Middle Tennessee reserve forward out indefinitely


Middle Tennessee sophomore Joshua Phillips will be out indefinitely with a stress fracture in his foot. The story was first reported by Will Borthick of the Daily News Journal.

The 6-foot-8 forward hasn’t played since Jan. 9 against UAB and reportedly broke the bone in practice. According to Borthick, Phillips will be reevaluated next week and have a clearer timetable for his return.

A sophomore, Phillips was playing 9.9 minutes per game and averaging 1.6 points and 1.9 rebounds per game so far this season.

The Blue Raiders are 10-8 overall and 3-2 in Conference USA so far this season and host Old Dominion on Jan. 22.
