Indiana forward Collin Hartman injured his left knee during a non-contact drill, according to the Associated Press.
Hartman’s stats for the Hoosiers last year might not exactly jump off the page (5.0 pts, 3.1 reb), but his experience might come to be invaluable this coming season. Hartman is the only senior on Indiana’s basketball team and has started 36 games during his stint in Bloomington, 24 last year in his junior year and 12 his sophomore year.
The 6-foot-7 Indianapolis native is no stranger to injury; he tore his ACL following his freshman season.
Hartman, barring anything debilitating taking away significant playing time from him this coming season, is expected to bring critical experience, rebounding help and a three-point threat to the Hoosiers.
Indiana has one of the best front-courts in college basketball, with Hartman, Thomas Bryant, Juwan Morgan and OG Anunoby all capable of contributing in big ways, among others.
Indiana will tip its season off Nov. 11 vs. Kansas.
