Sophomore center Kiah Stokes missed her sixth game of the season today due to a stress reaction in her right shin. She was in full uniform and went through some warms-up prior to UConn’s 87-62 win over Syracuse at the XL Center, but was unable to play.
Stokes re-aggravated the injury during practice Friday.
UConn coach Geno Auriemma said Stokes, who had two points, six rebounds and three blocks in 12 minutes against No. 15 Louisville Tuesday, will be day-to-day moving forward.
“I think it’s going to be one of those every day we come to Gampel and see what happens,’’ Auriemma said. “I don’t think there’s going to be a time when she’s going to be 100 percent the rest of the season. It’s just a matter of how much can she manage what it is that … Some days it’s going to better, some days it’s going to be worse. And we’re just going to have to go and play it by ear.’’
