Kansas State senior and preseason all-american Dean Wade is out indefinitely due to the injury that he suffered in Saturday’s win over Georgia State.
Wade went down in the second half grabbing his right foot. He later was seen walking on crutches. Wade missed the majority of last year’s run to the Elite Eight due to a stress fracture in his left foot.
“Obviously I’m disappointed for Dean and his family,” coach Bruce Weber said in a statement that was released by the school on Sunday evening. “He has worked hard to get back from his injury from last season to have a great start to his senior year. I know that he will work equally hard to rehab and come back strong.”
No specifics on the kind of injury or the timetable for Wade’s return were given. Through nine games, Wade was averaging 13.6 points, 7.8 rebound and 3.2 assists this season. Kansas State entered this week ranked No. 25 in the AP Poll. They are 7-2 on the season.
When he was out last year, Weber opted to play a lineup with four guards, starting Barry Brown, Kamau Stokes, Cartier Diarra and Xavier Sneed alongside Makol Mawien.
