Arizona basketball: Allonzo Trier shoots down report of his return date

Not even Trier knows when he’s returning, so everyone should stop speculating

It was late Sunday night, and all of the sudden the Arizona Wildcats twitterverse perked up when Tucson television broadcaster David Kelly tweeted out this bold take on the Allonzo Trier situation.

Why this date? Because some people have decided that Trier will be suspended for 50% of Arizona’s scheduled games, and Colorado is game number 16 of 31.

Well, Trier himself spoke out about this report and anyone who got their hopes up probably shouldn’t have.

There’s also this from Scout’s Jason Scheer, who is admittedly closer to the Trier camp than anyone else in the Arizona media.

This isn’t the first time that Trier has had to clear up a misunderstanding regarding his situation this week. ZonaZealots wrote this about an alleged subliminal message the Arizona guard sent to fans, and well, it’s not. Not at all.

It’s understandable why people are going to constantly speculate on every little thing Trier does. Every Arizona fan wants him back on the court as soon as possible, especially with the team’s current lack of depth.

But to speculate on this constantly and openly is misguided and reckless. Fans will get frustrated, but this is a situation where there’s no positive news until Trier is actually on the floor.

That’s just the reality right now.
