[Leon] Mitchell and [D.J.] Flick
both underwent surgery on Sunday morning in Regina
and are destined for the nine-game injured list.
According to Flick, the doctors
told him he'll miss 8-10 weeks,
a prognosis that wasn't disputed
by head coach Ken Miller.
"Based on the information we have now,
that sounds realistic," said Miller.
"Based on the information (Saturday)
I would have said it was really an extreme longshot.
He has a broken fibula, they put a screw in
and the doctors say
normal recovery time would be 10 or 11 weeks
so he should be back at the end of the season."
