A break for Gorgui Dieng, but not a good one.

An x-ray taken at Jewish Hospital Sunday night revealed a broken scaphoid bone in his left wrist.  His prognosis will be updated after further examination from a hand specialist on Monday.

Dieng fell while taking a charge early in the first half of the University of Louisville’s 84-61 victory over No. 13 Missouri on Friday in the Battle 4 Atlantis.  He returned to the game and played 22 more minutes with his wrist taped.
