BERKELEY, Calif. -- California center DeVon Hardin will miss 8 to 12 weeks with a stress fracture in his left foot, sidelining the Golden Bears' best post player for most of the Pac-10 season.
Hardin injured his foot late in the first half of an 84-50 win against Furman on Tuesday night. The school said he will have surgery on Friday.
Hardin was averaging 10.7 points and 8.4 rebounds per game for the Bears (8-3), and leads the team with 21 blocked shots.
Hardin is expected back between Feb. 15 and March 15. Cal already lost center Jordan Wilkes to a season-ending knee injury in November.
