    LJS-Brian Rosenthal: Diaz battling foot pain, will sit out two games

    We that are Nebraska fans just can't seem to get a break. Kind of explains why Doc hasn't given up on getting Almeida on the court when it's about reached a point that he really should red-shirt and get fully healthy, if he isn't headed there now.

    Nebraska will play its final two nonconference men's basketball games without its second-leading scorer and rebounder.Junior center Jorge Brian Diaz is again experiencing foot pain and will sit out Saturday night's game against Alcorn State and Tuesday night's game against Central Michigan, coach Doc Sadler said Friday.Nebraska then has a week off before hosting Wisconsin on Dec. 27 in its Big Ten Conference debut. In the meantime, Diaz may visit the same foot specialist at Duke University he initially consulted over the summer.Sadler said Diaz played through pain over the latter part of last season, then recovered over the summer. He began experiencing problems again a week to 10 days ago.

    That's not good news...

    But, good programs with good coaches overcome these sort of things. If Doc is as good as you say he is, going .500 in league play should still be very possible, especially since he's had five full years to recruit.

    Doc's bench is deep, he should be prepared and able to overcome player injuries.

    Not to mention he has the best practice facility in the country!

    Anyone watching this Alcorn State game?

    Exactly, the bad thing is we don't have anyone to fill this void...
