Stanford junior guard Anthony Brown will miss the rest of the season due to a hip injury.
Brown hasn’t played since seeing six minutes of action in Stanford’s home loss to Belmont on the 18th. He’s due to undergo surgery in mid-December and will be applying for a medical redshirt.
“We are all hoping that Anthony’s surgery goes well and wish him a speedy recovery,” Stanford head coach Johnny Dawkins said in a statement. “Anthony has played an important role for our team throughout his career and we expected him to be significant contributor once again this season. I have no doubt Anthony will work hard to come back even stronger.”
Brown started twice this season, but he was only averaging 3.0 points and 2.3 boards. He averaged 8.1 points as a sophomore last season.
This is a pretty big hit to Stanford’s perimeter, which wasn’t all that deep to begin with. Especially when you consider Chasson Randle and Aaron Bright have been struggling a bit early in the season.
