Jontel Evans Out Six Weeks With Foot Injury

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Virginia senior point guard Jontel Evans will miss six weeks with a stress fracture in his foot.

The Virginia basketball program announced this evening that Jontel Evans had surgery on his right foot earlier today to correct a stress fracture that had been bothering him for the last several practices. He is expected to miss six weeks to recover from the procedure.

Six weeks from today takes us to November 13th, which would be the day of the second game of the NIT Season Tip-Off and the Cavaliers' third game of the season. They open the regular season on November 9th at George Mason.

Obviously the six weeks is an estimate, so it's possible he could be back for the start of the season but its just as possible that he doesn't play until the game against Seattle on November 17th or the NIT Semifinals/Finals the following week.

Good thing my man Doug Browman is still on the team to take care of the short guy point guard position in Jontel's absence. Would be a shame to not have that.

In all seriousness, it may be a good opportunity for some of the other ball handlers - Malcolm Brogdon, Justin Anderson - to get some early season PT.
