Update on Darrion Willies’ injury + Rim-Breaking Highlight

It was reported earlier in the week that the basketball career of Summit High senior Darrion Willies may be done due to a spine ailment.

According to Willies, he believes he can return to the court to continue his basketball career following a second opinion with a sports medicine doctor.

“The doctor called me (Jan. 22) after reviewing my x-rays,” Willies said. “He assured me that with some therapy he could get me back on the court.”

The big question surrounding his return to a basketball court, is a matter of when if at all?

“I am hoping by this season but however much time I need to fully recover,” he explained. “The doctor said to rest for a couple of weeks then after a check up he will decide on how therapy will go.”

Willies will still try to make it to Summit’s games to support his teammates.

The team has gone 2-0 in Willies’ absences with victories over league-rivals, Colton and Fontana.
