EAST LANSING - Michigan State's basketball team took its first major injury hit when it was revealed that freshman sensation Raymar Morgan would miss the Spartans game against Indiana-Purdue University at Fort Wayne and could be out as long as four weeks with what is believed to be a stress fracture in his right shin.

Morgan broke a long-standing record held by Ervin "Magic" Johnson and others for consecutive games in double figures, it currently stands and will stop at ten.

He has by far outperformed all of MSU's incoming freshman group and had moved into the starting lineup.

WWJ-950 AM in Detroit reported that Morgan could be out two to three weeks due to the stress fracture, but MSU head coach Tom Izzo did not address the injury in his weekly press conference.

The Spartans schedule lightens over the next four weeks and after Sunday's matchup with BYU, they face a string of home games before opening Big Ten play on January 4th on the road against Iowa. If Morgan is out the entire four weeks, he could be back early in the Big Ten season.
