According to Yahoo! Sports, the California Golden Bears have suffered a major injury right before their NCAA March Madness Tournament game against Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors on Friday. Starting guard Tyrone Wallace suffered a fractured bone in his right hand.

He will undergo evaluations on his non-shooting hand to further determine if he’ll be able to give it a go. Right now, his status for the game is up in the air.

He reportedly suffered the injury on Wednesday, according to the story. The 6-foot-6 guard is averaging 15.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 4.4 assists in 28 games this season.

Wallace also broke a bone in his right hand in January and missed a month with the injury.

He is one of the leaders on the team, which features stud freshman Jaylen Brown and Ivan Rabb. The Bears finished the season with a 23-10 record and are the No. 4 seed in the South Region.

The team is expected to update his condition in the coming hours. Without Wallace, if he can’t give it a go, then Brown and Rabb would be counted on more.

The Rainbow Warriors are not expected to be much of a challenge for the Bears in this game. But Wallace’s injury could affect them as they move on later in the tournament, if they defeat Hawai’i.
