UTEP big man Matt Willms tweeted an update on his status as his recovery timetable marks three weeks on Thursday.
I shot around yesterday for first time in 2 1/2 weeks with two shoes on. Felt really weird, but at the same time felt good to be back!— Matt Willms (@m_willms4) February 17, 2015
Rehab and training are on full effect here on out.— Matt Willms (@m_willms4) February 17, 2015
Willms has been nursing a stress fracture in his right foot since the end of January, and appears to be on track for a full return in the next couple of weeks according to his tweets.
The seven footer from Ontario, Canada has played in 20 games this year, and is second on the team with 22 blocks, and is averaging 6.0 points per game, and 4.5 rebounds per game this season.
