Pitt’s Jorge Diaz Graham Out Eight Weeks After Latest Surgery

on

It’s been an unfortunate year for Pitt’s Jorge Diaz Graham.

After missing the end of last season due to an ankle injury which required surgery, Diaz Graham has now undergone surgery for a core muscle injury. The surgery took place on Friday, according to Pitt, and he will be sidelined for “an estimated eight weeks.”

“The injury is a small setback for Jorge, but we are confident that he will make a full recovery,” Jeff Capel said in a press release. “Jorge will work hard with our training staff during the recovery process and we expect him to be ready to continue his on-court development later this summer. It is an unfortunate injury, but Jorge has been through this before and will attack the recovery process with a great attitude.”

Diaz Graham appeared in 16 games off the bench this year, averaging just over ten minutes per game. He made 16 of his 44 attempts from the field, including nine of his 31 three-point tries (29%). Diaz Graham averaged 3.5 points per game, and grabbed 40 rebounds on the season. He had 12 assists and 11 turnovers on the year.

As a freshman in 2022-23, Diaz Graham averaged 3.1 points per game, appearing in 31 games and starting once. He hit 12 of his 34 three-point attempts as a rookie (35%). He played ten minutes in Pitt’s NCAA Tournament game against Iowa State, scoring two points and grabbing five rebounds. Against Xavier, he had seven points.

frequently injured big starts to become a concern for this(or any) team

can his brother dodge the genetic predisposition? hope so otherwise the depth of this year’s team takes a meaningful hit that while most everyone is sold on the idea Pitt 2025 is ready to break through, I’m far from convinced

Delalic get was huge and this makes it even more but Zach NEEDS to show up

anyone else wish Bub didn’t quite have the year he did and maybe needed another year to show his potential? 🙂
