Cade Cunningham goes down vs. Baylor
Cunningham went down in the final minute of No. 17 Oklahoma State’s game in Waco on Thursday night as he was dribbling up the left side of the court and stepped on the foot of Baylor’s Davion Mitchell.
Cunningham, clearly in pain, eventually was helped off to the sidelines and didn’t return.
Cade Cunningham hurt in Oklahoma State 81-70 loss to Baylor. Cowboys HC Mike Boynton said, “I didn’t see any anything unusual other than he stepped on a guy’s foot and rolled it. He’ll get an evaluation, and as soon as we know more obviously pass it to you all.” pic.twitter.com/DFwPaEp6Gz

Cunningham finished the night with 24 points, seven rebounds and four assists. He’s averaged 19.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists so far this season, his first with the Cowboys.
Thursday’s loss snapped a five game win streak for Oklahoma State, which included back-to-back wins against No. 16 Oklahoma and a huge win over No. 18 Texas Tech. Though his presence would undoubtedly be helpful against West Virginia on Saturday, Boynton could easily elect to sit Cunningham to ensure his health for the Big 12 tournament next week and the NCAA tournament.
And, of course, his status in the NBA draft is on Boynton’s mind, too — as in her latest mock draft.
“If he’s OK, he’ll continue to work with us. If it’s anything more serious than it feels right now, then we’ll evaluate how we move forward.”
