Salter’s left foot placed in cast

Junior point guard Anthony Salter will have to sit out at least the next two weeks with a partially torn plantar fascia in his left foot.

Salter’s foot was placed in a cast on Wednesday after an MRI revealed the partial tear. He said the cast will have to stay on his foot for the next 10 to 14 days.

“It gets you down a little bit, but the fact that its only going to be 10 to 14 days, I’m going to try and stay positive,” he said.

Salter, who is in his first season at Hawaii after transferring from Iowa Western Community College, is battling senior Hiram Thompson and freshman Bobby Miles for the starting role at point guard.

“I’ll be back before they even know I left,” Salter said. “It’s going to be all good … we’re still making strides as a team, so I can’t be nothing but positive.”

Senior forward Bill Amis had to sit out all of the 2009-10 season with a torn plantar fascia. Salter’s injury is a partial tear, while Amis’ was a complete tear.

“They’re stabilizing it with the cast, so we’ll see how he responds when they take it off,” Hawaii head coach Gib Arnold said. “It’s torn, but not completely torn, so hopefully we get him back sooner rather than later.”
