INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Butler Basketball junior forward Roosevelt Jones will miss the 2013-14 men's basketball season with a wrist injury, Butler announced Friday.
Jones suffered a wrist injury during the team's recent trip to Australia. The injury has been determined as season-ending.
"Roosevelt suffered an injury that resulted in ligament damage to his left wrist, and he'll undergo season-ending surgery," said Butler head athletic trainer Ryan Galloy. "His prognosis is good and he's expected to make a full recovery for next season."
Jones missed three games in Australia and was reevaluated when the team returned earlier this week.
Roosevelt Jones is the school's top scorer and rebounder. He averaged 10.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and a team-high 3.5 assists for the 27-9 Bulldogs a year ago.
Jones is best known for his dramatic shot that helped Butler win in a buzzer-beater against Gonzaga last season.
"First and foremost, our thoughts are with Roosevelt," stated Butler head coach Brandon Miller. "He has worked very hard to position himself to have a terrific junior hear. Having said that, Roosevelt is a tough-minded, determined young man, and I am confident he will return from this adversity an even better player and person. Despite not playing, Roosevelt will continue to have an impact in leading this team as we move forward."
Jones tweeted Friday, "God works in mysterious ways."
