Dillon Brooks a ‘game-time decision’ vs. Utah


Oregon junior forward Dillon Brooks missed his fourth game of the season on Saturday, as the Ducks defeated Stanford, 69-52, for their 16th consecutive win.

Brooks was sidelined with a left foot sprain, and is status is still up in the air for Thursday’s contest with Utah, according to Steve Mims of the Register-Guard.

“We will just have to wait and see,” Altman told reporters on Tuesday. “He didn’t do anything Monday and he is going to do some shooting and warming up (Tuesday). He probably will not practice at all the next couple days and then see if he can help us in the game.”

Oregon’s winning streak is definitely in serious jeopardy on Thursday night. The Utes, who have lost to Butler, Xavier, Arizona and UCLA, are starting to look the part of an NCAA Tournament caliber team, yet their resume doesn’t reflect it. Utah is in desparate need of another top-50 win.

The 6-foot-7 Brooks leads the Ducks in scoring at 13.4 points per game.
