Amida Brimah to Have Shoulder Surgery on Friday

Amida Brimah met with doctors Wednesday, and the decision has been made to have surgery on his left shoulder. The surgery, to repair a torn labrum, will be performed on Friday at the UConn Health Center in Farmington.

Nana Baafi, Brimah's legal guardian, noted that while surgery wasn't a necessity, it was really the best way to go about things.

"He was battling with it the whole season," said Baafi. "If he doesn’t do it, it’s gonna keep coming. So, he might as well just do it, so he can be healthy ... He could have fought through it, but it’s not advisable. His health is more important. If something else happened, it might get worse."

Baafi said the shoulder injury is the same that caused UConn's Rodney Purvis to undergo surgery on his left shoulder in mid-December. Purvis had a torn labrum and was sidelined for about four months.

"The brighter side is, it’s better for him to come back 100 percent than to go through the whole season again 80-90 percent," said Baafi. "But with the kind of kid he is, with his work ethic, he’ll be fine."

*** Meanwhile, according to a source, Leon Tolksdorf is considering transferring to Bryant University. He was on the Smithfield, R.I. campus on Wednesday.
