Morning links: Donaven Dorsey injures ankle

Timberline High star Donaven Dorsey, who signed with Washington, injured his left ankle in Friday night’s 65-38 defeat at Lincoln High. The 6-6 senior wing could be lost for the season.

After a medical exam, doctors discovered “a chip in his ankle,” Timberline coach Allen Thomas said.

Dorsey will visit an orthopedic doctor Monday to determine the severity of the injury.

“We won’t know until Monday what’s really going on,” Thomas said. “Best-case scenario if he doesn’t need any surgery, then he’ll be out four weeks. If it’s surgery, then his season is over.”

Dorsey averaged about 21 points, eight rebounds, three blocks and three steals in 13 games this season. He had a 44-point performance last month against Kentwood High. Dorsey is a four-star prospect, according to Scout.com. Rivals and ESPN gave him three stars on their five-star rating system.

The injury occurred in the first half when Dorsey went up to block a shot, an opposing player rolled on his ankle, Thomas said. Dorsey had eight points when he left the game.

“I know he’ll bounce back from this,” Thomas said. “It’s not a career-ending injury. He’s a tough kid.”

Timberline is 7-6 overall and 3-3 in the 3A Narrows.
