Alabama’s Latrell Wrightsell shares March Madness injury update for Final Four

Alabama Crimson Tide basketball guard Latrell Wrightsell has been a key contributor for the team’s offense but has missed a few March Madness games due to an injury suffered in the round of 32. Now, there’s a Final Four injury update.

Despite missing games against the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Clemson Tigers, Alabama was able to get by and earn a few wins, but his absence was felt.

After the Elite Eight win that sent the Crimson Tide to its first Final Four in program history, Wrightsell told Blake Byler of Bama Central that he plans on being back for the biggest game in Alabama basketball history against the No. 1 seed UCONN Huskies.

The Crimson Tide is the underdog heading into the Final Four matchup, but they can see it competitive and have a chance at winning if its top contributors are healthy and performing at a high level. Mark Sears, Grant Nelson, Jarin Stevenson and Nick Pringle are difference-makers. Possibly having Wrightsell back would be a huge addition for Nate Oats and his team.
