The TCU basketball team will be without a key contributor for the foreseeable future.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Horned Frogs announced point guard Jaylen Fisher has been ruled out indefinitely after suffering a right knee injury in practice this week.
There is no official word on what the extent of the injury is, but the good news is it is not believed to have impacted his ACL.
From the SportsDay report:
“It’s not good. We’re probably talking weeks on a knee injury. At 1-4 in the Big 12, TCU really needs to take advantage of a stretch of winnable games to avoid seeing the season slip away. Fisher was averaging 12.3 points and 5.4 assists while taking a step forward with his play. He’s a big loss. At the same time, the Horned Frogs managed to win the NIT last season without him last year, so there is a history of players stepping up.”
Fisher is expected to undergo an MRI and while the injury is not believed to be to his ACL, there remains some fear that it could end his season, according to NBC Sports.
This season, Fisher has been averaging 12.3 points and 5.4 assists per game. He leads the team in assists while ranking third in scoring.
TCU is currently ranked No. 24 and returns to action tonight against Iowa State at 8:00 p.m. ET.
