MILWAUKEE (AP) -Wisconsin forward Jon Leuer broke his left wrist in Saturday's win against Purdue and is out indefinitely.
It's a major blow for a team coming off its biggest victory of the season.
The school announced the injury Monday and said Leuer would have surgery on Tuesday, two days after the 17th-ranked Badgers topped then-No. 4 Purdue 73-66.
Leuer, a junior, has started all 16 games for Wisconsin and has been the Badgers second-leading scorer, averaging 15.4 points along with a team-high 6.2 rebounds per game.
Leuer broke his wrist in the first half when he tried to brace himself during a fall. He went on and played 38 of 40 minutes, but shot just 2 of 15 from the field for four points and grabbed 10 rebounds.
