Arkansas basketball news: Khalil Garland out with unspecified medical condition
The Arkansas Razorbacks are set to begin practicing for the upcoming season, but they will have to wait a little longer before they could train alongside freshman Khalil Garland. According to Arkansas Online, team head coach Mike Anderson has announced on Monday that Garland has not been allowed to play by doctors due to an unspecified injury or condition.
Khalil Garland has not been cleared for full participation at this time due to an ongoing health matter,” Anderson said in a statement. “He will continue to get treatment for this condition and the medical staff is optimistic that he will be cleared to return to full participation at a later date.”
This isn’t the first time an issue about Garland’s health has been raised. Back in June, Mike Anderson was also inquired about Garland’s status following reports of the 6-foot-5 guard having undergone some medical tests, but did not provide any specific details pertaining to it, saying that it’s “some privacy stuff there.”
The new NCAA basketball season is just a little over a month away, and hopefully for the Razorbacks, they’ll get to see Garland back just in time to get enough practices to gel with the team and get accustomed to Anderson’s system.
Garland, a native of Little Rock, is listed as the No. 58 prospect by ESPN and had also received an offer to play for the Memphis Tigers before opting to stay close to home.
The Razorbacks open the season at home on November 10 against the Samford Bulldogs.
