Updates on Hairston, Wilson, Wynne, Gashi, and Boli.

John A. Babiak - @Photog_JohnB

This week I was able to get out to Commerce City on both Monday and Tuesday. It’s hard to really get anything good from Monday since it’s typically a lighter day anyway. The starters run around for a bit and then go back in while the subs and players who didn’t see the pitch that Saturday stay out for a full practice. Tuesday was a regular practice with everyone, though.

Marlon Hairston

Marlon wasn’t out on Monday or Tuesday, and the team hasn’t made any announcements about his potential injury, but he did post this on Instagram yesterday:

He also posted a story as he was driving to DSGP this morning, so I think(?) that’s a good sign. Doubt that there’s any chance of seeing him this weekend, but Dillon Serna is definitely a suitable replacement, and hopefully we’ll hear some official news from the club soon.

Danny Wilson

He wasn’t at practice either day and I haven’t heard anything, so no news on his potential injury, but also hoping to hear something within the next couple days.

Deklan Wynne

Deklan was practicing on Monday but wasn’t there on Tuesday. I don’t think there’s anything to read into here, though.

Shkelzen Gashi

Gashi is still practicing with the second team, but has been fully practicing for a couple of weeks now. I’m really hoping we see him sub in soon.

Yannick Boli

Dude is fit. He didn’t seem to skip a beat in coming here fitness-wise, but I do think the altitude gets him a bit and I don’t think he’s quite ready for a full game. He can keep up during most of practice but starts to run out of steam towards the end. I think we could potentially see him sub in, but the depth situation with the forwards and the way Dominique Badji has been playing makes me think he won’t be starting anytime soon.
