There were many rumors circulating in the Anaheim pits last weekend during the first round of Supercross. Speculation was rife about a wrist injury, and indeed, the injury is in Haiden Deegan’s wrist, specifically the scaphoid.
As Haiden Deegan gears up for the 2024 AMA Supercross Season in the 250 East, commencing on February 3rd at Detroit SX, Steve Matthes confirmed today that Deegan is indeed injured. Despite the setback, Deegan is determined to participate in the Detroit Supercross. A scaphoid injury typically requires up to 12 weeks for recovery, but considering that Deegan sustained the injury in December, there may be sufficient time for healing before the event on February 3rd.
Amidst swirling rumors suggesting that Deegan might withdraw from Supercross to focus on the Pro Motocross Season, Matthes clarified today that Deegan will make an attempt to compete.
I heard he's going to try and race Dee-troit but yes, he's hurt. https://t.co/s9xSI5bsRV— Steve Matthes (@pulpmx) January 9, 2024
