Gophers big men Dawson Garcia and Pharrel Payne to miss Indiana game
The Gophers men’s basketball team will be eliminated by junior forward Dawson Garcia and freshman forward Pharrel Payne in Wednesday night’s game against Indiana, the team announced.
Garcia, the team’s leading scorer (14.9 ppg) and rebounder (6.3 rebounds per game), suffered a right foot injury late in the second half of Sunday’s 60-56 loss against Michigan. Payne is sidelined indefinitely after going through concussion protocol following an incident in practice.
The Gophers, who also play Saturday at Northwestern, were already missing first-year guard Braeden Carrington, who is out three to four weeks with a right leg stress reaction.
Only seven scholarship players (including former extras) who have played this season are available for Wednesday’s game against the Hoosiers. Forwards Parker Fox and Isaiah Ihnen are out for the year with knee injuries sustained over the summer.
