Virginia Basketball Injury Updates on Harris, Tobey and Nolte

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Virginia's big road win at Florida State on Saturday did not come without a cost, as three players -- Joe Harris, Evan Nolte and Mike Tobey -- found themselves injured at one point or another, each needing a medical timeout. In today's ACC teleconference, Virginia Head Coach Tony Bennett addressed the status of all three.

The only player not to return that game was Harris, who logged just two minutes of playing time before coming out of the game for concussion-like symptoms, complaining about his vision after he was hit a couple times (by his own teammates) in a hustle play rebound.

According to Bennett, Harris is not yet cleared to practice with the team, but will be undergoing tests this afternoon to determine his status. Bennett said that they had to let some time pass before they could administer the test, but that Harris said that he feels pretty good at this point.

Nolte dislocated a finger on his non-shooting hand, and this didn't hold him back at all. If anything, Nolte appears to have found his shot, as he hit a big three-point bucket within five seconds of his return on Saturday. No ongoing concern there.

Finally, big man Tobey appeared to have rolled his ankle on Saturday. The coaching staff expects Tobey to be able to play on Wednesday, and does not foresee any issues other than him being a little sore today.

The Hoos take on Wake Forest in Charlottesville on Wednesday. The Demon Deacons just knocked off No. 19 North Carolina. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
