Guard Myles Powell sues Seton Hall, staff for bad diagnosis

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Basketball player Myles Powell has sued Seton Hall, coach Kevin Willard and a staff member, accusing them of failing to diagnose a knee injury during his senior season that led to physical and financial damage. The lawsuit — filed in state Superior Court in Essex County, New Jersey — also names Tony Testa as a co-defendant, identifying him as the director of sports medicine at the university and the basketball team’s physician. There is a Tony Testa on the basketball team’s support staff, but he is the team’s athletic trainer. The suit alleges Powell was misdiagnosed with an ankle injury early in the 2019-20 season, when it was actually a lateral meniscus tear to his right knee.
