Oregon State could be without Tres Tinkle for as long as six weeks due to a broken bone in the forward’s wrist.

According to OregonLive.com, Tinkle, the son of head coach Wayne Tinkle, broke a bone in his right – non-shooting – wrist in a loss to Fresno State on Friday night. It is unclear if Tinkle will need surgery to repair the damage.

A CT scan is expected to be completed on Monday.

Tinkle suffered the injury when he fell awkwardly, using his right arm to break the fall, after trying to block a shot. He had 31 points prior to getting injured and, on the year, is averaging 20.2 points and 8.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.2 steals this season.
