Here is the latest news and possible return dates for UConn players..

Jan. 20, 3:30 p.m.

Head coach Geno Auriemma said Friday that Azzi Fudd will have no weight bearing on her right knee for the next two weeks and then will be reevaluated. 

The team said earlier Friday that Fudd reinjured her knee against Georgetown on Jan. 15. Fudd missed the Huskies' game on the road against Seton Hall on Jan. 17 as she underwent tests on campus.

Auriemma added that Fudd did not tear anything and will not require surgery. He added that her return to the court will be a “wait-and-see” situation.

Sophomore guard Azzi Fudd left the Huskies' game against Georgetown on Jan. 15 after reinjuring her knee and there will be no timeline for her return to the court, the team announced Friday.

Fudd did not travel with the team on Jan. 17 when they played Seton Hall in South Orange, New Jersey. Instead, she stayed on campus to undergo further testing on her right knee.

“We’ll know a lot more when we get back," head coach Geno Auriemma said after the win. "We’ll have to go from there with whatever that is.”

Fudd missed eight games earlier this season after injuring her right knee against Notre Dame on Dec. 4. She returned to action on Jan. 11 against St. John's and scored 14 points in 20 minutes. Fudd played only 12 minutes against Georgetown before colliding with the Hoyas’ Ariel Jenkins. She stayed on the bench for the rest of the game with an ice pack on her knee.

Fudd is averaging 17.9 points, 2.2 assists, and 1.7 rebounds per game over 27.9 minutes in nine contests (seven starts) this season.
