As expected before the season began Richmond has relied on starters ShawnDre’ Jones and Kendall Anthony to carry most of the load on the perimeter, with Jones dishing out four assists per game and Anthony being the team’s leading scorer. But on occasion those two need some time to recuperate, and earlier this week head coach Chris Mooney saw one of those supplementary options suffer an injury that will keep him off the floor for the time being.
Freshman Khwan Fore, who is averaging just 7.5 minutes per game, suffered a broken bone in his left foot according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Fore, who played ten minutes in the Spiders’ 80-56 win over High Point on November 22, missed the team’s loss at NC State Wednesday night and how many games he’ll miss has yet to be determined.
Per the report, Fore’s injury will require surgery.
Sophomore Josh Jones, who’s averaging 2.5 points in just over ten minutes of action per game, is one player who could absorb some of the minutes left available in the aftermath of Fore’s injury.
