Baylor Lady Bear Alexis Jones is likely out until “somewhere in March” with a bruised knee. Baylor274’s Tony Adame reports that Jones suffered a bone bruise on her knee during the first half of the Lady Bear’s February 6 game against Texas and is now “day to day.”
Jones, who averages 13.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.0 assists, will likely miss Saturday's regular-season home finale against Texas Tech. Bone bruises have no set timetable for healing - it can take days or it can take months in some cases.
Jones has a history of severe knee injuries and has had both ACL surgery and microfracture surgery in the last five years.
Jones is Baylor’s leading scorer and recently had a triple double in Baylor’s curb stomping of Oklahoma in January.
