Georgia Tech’s rough start to the season got worse on Wednesday.
The Yellow Jackets announced that they have lost starting center Robert Carter indefinitely to a torn meniscus. He injured the knee on Sunday against Charlotte and an MRI on Tuesday revealed the tear. He will have surgery next Tuesday to repair the damage.
“He’s a tough kid, and this hit him pretty hard,” said Gregory. “He’s done everything we’ve asked of him this year. He’s changed his body, he’s become more aggressive on the glass, and his stats clearly show that he was having a tremendous sophomore season for us. He’s a big part of what we do both offensively and defensively. We won’t know exactly what the nature of the injury is until the surgery occurs.”
Carter is averaging 10.3 points and 9.3 boards, leading the ACC, this season. He’s started all 44 games in his Tech career.
Look for Kammeon Holsey to get a bump in minutes in his absence.
Georgia Tech kicks off ACC play on Saturday at Maryland.
