UConn top scorer Jalen Adams left the Huskies’ game against Temple with an MCL sprain, according to multiple reports.

The injury occurred when Temple’s J.P. Moorman chased a loose ball and rolled onto Adams’ left leg, trapping it underneath his body. Adams was supported off the floor, putting no weight on the injured limb.

Adams will have an MRI tomorrow to determine the extent of the injury.

MCL sprains are graded by severity, as they can often come in conjunction with damage to other ligaments. The MRI will determine Adams’ recovery time.

If the damage to Adams’ knee is limited and not severe, he may be able to return even before the AAC Tournament. A grade 3 sprain—the most severe—would likely end his season.
