Oregon State star Tres Tinkle could miss six weeks with broken wrist

Oregon State star Tres Tinkle could be forced out of action for the foreseeable future.

According to a report from OregonLive.com, the sophomore forward suffered a broken bone in his wrist during Friday night’s loss to Fresno State. Tinkle, who had 31 points at the time of the injury, could miss up to six weeks.

There is no word on whether the injury will require surgery.

Tinkle, the son of Beavers head coach Wayne Tinkle, will undergo a CT scan on Monday to determine the full extent of the damage.

This season, Tinkle is averaging 20.2 points and 8.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.2 steals per game.

Oregon State is set to return to action on Monday, Nov. 28 against Southern Oregon at home. The Beavers currently sit at 2-4 on the season, with four straight loses.
