Leuer out indefinitely with fractured wrist

From UW Athletic Communications:

Wisconsin junior forward Jon Leuer injured his left wrist in Saturday’s game vs. Purdue, the UW Sports Medicine Staff announced Monday. Leuer was injured early in the first half of the Badgers’ game as he tried to brace himself during a fall.

 

An x-ray following the game revealed a fracture of a bone in his wrist and he is scheduled to have surgery on Tuesday. No timetable has been set for his return.

 

"Obviously, I’m disappointed by the injury, but I plan on being as big a part of this team as ever," Leuer said. "I will continue to be at all the practices and conditioning sessions and support the team as best I can. I’m confident my teammates can continue the great season we’ve begun and I look forward to rejoining the team."

 

Leuer has started all 16 games for UW this season and was the Badgers’ second-leading scorer at the time of the injury, averaging 15.4 points per game. He also leads the team with 6.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game. Leuer scored four points and grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds in Saturday’s win over Purdue.

Bo Ryan is set to talk to the media between 12:30 and 1 p.m. this afternoon. We'll keep you posted with any further details.
