Wolfpack’s Abdul-Malik Abu suffers sprained knee ligament

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State’s Abdul-Malik Abu has suffered a sprained knee ligament.

The team announced the senior forward’s injury on its official Twitter account Thursday. Abu won’t need surgery for what the injury described as a Grade 2 sprain of a medial collateral ligament in one of his knees.

The team said it will address Abu’s timeline for recovery “as more information is available.” It’s unclear whether this will affect Abu’s status for the Nov. 10 season opener against VMI.

Abu started 31 games last season, averaging 11.8 points and a team-best 7.0 rebounds.
