Rather than continuing to fight through the pain/discomfort of a bone chip in his left ankle that he has had since high school, Ohio State's floor leader decided to have it taken care of through a minor procedure.
While Craft is missing summer workouts, full recovery is expected.
Is it possible that this is bad news for the Buckeyes' 2012-13 opponents?
Craft may not only get back to full strength and full speed, but could he develop other parts of his game in the process?
In an attempt to completely recuperate, will Thad Matta's point guard use this time to improve his ordinary perimeter shooting (37 percent from beyond the arc in his first two years at OSU)?
In Ohio State's final nine games of the 2011-12 season, the 6'2" guard from Findlay, Ohio shot 5-of-19 from three-point-range (26.3 percent).
If he adds "outside-scoring threat" to his long list of skills, Craft will move from being thought of as an elite-level on-ball defender and an outstanding floor general to a complete star player.
