Jenny Moshak, University of Tennessee Associate Athletics Director for Sports Medicine, announced an update regarding Lady Vol basketball rising sophomore Amber Gray.
One week ago, on July 2, 2009, Drs. Greg Mathien and Russell Betcher, UT team orthopaedists, performed arthroscopic surgery on Gray's left shoulder to repair her posterior capsule and labrum.
"Amber had a successful shoulder surgery," said Moshak. "However, she experienced some post-operative complications unrelated to her shoulder. At this time, she is still undergoing diagnostic testing and will require further rehabilitation.
"We have determined that the best course of action would be to transfer her to a local hospital near her hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio."
Gray, a 6-1 forward from West Chester, Ohio, injured her shoulder during a Lady Vols' post-NCAA practice session. During her freshman season, Gray played in 27 games. She averaged 2.7 ppg and 1.9 rpg in 7.6 minutes per contest.
