Oregon forward Dillon Brooks was cleared to drop the walking boot on Wednesday, according to Steve Mims of The Register-Guard. This moves up the timeline for the Mississauga native, who was expected to miss time early this season for the Ducks.
Dylan Brooks got boot off his foot yesterday. Said no timetable for return but seems like he shouldn't miss many games at this pace.
