Duquesne Forward Amari Kelly Injured at Saint Louis



Duquesne forward Amari Kelly left Duquesne’s game at Saint Louis on Wednesday night with a serious-looking left knee injury.

Kelly was injured after grabbing a rebound with 14:20 to play in the first half. He landed squarely on both of his feet and there was no obvious contact, but Kelly toppled to the floor in a heap, screaming and grabbing his left knee.

Blame this injury on St. Louis’ DJ Foreman. He bodied Kelly as Kelly came down, probably to make him land out of bounds with the rebound. It looked like it caused Kelly to land awkwardly causing the injury.
