He doesn't know when she can return. Mitchell recommended four months of rest. Ouellette doesn't think it will be that long but added, "we want her 100 percent painfree. We can only guess when that will be. She's already been resting it a bit, so hopefully it won't be that much longer."

Clement's plastic boot has been replaced with an air cast, which she said is more comfortable. Ouellette also said it allows a little flexibility to her ankle, preventing that joint from stiffening up.

While she is not able to play any basketball, Clement is keeping in shape by trying new things: yoga, swimming and the P90X workout. "I'm just doing as much as I can," she said.

She has spoken to coaches from the schools that have offered scholarships -- Marist, Holy Cross, Miami of Ohio, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Hartford, Maine and Binghamton, according to her father -- and all understand why she isn't playing.

It doesn't make it easy, though.

"It's not like I'm waiting for another coach to see me," she said. "But I thought we had fixed it. I thought I'd be able to play AAU ball.

"It's probably good for my body to rest, I guess."
