The St. John's Red Storm have faced a nightmarish start to conference play so far this season, and it doesn't appear that they'll be waking up from the nightmare just yet. On Wednesday night when the Johnnies fell to Creighton, in Omaha, guard Rysheed Jordan suffered a leg injury early on that limited him to just seven minutes in the first half. It was diagnosed as a strained patella. Head coach Steve Lavin had no update on Jordan's status on yesterday's conference call. Today, SNY's Adam Zagoria tweeted the following

The Red Storm and Friars face off at noon Saturday so expect an official update sometime in the morning.
If Jordan cannot play, it, of course, wouldn't be the first time he's missed conference games this season. Earlier this month it was announced Jordan would be taking an indefinite leave of absence from the team. That leave of absence lasted all of one game.
