Mason to miss 3 more weeks for Red Storm

St. John’s redshirt senior Anthony Mason Jr. will miss three

more weeks as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury.

Red Storm coach Norm Roberts said Wednesday that an ultrasound

scan taken Monday revealed the hamstring, which Mason injured in

September and re-aggravated on Oct. 16, is not yet fully

healed.

After re-injuring the hamstring in October, it was recommended

that Mason spend 4 to 6 weeks of rehabilitation and strengthening

exercises.

An all-Big East honorable mention selection as a junior in

2007-08, Mason averaged a team-best 14.0 points per game. He

matched that average over the first three games of 2008-09 before a

tendon injury in his right foot ended his season.

The school said it will apply for a medical redshirt for

sophomore guard Quincy Roberts, who has been suffering from

recurring migraine headaches this fall. Roberts has played in four

games this season, well under the 30 percent or less mandated by

the NCAA in applying for a medical redshirt.
