Stanford senior guard Aaron Bright will be sidelined for the remainder of the season with a dislocated right shoulder he injured in practice last week.
After averaging better than 30 minutes per game a season ago, Bright had been playing a smaller role on this year’s team coming off the bench and playing 19.3 minutes per game and averaging 5.9 points. Still, this is a significant loss for Stanford.
“Aaron has played an important role within our program during his career, which makes the timing of this injury so unfortunate,” head coach Johnny Dawkins said in a release by the Stanford athletic department. “Aaron has been a leader for us on and off the court.
“It’s a really tough blow,” said Bright. “I can guarantee you that I wouldn’t want to play and battle on the court with anyone else other than the guys in that locker room. We have created such a bond. I’m so grateful to have had Coach Dawkins and such a prestigious group of coaches guide me to become a better basketball player.”
For his career, Bright tallied 316 assists, which ranks tenth in program history.
