched his teammates cruise to a 110-78 victory.

Eberhardt tweeted later that night that Greig was “doubtful” for Saturday’s game against the Vancouver Island University Mariners.
