Anas Mahmoud will be out for the rest of the season after spraining his ankle in practice on Monday, the school announced.

Mahmoud is a 7-foot-1 center from Egypt and one of the most intriguing prospects on the Louisville roster. His production this season has been minimal — he’s averaging just 3.4 points, 3.1 boards and 1.4 blocks in 14 minutes — but the potential is there. He’s long, he’s athletic, he’s skilled and he’s just a sophomore.

Louisville has six games left this season.

The Cardinals are ineligible for the NCAA tournament after self-imposing a postseason ban.
