Syracuse center DaJuan Coleman will require knee surgery and miss the remainder of the 2013-14 season, the school announced Monday afternoon.
“This is a tremendous disappointment, especially considering the amount of hard work DaJuan has been putting in with our basketball team,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said in a release. “We will certainly miss his contributions.”
Coleman missed five of the last six games after experiencing pain in his right knee against Villanova on Dec. 28. The sophomore appeared just once since then, in a three minute stretch against Virginia Tech on Jan. 7.
This will be the second time Coleman will have had surgery in the last two years. He also missed time last year because of surgery on his left MCL. He was averaging 4.3 points and 4.2 rebounds this season in 13 games with 12 starts.
