Ahmad Nivins ha sido operado

Just finished reading The Miracle of St. Anthony by Adrian Wojnarowski for the 4th time. A great book I never tire of reading about a guy who truly has a basketball vocation and has touched so many lives, and continues to save St. Anthony High School and Catholic secondary education for youths in Jersey City -- Coach Bob Hurley. From page 361;

"They (recruiters) were all chasing the rapdily developing Ahmad Nivins. Suddenly, coaches in the Big East, ACC, Big Ten, Pac-10 and SEC were hot on his trail, but Ahmad was nothing if not loyal, and underdog national power St. Joseph's University stayed at the top of his list. After all, Martelli had started recruiting him before anyone else. Sean had encouraged him to take the biggest offer that came his way, but Sean and Ahmad had come to St. Atnhony with different objectives. Ahmad loved the tight-knit St. Joe's campus, the genuine coach, Martelli, and the university's well-respected business school."

So sorry to hear about his injury -- a quick and full recovery to our Ahmad Nivins.

Nivins (Manresa), operado de su lesión en la rodilla izquierda, estará unos seis meses de baja

Para cubrir su ausencia el Suzuki Manresa ha fichado al veterano Larry Lewis, de 40 años

El pívot del Suzuki Manresa Ahmad Nivins ha sido operado, en la Clínica Sant Josep de Manresa, de la lesión que sufrió en la rodilla izquierda durante el partido frente al Ayuda en Acción Fuenlabrada y estará, como mínimo, seis meses de baja.

La operación de Nivins, a cargo del doctor Ramon Serra, consistió en una plastia en los ligamientos cruzados y en el ligamiento lateral interno, además de una sutura meniscal del menisco interno y externo. El pívot estadounidense permanecerá hospitalizado todavía unos días.

Ante la imposibilidad de contar con Nivins durante, al menos, los próximos seis meses, el Suzuki Manresa ha fichado al veterano ala-pívot Larry Lewis, de 40 años, 2,01 metros de altura y procedente del Unicaja de Málaga, hasta el final de temporada.
