Wake Forest will potentially begin the 2015-16 season without starting point guard Codi Miller-McIntyre. Head coach Danny Manning announced on Monday that the 6-foot-3 senior will miss 4-to-6 weeks following surgery on his foot to repair a fracture.
An honorable mention All-ACC selection as a junior, Miller-McIntyre averaged 14.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game last season. Without Miller-McIntyre, Wake Forest can turn to freshman Bryant Crawford to handle point guard responsibilities while their star player recovers.
If Miller-McIntyre is back in the time mentioned in the Wake Forest release, then he shouldn’t miss much game action for the Demon Deacons. It also might give Crawford more run in practice with first-team players and build up chemistry that could help the team down the road.
After a 13-19 record during the 2014-15 season, Wake Forest is hoping for a turnaround year behind four seniors and a couple of solid recruiting classes. The loss of Miller-McIntyre won’t make things easier, but this shouldn’t derail the season.
