Cowboys point guard Fred Gulley, the starter through the first seven games, is considered day-to-day with a right shoulder injury.
And OSU coach Travis Ford didn’t sound too optimistic that Gulley would be ready to go Wednesday, when the Cowboys play Tulsa at the BOK Center.
“We’ll see,” Ford said. “It’s not looking real good.”
Gulley underwent surgery on his left shoulder in the offseason. Ford said he wasn’t sure of any cause of this injury, but acknowledged that Gulley was in for tests on the shoulder Monday morning and was scheduled to meet with team orthopedic surgery Dr. Mark Pascale later in the day.
Gulley missed OSU’s double-overtime win over La Salle on Saturday due to the injury, but was able to participate in individual workouts Monday morning.
“It’s not something that he pulled or anything like that,” Ford said. “I don’t think it’s anything he injured. I think it’s just something that has kind of been chronic. It has been going on a while.”
Ray Penn, essentially in a time share at the point with Gulley, scored a season-high 17 points and handed out a career-best six assists in the win over La Salle. Penn was they Cowboys starter last season, before suffering a season-ending leg injury.
