Donaven Dorsey sprains ankle

Turns out Donaven Dorsey, the Timberline High star who signed scholarship papers with Washington, will not need season-ending surgery surgery after all.

The 6-6 senior wing suffered a “really bad ankle sprain,” Timberline coach Allen Thomas said in a text message. He’s expected to return in 2-3 weeks.

Dorsey suffered the injury last Friday during a 65-38 defeat at Lincoln High. The injury occurred in the first half when he went up to block a shot and an opposing player rolled on his ankle, Thomas said. Dorsey had eight points when he left the game.

After a medical exam Friday, Thomas said doctors discovered a chip in his ankle. At the time, Dorsey considered surgery, which would have ended his season. He was re-examined Monday by an orthopedic doctor.

It’s good news for Timberline (7-7), which still has hopes of making the postseason.

Dorsey, who missed Monday’s 45-43 defeat, averaged about 21 points, eight rebounds, three blocks and three steals in the first 13 games. 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.
