Standout Providence sophomore guard Kris Dunn is done for the season. Surgery will be required on his right shoulder, which has been a lingering issue for weeks now, following the injury during an exhibition game at the start of November.
The news was broken Wednesday via a school announcement.
Injuries to Dunn have been a motif of his college career, having been hampered for both of his seasons at PC. Last year he missed the team's first nine games after recovering from a torn labrum and an injury to the same shoulder. Dunn's recruitment to Providence was considered to be a boon, what with him being the rare McDonald's All-American to land on that campus.
Dunn played four games this season, averaging 5.0 assists, 3.8 points and 2.5 rebounds. Providence is 8-2 and hosts Yale on Dec. 17.
