Michigan State Spartans forward Matt Costello is taking care of an injury that plagued him throughout the latter part of the college basketball season.
According to Joe Rexrode of the Detroit Free Press, Costello underwent an arthoscopic procedure on his left knee Thursday.
Following the procedure, Costello is set to miss “a couple of weeks.”
Once doctors believe the 6-foot-9 forward is fully recovered and back to 100 percent, Costello will be permitted to resume all basketball activities.
Last season, Matt Costello averaged 7.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game.
This season, the Michigan State Spartans made a run to the Final Four in the NCAA tournament despite entering the postseason as a No. 7 seed in the East region. Tom Izzo’s Spartans knocked off No. 2 Virginia, No. 3 Oklahoma and No. 4 Louisville on their way to Indianapolis.
Unfortunately, the Spartans’ title hopes fell short as they fell to the Duke Blue Devils, who went on to beat Wisconsin for the national title, in the Final Four.
Michigan State will look to improve on their finish next season, and Matt Costello will be a key contributor and leader on the court.
