BOZICH: Sosa Returns Home After Breaking Foot
LOUISVILLE (WDRB) – Edgar Sosa's push to arrive in the National Basketball Association has been put on hold again. He's back home in New York City after breaking his left foot while playing for the Dominican Republic national team against the U.S. Olympic team in Las Vegas Thursday night.
Sosa was scheduled to stay in Las Vegas and play for Sacramento's team in the NBA Summer League. That was his ticket to make the league after he finished playing in the exhibition game for John Calipari-coached team.
The broken foot has forced Sosa into Plan C.
He flew home and thanked everybody for their support on his Twitter account:
"Thanks for all the support guys, the mentions and all.. I'm blessed to have people that follow my career and pray for me.. Thank You … Also S/O to every1 playing summer league and looking for that opportunity.. I kno that feeling.. Just ball out and let god handle the rest.."
Sosa was relatively injury free during his four seasons at U of L, playing 140 games, performing in at least 33 games every season. After playing overseas one year, Sosa missed last season with a fractured right leg.
No word on quickly Sosa will be able to return to the court.
