Seton Hall’s Myles Powell injures ankle, could see a ‘prolonged absence’

Seton Hall guard Myles Powell suffered an injury in Saturday’s win over Stony Brook and could miss a considerable amount of time.

Powell appeared to hurt his ankle early in the second half on a drive to the basket. He came up limping and went to the locker room soon after. 

The play that likely aggravated Powell’s ankle is below.

Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard said after the game that the team will be cautious with Powell’s injury and that he could be out for a while.

The news comes at an unforunate time for 12th-ranked Pirates. Seton Hall (2-0) hosts No. 1 Michigan State on Thursday and also plays No. 15 Oregon on Nov. 27 in the first round of the Battle 4 Atlantis. Willard said that there’s “more than likely no chance” that Powell will play against Michigan State.

Shortly after the game, Powell posted a message on Instagram: “God got me. Everything going to be straight. My boys about to hold it down for me.”

Powell was named a preseason All-American and averaged 23.1 points per game last season.
