Oklahoma sophomore guard Je’lon Hornbeak will miss up to a month and a half with after a breaking a bone in his foot , the school announced on Tuesday.

The 6-foot-4 Hornbeak suffered the injury during practice on Tuesday morning, and although the recovery does not require surgery, it will take up four to six weeks for him to be back in the lineup with the 8-1 Sooners. Hornbeak was averaging 5.7 points, 2.9 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game.

“We’re very disappointed for Je’lon,” Oklahoma head coach Lon Kruger said in a statement. “He battled another injury to his foot in the preseason, and now this one. This will impact our team significantly while he is out.”

In late August, Hornbeak underwent surgery to fix a stress fracture in the fifth metatarsal of the right foot. The broken bone suffered on Tuesday happened in his left foot.

Oklahoma hosts Tulsa on Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m. at the Lloyd Noble Center.
