“I’ll be back Saturday,” he said Tuesday.
Gibbs, who injured his left MCL after grabbing a rebound in a Feb. 5 win over Cincinnati, must still pass a doctor’s evaluation.
A team source confirmed that Gibbs will “definitely” be back on Saturday.
“He never came out when he was hurt in the game anyway, so he’s never felt he’s been hurt anyway,” Pitt coach Jamie Dixon said Sunday at the PrimeTime Shootout at Kean University. “He’s been ready to go since the injury.”
ZAGSBLOG first reported Feb. 6 that he would miss 10-14 days. The 14-day window would end on the day of the St. John’s game.
