Texas A&M will be without point guard Admon Gilder for the rest of the season.

According to a report from Jon Rothstein, the senior guard is dealing with injuries as he hasn’t played so far this season. A double-figure scorer the past two seasons, Gilder was one of the lone holdovers from last season’s Sweet 16 team.

Without Gilder, a young Texas A&M team has plenty of minutes to go around as they’re off to a sluggish 2-4 start on the season. Gilder will have the option to likely redshirt and return if given a medical hardship waiver, or he might just opt to try his options in the pros.

Guard TJ Starks has assumed much of the lead guard responsibilities so far to mixed results. Starks has produced to the tune of 13.5 points and 4.0 assists per game, but he’s only shooting 31 percent from the field and 25 percent from three-point range.

It appears that Texas A&M will remain one of the bottom teams in the SEC this season as they’ll have a rebuilding year ahead.
