The diagnosis is a sprained knee.
Coach Jim Grobe told the Winston Salem Journal’s Dan Collins: “Tristan has had a bad knee for a while now, and he’s been a day-to-day guy. He’s got a cartilage problem that needs to be fixed. It’s not dangerous. It just locked up on him out there. He’s a guy who has been nursing a problem, not a serious knee problem but one that has been driving him a little crazy now and hopefully we can get him through the season.”
