TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama forward Jordan Bruner is out indefinitely with a right knee injury.
The school says Bruner sustained a meniscus injury in Tuesday night’s win over Kentucky. Bruner underwent a procedure Wednesday morning performed by Dr. Lyle Cain of Andrews Sports Medicine in Birmingham.
Alabama said there was no specific timetable for Bruner’s return but he is expected to make a full recovery and play again this season.
Bruner is averaging 7.8 points and 5.9 rebounds. The 6-foot-10, 225-pound graduate transfer from Yale leads the team in blocks (16) and steals (20).
The Crimson Tide has won its first five Southeastern Conference games and six in a row overall.
