Ashton Pankey has not played since Maryland's Nov. 8 season opener against Seattle.
Coach Gary Williams didn't seem inclined Saturday to hint when the freshman might play again.
Williams said the program has not made a decision on whether to pursue a medical hardship for Pankey, who has a history of leg injuries.
"That's to be determined," Williams said. "We'll see."
The NCAA grants medical hardships to players who are injured and don't appear in more than 30 percent of their team's games. Pankey would seem a likely candidate for one if he doesn't play for the rest of this season and Maryland goes through the application process.
Pankey played three minutes in the opener and did not record any other statistics. He missed his entire senior year at St. Anthony High School in Jersey City, N.J., and it was little surprise after losing a full season he would need some time to develop for the Terps (7-3), who play host to Boston College on Sunday.
Still, it's been obvious for a few weeks Pankey was unlikely to even fill a minimal role for the Terps even though he has dressed each game. Walk-on Ersin Levent played at the tail end of three games --- against Maine, Delaware State and Elon --- while Pankey remained on the bench. Pankey also did not play in Wednesday's 99-56 pummeling of UNC Greensboro.
