Adam Allen suffers injury setback



Florida sophomore forward Adam Allen has suffered a sprained knee and is out at least one week,'' Florida coach Billy Donovan said Saturday. Adam had an MRI on Friday night,  which did not show any additional damage.

"It looks like it’s a significant sprain and he’ll probably be out about a week right now,'' Donovan said. "I watched the  film and he didn’t land that awkwardly but he kind of came up.''

Donovan said Allen was playing well before the injury.

"Adam has done a good job and Adam’s a physical, tough and strong kid but with him being out right now that makes it more difficult as well,'' Donovan said. "Adam was doing well. He is what he is. He’s a phenomenal shooter, a great kid and a great teammate and a guy that gives you everything he has.''

Donovan said Allen has had to battle other problems, as well, the past two years.

"He does have some asthma where he’s always battling and trying to get in great shape,'' Donovan said. "The one thing about Adam is that he always gives you everything he has and as a coach you’re so much of the time coaching effort, let’s get going. You’re never coaching effort with Adam, which is something you wish all your players would be  like that.''
