WVU’s Farrakhan, Kriisa Both Warming Up and Dressed vs. Baylor

WVU guards Noah Farrakhan (ankle) and Kerr Kriisa (shoulder) are both warming up and dressed about an hour before the Baylor game. Farrakhan and Kriisa have been evaluated throughout the week and looks like they will not miss any action.

Farrakhan and Kriisa both went down in the final minutes of the TCU loss on Monday, on the same play. Kriisa was able to walk off and sit on the bench while Farrakhan needed help sitting down. WVU interim HC Josh Eilert was concerned more about Farrakhan right away based on how he got hurt.

“First impressions, you talk to the trainers, it doesn’t seem like it’s nearly as bad as it probably looked in person,” Eilert said. “I was a little worried with Noah. Kerr has had his shoulder injuries that he’s fought over the course of his career. Whatever happened with that screen is concerning. Noah’s issue doesn’t seem to be nearly as bad as what it probably looked on the floor. I was worried that maybe that was an Achilles or something like that the way he went down. But hopefully, it’s just an ankle and a light ankle sprain and we can work through that this week.”

A WVU Athletics spokesperson mentioned on Friday that Kriisa and Farrakhan were day-to-day.

Kriisa (suspension) and Farrakhan (waiver) both missed games early in the season but they were non-injury related. The guard duo has been healthy on the floor when available.

Kriisa is averaging 12.1 points, 2.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists on 43% shooting from three. Farrakhan is recording 9.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.
