Maryland men's basketball center Trayvon Reed will miss eight to twelve weeks with a fractured right ankle, the school announced in a press release Tuesday evening. Reed, a consensus top 100 player, is expected to have an immediate impact for the Terrapins this season, after the departures of sophomores Charles Mitchell and Shaq Cleare.
The injury was discovered during Reed's pre-participation physical at Maryland. Fortunately for Reed, the injury will not require surgery.
The injury was sustained while Reed was still in high school this past April.
While it won't require surgery, the injury is still a setback for the freshman center and for a Maryland team that will be counting on Reed and several other new faces to make an immediate impact this season, following the departure of five players from the basketball team this off-season.
Based on an eight to twelve week timeframe, Reed could return sometime in August or September. Reed should be back in time for preseason practice.
