Taylor Sidelined by Knee Injury

EUGENE, Ore. — Oregon sophomore guard Bryce Taylor suffered a hyperextended right knee during Monday evening's practice at McArthur Court and will be sidelined for the next nine to 20 days according to team medical personnel. The good news was that tests conducted Tuesday confirmed that Taylor did not damage any of the major ligaments in his right knee and is expected to make a complete recovery.

"The prognosis is very good," said Dr. Ken Singer, the team's orthopedic specialist.

Taylor is Oregon's third-leading scorer at 9.3 points per game and ranks eighth in the Pac-10 in free throw percentage at .797. The Encino, Calif., native has played in all 23 games for Oregon (10-13) this season, starting 13.

Taylor was named Pac-10 all-freshman a season ago after averaging 11.6 points per game and hitting 44 three-point field goals.
