Exclusive: Stephenson Injury Update

Railsplitter fans, you can stop holding your breath now. After speaking to Lincoln coach Dwayne "Tiny" Morton on Saturday afternoon, it appears as though Lance Stephenson's ankle injury on Saturday was minor.
"He's going to be practicing a little bit today," said Morton, who added that it's possible that the junior could play on Sunday in a scrimmage against Paterson Catholic (NJ).
Stephenson sprained his ankle during the third quarter of a scrimmage against Bishop Loughlin on Friday, as previously reported by NYC Hoops. Morton said that it is likely that Stephenson will be able to play in their season opener on Tuesday against Thomas Jefferson High School.
