Report: Leron Black out indefinitely

Sophomore forward has suffered setbacks since returning from surgery to remove torn meniscus

Illinois is shutting down Leron Black for the time being.

According to a report from CBSSports.com's Jon Rothstein, the sophomore forward -- who has missed four of 11 games this season -- is out indefinitely after experiencing soreness and swelling following October surgery to remove the torn meniscus in his right knee.

Illinois (6-5) has been ravaged by injuries this season. Starting point guard Tracy Abrams is out for the season with a torn Achilles and starting center Mike Thorne Jr. (who was averaging 13.4 points and a team-leading 8.4 rebounds per game) is out indefinitely after suffering a torn meniscus.

Black is averaging 3.9 points and 3.9 rebounds per game in 1.8 minutes per game, down from 5.0 points and 4.3 rebounds in 14.8 minutes per game last season. He is shooting 41.7 percent, down from 47.5 percent last season. His fouls committed per 40 minutes also has worsened, increasing from 7.3 last season to 9.0 this season.

Black missed the first game of the season, then played 28 minutes over the next three games, accumulating nine points, seven rebounds and nine fouls.

He did not play against Chicago State and returned to have his best two performances agaainst UAB (12 points, six rebounds) and Iowa State (eight points, eight rebounds) in 43 total minutes.

"He has not felt that good since," Groce said last week."Will he? We'll see. I don't know at this point. It's kind of a day-to-day ordeal for us."
