LOS ANGELES (AP) -Southern California sophomore guard Marcus Simmons will miss 8-to-12 weeks after having surgery to remove additional bone growth in his left leg due to complications from an ankle injury last season.
Simmons was limited to 15 games last season after sustaining a high ankle sprain on the first day of practice. He averaged 0.5 points and 1.5 rebounds in 6.7 minutes. He had the latest surgery Tuesday, coach Tim Floyd said Friday.
The Trojans open the season Nov. 15 against UC Irvine.
