Penn State Basketball: Donovon Jack to Miss Remainder of Season With Stress Fracture
Penn State freshman forward Donovon Jack will miss the remainder of the season with a stress fracture in his right foot according to a university release. The injury usually requires 3-4 weeks to recover from, the Nittany Lions finish the season on March 10 before making a trip to Chicago for the Big Ten tournament.
“Donovon has worked hard in the weight room and on the court in his first season to get stronger, improve his game and learn our system,” Penn State coach Patrick Chambers said. “I am happy with his progress, and he has a bright future in our program. Unfortunately, it looks like this injury will likely sideline him through the end of this season, but we expect he’ll be able to get back on the court soon and start working toward next season"
Jack played in 17 games so far in his first season averaging 1.7 points and 1.0 rebounds per game while shooting 47.8 percent. Despite the limited play, Jack had shown flashes of potential and will likely contribute more during his sophomore campaign.
Penn State's All-Big Ten guard Tim Frazier is still recovering from a ruptured left achilles tendon early in the season.
