Ohio State forward Jae’Sean Tate has done quite well manning the wing for the Buckeyes this season, but that could all be over now. According to a report from The Columbus Dispatch, the sophomore could miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.

The report states that Tate’s status for the rest of the season is “uncertain” following an MRI and that this shoulder injury stems from a torn labrum suffered in high school. Torn labrums are no joke and even though Ohio State are majorly on the bubble right now, sitting at 18-10 (10-5 Big Ten) and unranked despite being just two games out of first place in the Big Ten, coach Thad Matta would be wise to let Tate sit out the rest of the season.
Tate, a former five-star recruit from the Columbus area, has averaged 11.7 points and 6.4 rebounds per game this season while shooting 52 percent from the field.
