Michigan State will be shorthanded when it begins practice in just over a week’s time, as one of their expected contributors has been sidelined due to injury.
Sophomore forward Marvin Clark Jr. underwent surgery on his left foot Tuesday, and as a result he’s expected to miss anywhere from six to eight weeks as a result. According to the Detroit Free Press a screw was inserted into Clark’s foot to address a stress reaction, and the decision was made to address this now given the fact that the season’s yet to begin.
Clark averaged 4.5 points and 2.2 rebounds in just over 11 minutes of action per game as a freshman, and with Branden Dawson having moved on he’s expected to play even more in 2015-16. With Clark now sidelined for the time being, freshman Deyonta Davis will be among those who absorb the sophomore’s minutes.
