Earlier this summer, Pitt sophomore Jorge Diaz-Graham injured his foot in practice, leaving him out of action while the team traveled to Spain in August for its foreign tour.
Now, as Pitt approaches the first week of official practice, Diaz-Graham is working his way back into the mix and recovering from the injury. A Pitt spokesperson told Pittsburgh Sports Now on Monday that Diaz-Graham is “progressing well” from the injury. Pitt also told PSN that “he [Diaz-Graham] is on schedule to be back in full capacity in early October.”
On July 22, Jeff Capel told Pat Bostick on 93.7 The Fan that Diaz-Graham would be out for six weeks and that the injury was “nothing long term.”
Diaz-Graham is a 6-foot-11 stretch forward who scored 2.9 points and grabbed 2.2 rebounds per game in his freshman campaign. The sophomore came to Pitt along with his brother two years ago after playing post-grad ball for IMG Academy.
