Cal took a major hit to its lineup on Tuesday afternoon as the school announced that senior guard Tyrone Wallace will miss 4-to-6 weeks with a broken hand.

The 6-foot-5 Wallace has been one of the Pac-12’s most productive players the last two seasons as he’s averaging 15.4 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game. The Golden Bears’ leader in points, assists and steals, Wallace going down is a big loss for a 12-6 team that is in a tough Pac-12 and trying to make a postseason run.

Without Wallace, Cal will need to rely on freshmen like Jaylen Brown and Ivan Rabb to produce while Jordan Matthews must also continue his strong season.
