Another Injury for St. John's?

Just three days after it was revealed that St. John's forward Anthony Mason Jr. would miss the rest of the season with a torn tendon in his right foot, another long-term injury could be on the horizon for the Red Storm.

In the first half of tonight's game against Eastern Michigan, leading scorer D.J. Kennedy, one of the most versatile players in the Big East, came crashing down to the floor in a heap, grabbing his knee. He needed to be helped off the court and his return is questionable. It seems that the injury did not look good at all and the immediate outlook could be dim.

Kennedy was averaging 17.5 points and 7.5 rebounds coming into the game, and already had seven points and four rebounds when he left the contest.

Update: Kennedy jogged off at the half with a slight limp. The injury forecast could be brighter than originally expected.

Update, Part 2: Kennedy will start the second half. Looks like it's not going to be a problem.
