Charleston's Parham out indefinitely

Posted Thursday, December 27, 2012, at 1:51 PM

Charleston's all-state captain Ryan Parham did not dress out for the top-seeded Bluejays game against Delta this morning.

His team did just fine without him in routing the Bobcats 107-24, but it will have to continue to play without him for an indefinite amount of time.

I talked to Parham after the game and he said he has both an ankle and a hamstring injury. The ankle injury happened a couple weeks ago while he originally injured his hamstring a couple years ago. It just recently starting bothering him again.

Parham walked without crutches or any noticeable limp and even shot around with his team at halftime, so I didn't figure he'd miss much time but he seemed genuinely unsure if he would play tomorrow and when he'd make his return.
