Washington Huskies Guard Scott Suggs Will Miss 8-12 Weeks With Foot Injury

The senior guard will undergo surgery on Friday.

The University of Washington Men's Basketball Head Coach Lorenzo Romar announced Friday that senior co-captain guard Scott Suggs will be forced to miss 8-12 weeks of action after having surgery on an injured foot to repair a fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his right foot. Husky team doctor Chris Wahl will perform the surgery at the UW Medical Center Friday afternoon.

Suggs is a 6'6 guard that averaged 7.4 points per game, 1.9 rebounds, and shot 45% from three point range last season, good for third in the Pac-10. 

This injury obviously comes at an inopportune time for the Huskies Basketball team, who are set to begin their fall practice Friday, then travel to Olympia's Evergreen State College to begin a three-day training camp. 

The Huskies are fairly deep at guard but the leadership of a young team that Suggs provides as captain is where he provides a lot of value.
