Early in the second half of Vanderbilt’s 74-67 loss to Kentucky on January 13, senior guard Matthew Fisher-Davis suffered a right shoulder injury and did not return. Fisher-Davis has not played since, and on Tuesday it was announced that his collegiate career has come to an end due to the injury.
Fisher-Davis suffered a torn labrum and a subluxation of the shoulder, and according to The Tennessean he will undergo surgery Friday. Fisher-Davis is looking at a recovery period of six months according to The Tennessean.
Fisher-Davis finishes his Vanderbilt career ranked sixth on the school’s three-pointers made list, as he tallied 269 over the course of three-plus seasons. As a senior he was averaging 11.9 points and 5.1 rebounds per game, shooting 37.7 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from three-point range.
With Fisher-Davis no longer in the rotation sophomore Payton Willis, who was already in the Vanderbilt perimeter rotation, stands to see even more minutes moving forward. Willis, who’s averaging 4.7 points in 16.8 minutes per game, tallied six points and six rebounds in 35 minutes of action in Vanderbilt’s 77-71 win over LSU on Saturday.
