Booker done for season

Former Clemson basketball star Trevor Booker will miss the rest of his rookie season due to a foot injury, the Washington Wizards announced late Wednesday.

Booker appeared in 65 games, with 14 starts, for the Wizards during the 2010-11 season. His 65 games were the most played by a former Clemson player in an NBA season since Greg Buckner appeared in 76 contests for the Dallas Mavericks in 2006-07. Booker averaged 5.3 points and 3.9 rebounds per game, while shooting 54.9 percent from the floor. He is also second on the Wizards roster with 42 blocked shots.

Booker was a first-team All-ACC selection at Clemson as a senior in 2010. He was then the first senior selected in the first round of the NBA Draft with the No. 23 pick. He was originally drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves, but was quickly traded to the Wizards. Booker also earned his undergraduate degree from Clemson in August of 2010.

He ranks fourth in Clemson history with 1,725 points and third with 1,060 rebounds. He finished his career with 249 blocked shots as well, the fourth-best total in school history. Booker was a two-time All-ACC Defensive Team selection and never missed a start in 134 games with the Tigers from 2006-10. Top Stories
