UNLV Wyoming

UNLV guard Patrick McCaw dives between the legs of Wyoming guard Josh Adams for a loose ball during their game this past season in Las Vegas.

Former Wyoming men's basketball star Josh Adams had surgery after being injured in a car accident last weekend in the Denver metro area, the Wyoming athletics department said Wednesday.

Adams, who recently signed with Avtodor Saratov of the Russian VTB United League, is recovering at his parents' house in Castle Rock, Colorado. No one else was injured in the accident and no alcohol or drugs were involved, UW's release said.

Avtodor Saratov said in a release that Adams will remain on the team with hopes that he can play in the second half of the season.

Adams is not speaking with media as he recovers. 

"The good lord was really looking out for me this weekend," Adams tweeted Monday. "In all honestly, I probably shouldn't still be here. Thank you god. Thank you."

Adams also tweeted, "Thanks to everyone who has checked in on my after the accident the past few days. I may nor have seen them all hut (sic) all are appreciated," and, "Home now and resting. Will be the hardest part of the rehab process."
