Virginia PG London Perrantes day-to-day with broken nose, concussion

Tuesday February 24th, 2015

Virginia starting point guard London Perrantes is day-to-day with a broken nose and a mild concussion, the team announced on Monday. 

Perrantes sustained both injuries after colliding with teammate Malcolm Brogdon during the Cavaliers' win over Florida State on Sunday.

Brogdon got three stitches and returned to the game, but Perrantes only returned to the team's bench and never re-entered. 

Virginia is currently playing without junior guard Justin Anderson, who sustained a fractured finger on Feb. 7 and is expected to be out for 4-6 weeks.

The Cavaliers are in first place in the ACC with a 13-1 conference record and 25-1 overall record. They are ranked No. 2 in the latest AP poll.

Virginia plays at Wake Forest on Wednesday before hosting Virginia Tech on Saturday and traveling to Syracuse next Monday.
