Another IU freshmen hurt
September 26, 2013 – Indiana freshman center Luke Fischer sustained a sprained left shoulder earlier this week and will be out for “a few weeks,” according to the school.
“Luke has made great strides and was playing with great confidence,” IU basketball coach Tom Crean said in a release. “He was being aggressive in his pursuit for the basketball when it happened.”
As with an earlier injury to Troy Williams, the school offered few details. There is a media availability with IU players today, but the school indicated to reporters Tuesday that “injured players will not talk about their injuries. … Coach (Crean) will address injury questions at his first availability.”
Fischer was a Parade All-American and Wisconsin Mr. Basketball and Gatorade Player of the Year after he averaged 21.3 points and 9.5.
