Senior point guard Grant Gibbs will miss up to four weeks with a dislocated right kneecap.

Luckily, there is no ligament damage to the knee. There were initial concerns that Gibbs had torn his ACL or MCL.

“It wasn’t as bad as they anticipated,” Gibbs told GoCreighton.com. “It’s just a dislocated kneecap, so no ACL, no MCL. I’m looking at four-to-five weeks, but hopefully it will be sooner than that.”

Gibbs injured the knee in the first half on Tuesday night at DePaul.

He wasn’t the only one to get hurt during the game. All-american forward Doug McDermott sprained a joint in his shoulder, but he finished the game and shouldn’t miss any game-time moving forward.

    I like Creighton (even if white boys can’t jump!) because they do it with 4-year student athletes and are good consistently.

    In the off-season the Bluejays thought they would have to go without Gibbs, then he got a waiver. Now they will have to go without Gibbs anyway (for a while). Lets see if the coach’s planning will work.

    I hope the team has a great trainer/doctor and McDermott is ready.
