Lehigh will be without their leading scorer for nearly two months.
Guard C.J. McCollum fractured his fifth metatarsal in his left foot. The injury is expected to keep him out 8-10 weeks.
The injury happened in the first half of Lehigh’s 59-55 loss at VCU on Saturday. He was the No. 2 scorer in the nation at 23.9 points per game.
“We are going to make sure C.J. is fully recovered and will place the highest priority on quality of care,” Lehigh coach Brett Reed said in a statement through the school. “We’ll be certain the injury has healed properly before full activity is resumed. C.J. is a wonderful leader and he’ll continue to help the team in every way possible. He has a bright future of basketball ahead of him.”
The team is hoping that he will be able to return for the final game of the regular season. If there is a setback, they are hoping that he will be ready for the Patriot League tournament.
He is expected to be a first-round pick in the 2013 NBA draft.
