He was injured in the team’s 80-55 loss to the Dayton Flyers. This is the second major injury for the Panthers this month. He was injured in the team’s 80-55 loss to the Dayton Flyers. This is the second major injury for the Panthers this month.

Besides Fields, the team also lost senior guard Mike Cook, who suffered a torn ligament in his left knee on Dec. 21 in a 65-64 overtime win over the Duke Blue Devils.

Panthers head coach Jamie Dixon will only have nine healthy players on scholarship after Fields’ injury. The team also lost forward Austin Wallace to a season-ending knee injury on Dec. 7.
