TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -Arizona guard Nic Wise had knee surgery Wednesday and could miss four to six weeks.
Wise had surgery to repair a torn meniscus that he suffered last week at USC, coach Kevin O'Neill said. Wise managed to play against UCLA on Saturday, but when the injury did not improve, he was taken out of Tuesday's practice.
Wise's absence could be a big blow for the Wildcats (15-7, 5-4 Pac-10), who are tied for third in the Pac-10. Arizona has already weathered injuries to leading scorer Jerryd Bayless and forward Bret Brielmaier.
``He's our only real true point guard,'' O'Neill said.
Wise, a sophomore, leads Arizona with 89 assists and 41 steals. He averages 8.3 points per game.
O'Neill said he had not decided who would replace Wise in the starting lineup. Arizona's next game is against Arizona State at McKale Center on Sunday.
