Shabazz Napier a Game Time Decision on Saturday

Shabazz Napier experienced some discomfort during practice on Friday evening, and it will be a game time decision on whether he plays tomorrow against Pittsburgh.

Napier, UConn’s top scorer at 17.1 points per game, injured his left shoulder after being fouled within the early minutes of the Huskies’ 73-58 loss to Louisville Monday night in Hartford. He sat out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday, getting treatment from trainer James Doran, and said Thursday afternoon that he was feeling better and had good range of motion, but was still experiencing pain.

UConn was originally slated to practice in Storrs on Friday morning and fly to Pittsburgh. But in a move to get Napier a little more rest, coach Kevin Ollie moved practice to Friday evening at the Petersen Events Center, where the Huskies (12-4, 2-2 Big East) face Pitt (14-4, 2-3) on Saturday at noon.

Napier went through all of Friday’s practice, which didn’t include much contact, according to UConn spokesman Phil Chardis. He did feel some discomfort in his left shoulder and was somewhat limited. Napier was due to receive more treatment from Doran tonight and Saturday morning to see how his shoulder responded.
