TCU guard Jarvis Ray injured his foot Tuesday night against Southern and will be out six to eight weeks.
Ray injured his foot when he came down from a jump shot and landed on the foot of a defender late in the Horned Frogs win over Southern at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.
He's the third Frogs' player to have a major injury this season and to miss significant time. Forward Amric Fields is out for the season after a knee injury in the third game of the season. Freshman center Aaron Durley injured a knee before the season began and has been sidelined since.
The junior guard limped off the court and was helped to the training room. The injury occurred in the final minutes of the 68-57 win.
"I just feel bad for the kid. I know what Jarvis has been through. He was playing well and has his grades right," said TCU coach Trent Johnson.
Ray missed the last two months of last season because of academic reasons. He did not start on Tuesday, but had started the previous nine games, averaging 6.2 points per game.
If he returns during the expected time frame, he would be available for TCU's final six regular season games and the Big 12 tournament on March 13 in Kansas City. Johnson has a tight roster, with just 11 available players. Transfer Christian Gore will not be available until January 14th, due to NCAA rules.
"Everybody has got more to do. You've got to stay positive. We have to get through Christmas and the kids will get four days off," said Johnson.
