UConn forward Morgan Tuck will be out the next two weeks due to knee soreness, per multiple reports.

Here's some of the report from the New Haven Register:

"We've been going back and forth, a day off and then practice, a day off and then practice, then play a game and two days off," UConn coach Geno Auriemma said after Tuesday's practice. "We are nickel and diming it so Rosemary (Ragle, UConn's athletic trainer) and Dr. (Robert) Arciero talked about it and (agreed)just give it two weeks and see what it does with rest so she doesn't have to put up with this crap once and for all. We are going to give it a shot and see what happens."

"You always get annoyed because you always want to play, but this is a good time to be out for two weeks so I am glad it is now and not later on in the season," said Tuck

Tuck has been very good this year, averaging 14.9 points this season.
