Siena forward will miss the rest of the season with injury


Siena junior forward Brett Bisping will sit out the remainder of the 2014-15 season, according to a release from the school. The 6-foot-8 Bisping had a dislocation at the metatarsal phalangeal, and an avulsion fracture of the flexor tendon in his right foot. The injuries occured early in the season for Siena on Dec. 5 and Bisping hasn’t properly recovered since having surgery on Dec. 12.

Bisping has not regained full mobility to his foot and will sit out the season before requesting a Medical Hardship Waiver. If the waiver is granted, Bisping would have two years left.

One of the stronger mid-major players down the stretch last season, Bisping was MVP of the College Basketball Invitational and averaged 11.5 points and 6.5 rebounds per game in his sophomore season. At the start of his junior year, Bisping was averaging 8.7 points and 4.7 rebounds per game before getting hurt.

Without Bisping in the lineup, Siena has struggled to a 9-14 record on the season and a 6-8 start in the MAAC.
