Aminu has been out since November 29th with a knee injury. He underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus in January and is likely out for the remainder of the year. Weltman said that Aminu and teammate Jonathan Isaac (knee) are both “working very hard,” but admitted that “there’s a difference of being healthy and then being safely healthy.” Both players are not safely healthy and thus will likely remain on the sidelines to fully recover in time for the start of the 2020-21 regular season set to start in December 2020.
