Wilmont Out Two Months With Foot Injury

Injury suffered in July 12th pick-up game to keep Wilmont out until late September.

Indiana guard Roderick Wilmont will be sidelined for two months after undergoing successful foot surgery today, according to the IU Athletics Department.

The Miramar, Fla., native is expected to be out until late September after the surgery, which came as a result of an injury Wilmont suffered while playing in a pick-up game in Bloomington July 12.

"Rod has really worked hard this summer," Indiana head coach Mike Davis said in a prepared statement. "He has made substantial strides since his freshman year and we feel he will become a pivotal player for the IU basketball team. This is a setback for him, but we expect him to make a full recovery."

As a sophomore, Wilmont averaged 3.6 points, 2.4 rebounds and 13.7 minutes per game as one of IU's top backcourt reserves. He ranked second on the team in 3-point shooting, knocking down 41 percent (16-of-39) of his attempts from behind the arc.
