Freshmen Donovon Jack Diagnosed With Stress Fracture

Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

The true freshman's season likely will come to an early end.

Many had wondered why Donovon Jack hadn't seen any playing time the last three games. Well, it was announced last night via twitter and on Chambers' radio show that true freshman forward Donovon Jack will likely miss the remainder of the season with a stress fracture in his right foot. The injury usually takes 3-4 weeks of rest to heal, and there's only a little over 3 weeks left in the season.

Although he played sparingly this season, Jack has already seen action in 17 games, well over the 30% limit placed on medical redshirt candidates. He will be sophomore entering next season.

Jack finishes his first year with the program with 27 points on 11-23 shooting (50% eFG%). It's a disappointing setback for a player who seemed to be earning more time on the court to develop during this rough season. Still, Jack showed nice promise with his athleticism at his size but will need to add weight over the offseason while continuing to work on his defense and rebounding.

This isn't particularly jarring for the team who is already 0-13, but you never like to see a player get hurt, nor do you want to lose a young player who was pushing for more playing time.
