Jim Calhoun Will Miss Providence Game; Leave Of Absence Now 'Day-To-Day,' According To Report

Connecticut Huskies men's basketball coach Jim Calhoun continues to recover from the spinal cord condition that forced his medical leave of absence, but he is still contemplating a return prior to the end of the regular season.

Calhoun is expected to miss UConn's Tuesday night road trip to Providence, but ESPN's Andy Katz reports that it is possible the Hall of Famer could come back for the regular season finale on March 3 against Pittsburgh at Gampel Pavilion.

Katz cautions that it's "too early to tell" whether Calhoun's hopes of coaching UConn's last regular season game will come to fruition, but it's likely a good sign that the coach is healthy enough to even consider the notion of a return. He recently underwent a surgical procedure to help alleviate the effects of spinal stenosis.
