Marquette's Duane Wilson to miss start of season with leg injury
Marquette's point guard battle might have just been decided, as freshman Duane Wilson suffered a stress fracture in his leg and will miss multiple weeks.
After losing three key perimeter players from a season ago, Marquette’s key going forward could be its point guard play. Unfortunately, the Golden Eagles suffered a setback on Monday.
Freshman Duane Wilson has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his left leg and will miss the start of the season, the school announced.
“[He] will be evaluated on a consistent basis, but is expected to miss multiple weeks during the rehabilitation process,” a release from the school stated.
Wilson, a 6-foot-3 prospect from Dominican (Wisc.), was expected to battle junior Derrick Wilson for the starting job. Starting guards Junior Cadougan, Vander Blue and Trent Lockett have all graduated, meaning head coach Buzz Williams has had to work on some different combinations n the perimeter. Without Duane Wilson, it looks like Derrick Wilson, Todd Mayo and freshman JaJuan Johnson will handle most of the backcourt duties.
Marquette opens its season Nov. 8 against Southern.
