The status of Utah State men's basketball player Quinn Taylor remains uncertain headed into the Mountain West Conference Tournament.

Taylor has been sidelined since the team's regular-season finale at UNLV due to a heart condition. Aggies head coach Tim Duryea said on Saturday that the team expected to know more on Monday afternoon after Taylor visited a cardiologist.

"He has to have another test tomorrow and that will probably tell the story about the remaining part of his year and maybe his career as well," Duryea said on Monday. "He played with a heart monitor during a 48 hour test (at UNLV). He played with that device on and at the end of that testing period they felt like they had seen enough that they needed to shut him down before they did a few more test and he was seen by a cardiologist. He's been dealing with it for a month or so where he can feel his heart speeding up and he checks himself out. Then it calms down and he doesn't have anymore issues."

Taylor, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, has played in all 29 games this season (17.9 minutes per game) and has started eight games. He has averaged 5.0 points and 4.0 rebounds per game, while shooting 52.2 percent from the field.
